The Pink Squirrel   2 comments

I’ve been working on my Pink Squirrels. Of course I mean the fly created and perfected by John Bethke. His seem a little more flashy than mine due to the fact that he uses a much hairier dubbing mix mixed with some flash. I think I read somewhere he puts muskrat fur and crystal flash into a blender and chops it up. That’s kind of what it looks like.

But, I think mine with catch fish.

How many blog posts do you think exist in the world that are related to the Pink Squirrel fly? Let’s just say it’s north of 40, because I didn’t get to any search results besides the Pink Squirrel fly until I made it to page 4 in Google’s results. I’ve heard it said that this fly catches fish. I’ll bear witness to that, having caught most of my “fish-on-the-fly” fish on a Pink Squirrel.

One of these Pink Squirrels is not like the others
