He's back. I suppose that I could manage some Sparkle Green Rockworms in one color or another. Sign me up.

What do Aztecs look like in their larval stage?

You don't miss a trick, do you?

Yes, that's an egg. An Aztec egg, made from the same knitting yarn.
He asked about the Aztec's 'larval' form. You and I know that fish don't larvalize; I guess he's an ignoramous ( grin ).

But that's not the Rockworm (caddis larva) I'll tie for the Swap. (Remember the flies I rushed up because you lost my real submission...)

I'd say that a fish fry is "larvalized" and I'd be keenly interested in seeing what the Aztec Master could concoct with his yarns in that regard, were he so inclined.

What, exactly, would tickle your fancy?
I've tied Aztecs down to 16 or 20 (not really worth it- a small Aztec Leech is easier to tie and provides as much silhouette); the pic is of the Egg, which can go alone or with a cream veil of the gunk that can hang to eggs, and which can be tied in front of any of the Aztec patterns to create an Egg-Sucking Aztec XXX. What else is there? Have design?, will travel.

I was wondering of it's possible to do an Aztec that has the "egg" (yolk sac) hanging under it's belly. I'd think your yarn would give it a nice glow.

Having looked at your flies and being unable to visualize how you build them, adding a yolk sack is even harder to visualize

Here's a first attempt:

(Forgive the focus and color balance. blush )

The current and strip should fold that back and meld it all up. I bet it'd pass.


You don't have to visualize the tying. It's easy. I could have you up and running in no time (just ask 1minute wink ). And your wife probably has baskets full of the acrylic knitting yarn needed. She wouldn't miss a few inches.

I can sure visualize that fly being greedily consumed by something big! Looks great. Very translucent. Thanks for taking the time!

FWIW, I have discussed the topic with 1minute and I don't recall the word "easy" being used in any part of the dialogue.

Really, I'd be happy to get you going. And I do consider it a very simple tie.

Re the above fly, I'll have to take it into the tub- gotta worry about too much on the bottom trying to overturn the fly and affect its ride (though that effect might be one of 'injured baby' and all the mamma fish might come to its 'aid').

I like the bit of color up front to potentially focus the strike on that area. I seem to get quite a few fish grabbing the tail and getting a free taste.

I'm game for trying to learn the tie, if you think it can be accomplished by a guy with ten thumbs to work with!
