The Betsy and her Cousins

It is no secret what my favorite fly is since it is in a lot of the pictures I post and this year I have been tying the same a style fly in a few different colors and giving them various names mostly as joke a with my friends. They interesting thing is they have all been successful and on a few occasions the hot fly of the day.

Today I made up another variation but have not decided on a name as yet but I am open to suggestions.

I made new flies these today because I am laying low and was bored hanging around the house. I thought about doing a post with all the variations I tied this year and put it on one thread. When I started to do this I found I did not have a real good picture of the original Betsy so I took a picture of that and then the one fly tied today as well the others I did earlier this year to put on one post. I also have a couple in Black variation waiting in the wings for the fall.

What we need Dick is for a bunch of us to get together and fish one spot. Each of us with a different variation of your Betsy and record the results.

Get Together

Bob I remember I wanted to do a get together a few years back at Scusset In October and we got blown out with Gale Force winds. If the shore fishing picks up in the fall and I can find the right tides on a weekend I think I might try to do it again.

I KNOW IF MY FRIENDS SHOW UP, THEY ALL HAVE BETSY'S AND IT WOULD BE INTERESTING. WE COULD CALL IT "THE BETSY & THE OTHER FLIES OF RENOWN TOURNAMENT" Caps were on but not typing it over. Anyway don't want to exclude anyone from having a good time, so all flies are more than welcome. Anyway sort of a take off of The State of Rhode Island and The Providence Plantations name thing.

Maybe we all put one fly in a bucket and the big fish wins the the bucket full of flies.

I am sure between my friends and I we could hook each guy up with a Betsy of their choice.

I would surely make the drive up ( 3-4 hr ) for a get together if it happens. My 4x4 would be @ service for a couple of members who might have a hard time walking the beach.
