The Big Weather Event – Rogue River

It should be interesting to see how this graph changes with the rainfall over the next couple of days. Get ready for the hockey stick to show. The fish will like it. Good escapement.

Dropping back into shape fairly fast this mid-December. The hills obviously not saturated yet this winter.

Waddington Jock Scott for steelhead

A few steps to tying a Waddington Jock Scott. Comparison of a regular Jock Scott pattern and a Waddington Jock Scott.

The Waddington shank Jock Scott is similar to the regular hook Jock Scott in colors and materials. However the similarity ends there with the Intruder-style octopus hook attached to the posterior end of the shank. The tip, tag and butt section, found in the classic, salmon-hook pattern, are tied on the rear octopus hook. The majority body section and wing of the fly are tied “in the round” on the Waddington shank. In truth this wing built “in the round” is different than the classic, upright Atlantic salmon fly wing, but the colors and effect are much the same. Hope the fish agree.

Waddington Shanks come in several different lengths.
