my go to sunfish pattern. I love sunfish, there is no lie. They are easy to find, easy to catch and they fight stubborn. Catch a sunfish on a 3wt figerglass rod is a great way to spend hot summer afternoon. This is my first choice sunfish pattern- olive wooly buggers, some similar variates (crayfish imitation) are also good for bass. I like to tie in long traditional rooster hackles. This special hackle was from my friends' chicken farm - Americana spp.
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
