Current version of the Pink Lipstick.
Fished for 3 hours this afternoon and got 7. All were on pink (Pink Lipstick, Victoria Secret and Wet Pinky). Again the bite was very inconsistent. Saw 4 other fly anglers (including Jefe, Sam and Cookie) and 5 bobber guys. The other fly anglers only got a few but the bobber guys were hooking up below us. It’s going to get too crowded for me soon and I’ll be looking further upriver.

Looks like it's tied on a TMC2457 #8.
I guess I'll have to tie up some Lipstick, Victoria Secret flies and hopefully will get to use them. I'll be home the second week of June, hopefully in time for some shad fishing. Once again, my goal is to get 200 days of fishing in this year. So far I'm at 74, still a long ways to go. I'll get at least 34 days in Baja with 6 months to finish out the year.
Thanks for posting the patterns.
I'll bet the Lipstick fly would entice a carp. Guess I'll have to try it out.

Hi Jay, The Lipstick is tied on a size 10 Firehole 637 so the #8 2457 is a close match. The VSPT is tied on a size 12 Firehole 633. Have fun in Baja!
Jeff, thanks for the fly pics!

Got to the river early this morning and when I started to walk out into the water a sea lion showed up. I waited for 20 minutes after it moved on, just when 4 bobber guys showed up across from me. The bobber guys got 2 and I ended up with 10 to hand in almost 6 hours of fishing. There were two other fly anglers (Cookie and William) and William caught one higher up river. All of my fish were caught on a Pink Lipstick except for one on a Ronald McDonald and another on a small Wet Pinky.
Do you fish more than one fly at a time?
