Goodbye Day Tripper

Alex from The Day Tripper is closing up shop for good. It’s sad news really as it was one of those blogs I read on a weekly basis. He has promised to open put up a new site in its stead after a short break, and is planning on a site targeted to more of an informational destination with some articles and patterns. Here is a pattern from his archive, the Madonna. Click the image below to bring up his entire fly pattern archive.

Rib: Medium Red Wire
Body: Same as Tail
Underwing: Red Rabbit
