Skater Of The Month For September 2017: Rick's Gold (Natural Version)
Rick introduced me to his gold skater last year and with the success he experienced on our trip to the North Umpqua, I decided to tie some gold skaters of my own. Sure enough, I found immediate success using gold on both the NU and on my homewater.
I faded away from using gold when other color combos like the Ninja came into play, but after a fellow orderd some gold skaters from me recently, I started revisting tying more gold skaters for myself.
I recalled Rick's confidence in muddlers so I decided to try using natural cow elk and tan foam. The combination of the flash of gold with somber natural elk and tan foam looks like a winning blend to me. Will see if the fall season provides any data.
