FLIES WITH AUTONOMY. THE "LA MOSCA VIVA DE CHOLO - CHOLO'S LIVING FLY."
Fly Fishing with the LIVING FLY - "La Mosca Viva" is a novel technique,
effective, surprising and almost infinite in its possibilities. Till now
we could mimic the colors, sizes and even the realistic details in our
fly patterns, but now, thanks to this invention, we have the opportunity
to animate our flies, imitating the movement, in the water or on its
surface, of insects and animals that are interesting to fishing. Our
imitations continue moving after we stop their advance, just as a live
animal or insect would do. An innovative fishing technique which had not
been possible until now.
How it works?
Once we cast the fly over the water, we pull our line making the fly
turn on itself transmitting vibrations while our tippet and line spins
accumulating energy, which will be released as soon as we stop our fly.
The tippet and the line are unwound when the fly stops, releasing stored
energy causing our imitation continues moving in a funny way for 6
seconds, and in some models up to 10 or 12 seconds. Depending on the
strength of our tugs and the distance ran by the fly, we can control the
energy and therefore the time and intensity of the movements of our
This technique is possible due to the blades and propellers under the
brand "Cholo's LIVING FLY" designed by me and incorporated into my
flies. Among my patterns you can find imitations of insects from on the
20 hook (ants or flies small stones, etc..) to insects tied on a 6 hook.
This technique can be used both in surface fishing with dry flies and
nymphs and sunken nymphs, streamers, etc.
The blades and propellers have been designed to be tied into the flies
patterns, but I have also developed a bite indicator "LIVING FLY" which
provides the same movement in our imitations without these having to be
tied with the blades "LIVING FLY ".
The "LIVING FLY" can be used both for fly fishing as for spinning, so
it is valid for any type of fishing in freshwater and at sea.
