Re: Cheumatopsyche pupa (Little Sister Sedge)

Great imitation John.

Ray, how does the Ghillie get away with posting a photo of a fly without the recipe and without some Letumgo reprimand?

Re: Light Badger Dun Flymph

Thanks gentlemen. I really like how the colors blended on this one. I was after a generic light yellow/creamy dun pattern for pmd, ped and etc. I didn't think Cahill but I can certainly see that as well.

Oh, the hook is a Daiichi 1110 and I raised the eye up a bit.

Light Badger Dun Flymph

Found myself playing around with a some new hen hackle today. Its a variant badger with a dun center and light cream tips. Tail is mallard dyed tan and the dubbing is red fox on primrose silk.

Ron, there is always the Green-butt Skunk. Its a great trout pattern as well. I use the black skunk and white for the body and thorax.

Re: A Salmonberry Fly

Bill I actually thought about going with the gold rib and partridge dyed dun on that one. Will have to give it a go. Would be a cousin to the Tups. Ron, the fish will still be there. I remember back when it blew out bad one year and everyone thought it was going to be bad. Water was high for a while...

Re: A Salmonberry Fly

Thanks Gentlemen.

Bill - Yes, a little mole touched dubbed.

Good idea Swellcat - However, won't be using my Pearsall's silk for a body on a #2. But I do have pink flosss.

Re: Hamilton's CDC skunk flymph, my way

Well done. Should be a great small black pattern. That would work great on the high lakes.

A Salmonberry Fly

Had a couple ideas for a fly using salmonberry silk thread. I haven't seen too many patterns using the salmonberry color. First fly - partridge hackle, salmonberry Pearsall's gossamer silk ribbed with primrose and a thorax of mole and seal. Second fly - partridge hackle, salmonberry thread and touch...
