Re: No Name Flymph

RnF - My post may have been a bit confusing. The pattern posted I use for trout and tie in sizes #16-#10. Has worked very well for me. I started playing with the pattern for steelhead because they like buggy flies around my neck of the woods and I thought that the orange yarn my have some egg attrac...

Re: No Name Flymph

Thanks all.

Philip - Thanks for the bit of history. I had read that a few years ago but had forgotten the story.

Hans - That is a nice example sent to you. I was trying to find a nicely tied one to post...should have just went to your site. The Ke-He is a very nice pattern in its own right.

Re: Some nice work

I was thinking the same. I've been overwhelmed with ideas.

Re: No Name Flymph

I really like this fly. Question, what's the purpose of the orange antron? Hi Scott - I think it is most likely for attractive properties. The Kee Hee has yarn under the tippets, I swapped the positions. I tie this same pattern as a weighted nymph on a curved #8 hook for steelhead. I think it could...

No Name Flymph

Here is another one of my variation patterns. This is probably my most consistent producing pattern on my local waters. This pattern was inspired by the Ke-He fly. http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac275/OldHat_photos/Old%20Hat%20Flies/GTFlymph.jpg Hook: Any wet Thread: Black silk thread Tail: Gold...

Iron Blue Dun V.

Hi all - Testing my picture posting abilities. If all goes well you should be looking at my Iron Blue Dun variation. I'm easy going...likes and dislikes always welcome. This fly has really produced for me all year round, for a couple years now, since I started tying it. I do enjoy tying the traditio...

Re: head cement

Most of mine are waxed thread with a whip finish. But for donations, swaps, etc. I'll use just a dab of griffith's thin.

Re: Peacock Attractor

Nice fly. I can attest to the fact that peacock bodies and blue peacock hackles do very well on lakes here in Oregon and also the Kamloops area of BC.

Re: Crunchy Damsel

Aaron - just an addition. Wonderful fly buy the way. Have you tried working with ostrich herl. I tie an almost identical pattern for damsels and use ostrich herl for the tail and body. I usually wrap with 3 strands of herl and use about 3-5 tips for the tail. It should give you a smaller build up. I...
