Found this over on Ward Bean's site http://www.warmwaterflytyer.com/welcome.asp. Supposed to be a bluegill pattern (what fly isn't a bluegill pattern?); looks like it could work elsewhere, too.


hook - Dai Riki 280 #10
underbody - non-tox .025 (optional)
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tail - pheasant rump
rib - x-small wire copper
body - peacock herl
wing - pheasant rump
hackle - Indian hen


Regards,
Scott

Scott,
Fantastic looking pattern! Any combination of the three main ingredients listed in your recipe is sure to be a winner! And yes, thankfully, just about every trout pattern ever conceived is an excellent Bluegill pattern! This one is no exception! You have given me inspiration! I am now off to see the link from Ward Bean that you have posted! Thanks for that too!

Exceptional in every respect. The profile and material combination makes for a wonderfully "buggy" fly. Wonderful stuff Scott!

I'd steal flies from you any day...and several times on weekends... :twisted: :D :lol:

Switched to salmon iron, added a gold tinsel tag and swapped the hen hackle with pheasant rump - and it's pretty much a Carey Special.

That dog will hunt! I love scaling flies up like that. They scale up beautifully.
