  1. this is my first attempt for a steelhead fly. i know that there's some things that i need to work on with this fly, such as body tinsel and putting on the tail better and stopping the thread before the bend of the hook. anyway, i would greatly appreciate feedback and even some alterations to this pattern. so here is the material list: Hook: Gamaktsu SL11-3H size 8 Thread: red Body: opal tinsel, medium Tail: hot pink buck tail Wing: Fl. Cerlse Buck tail Collar: Pink spay hackle
  2. thats an awesome fly! if only i culd afford more materials then i have. http://www.flytyingforum.com/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif
  3. thats alot of help. the stream that ill be fishing is on the west side of the hood canal (as i may have mentioned earlier) alot of cutties for the canal use it for spawning. ill have to remember the red and yellow. maybe a micky finn or a wolly bugger with a yellow and red maribou tail or sonthing alond those lines.
  4. a big thank you to everyone who has helped me with this question. now that i have enough patterns to fill my fly box does anyone know places that i can find cheap materials to tie these? ive already talked to my local taxidermist, whos a snob and wants me to pay a higher cost then the fly shops, with no luck. thanks again everyone
  5. i have finally found out the name of the creek that we will be fishing. its called lilliwaup creek and is located on the west side of the Hood Canal
  6. ive been trying to find the right kind of hackle for tyeing wolly buggers but i have no luck. theres so many kinds of hackle out on the market that is getting confusing. so what kind of hackle should i use for tyeing wolly buggers? Ty
  7. awesome info thanks ill keep my eye out for that book. if you want a good back country lake theres the flap lakes which are alpine lakes in the Olympic National Park. and if youll be in washington in august the pink salmon are running this summer
  8. */thanks guys. my favorite fly is the wolly bugger so thats what i based the first one off of. as for the flashabou all my local shop has is silver but ill keep my eye out for it
  9. pinks are my favorite to tie for heres a couple flies that ive tied that might work. feed back is greatly appreciated. also if you guys have patterns that work splease share so i can expand my skills Ty
  10. thanks guys. this is a big help. one question that i do have though is are there any wet flies or streamers that are affective in small streams?
  11. Oncorhynchus gorbuscha is the scientific name for Pink Salmon or humpback salmon which are my favorite fish to fish for as well as tie for.
  12. thank you. we fish for humpies ever run and its a blast! the only reason that i know the scientific name is because I'm a natural resources student and i learned most of them last quarter. its alot of fun to go to school and just ask the whole room what rivers are hot that week or where the elk, deer or geese are :yahoo: I took some aquatic classes as well so I was surprised I remembered what it was cause that was 7 or 8 years ago yeah i love it. i've been looking up patterns but cant find any instructions to tie them. i've found that royal coachman/wulf and pheasant tail nymphs work

  14. I'm not sure exactly there's multiple streams that we fish. the one that were going to be fishing a lot this spring we've only herd about. all the info that i have is that the best spot is the pool of a waterfall. i believe that the stream is no wider then 10 feet across.
