  1. Muddled Michigan Spruce Moth II Playing around with a variation on the first one; added a shuck and wrapped the body around it, which probably won’t make much difference. hook - WFC Model 3 #10 thread - Veevus 8/0 tan shuck - Congo Hair shiner tan body - pronghorn wing - Congo Hair shiner tan shoulder - ginger collar/head pronghorn Regards, Scott
  2. Fatal Attractor Not to be confused with Dan Blanton's Fatal Attraction. Found this on the Hatch site; made a few changes but the results are pretty much the same. hook - WFC Model 3 #10 thread - Danville 6/0 fluoro orange tail - Krystal Flash orange body - Ice Dub orange wing - pronghorn indicator- FTD Parapost Yarn hot orange hackle - ginger Regards, Scott
  3. E12 Caddis A French pattern, tied here in somber tones; finally found something to use the hen redhead skin on. hook - WFC Model 3 #12 thread - Uni 8/0 rusty dun body - Ice Dub hare’s ear wing - hen redhead breast (2) hackle - dun Regards, Scott
  4. It’s definitely softer than deer or elk and probably won’t last thru too many fish but with a fly like this, durability isn’t going to be a strong point no matter what hair is used. Then again, I’ve had deer hair bullethead flies explode after a couple of fish and they were still effective. To tell the truth, this one was tied for fun because I thought it looked interesting. I’ll give it a try this summer because I like to spend my time on the stream experimenting; if it catches a fish or two, that’ll be cool. Regards, Scott
  5. Name came from the guy who initially posted on Instagram, @jdtrout6908 Regards, Scott
  6. Notional tying sequence but there aren’t many materials or routes to get from bend to eye. hook - WFC Model 3 #12 thread - Uni 8/0 camel rib - x-small wire gold abdomen - turkey biot dark tan thorax - pronghorn hackle - pronghorn dyed brown (1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow, 1/4 Tsp Rit Dark Brown/1 cup water) wing - Congo Hair Shiner Tan Start thread at 3/4 mark; tie in rib, wrap to bend Tie in moistened biot; wrap to 3/4 mark, tie off/trim Rib body; helicopter end/cover with thread Clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of ungulate hair; trim/tie in with 2 loose wraps, let it spin Tie in CH; fold forward, tie down Pull hair forward; tie down at eye, creating a ball, then stroke tips back and tie down Half hitch x 2, SHHAN, trim wing Regards, Scott
  7. JD’s Mayfly Emerger II (PT variation) Playing with proportions; a little heavier on the wing here. hook - WFC Model 28 #12 thread - Uni 8/0 camel shuck - Congo Hair brown rib - x-small wire copper abdomen - pheasant tail thorax - Ice Dub orange wingpad - 1mm foam brown legs - pronghorn dyed brown (1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow, 1/4 Tsp Rit Cocoa Brown/1 cup water) wing - Congo Hair Shiner Tan Regards, Scott
  8. Nice fly. Charlie Craven’s Hi-Viz spinner has worked well for me for years; easy to tie, easy to see, floats well, catches fish. Regards, Scott
  9. JD’s Mayfly Emerger (variation) An interesting pattern that looked more involved than it turned out to be; check out his SBS https://www.instagram.com/p/B95ELsNBO-X/ and see if you agree. Again, changed up a few of the materials based on what was within my grasp. hook - WFC Model 28 #12 thread - Uni 8/0 tan shuck - Congo Hair brown rib - Krystal Flash rootbeer abdomen - turkey biot tan thorax - Ice Dub tan wingpad - 1mm foam tan legs - pronghorn dyed brown (1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow, 1/4 Tsp Rit Dark Brown/1 cup water) wing - Congo Hair Shiner Tan Regards, Scott
  10. Quigley’s Hi-Viz Callibaetis Spinner Another summer fly because I can’t convince myself I need to tie up some scuds and Zebra’s for the coming tailwater season. Changed a few of the materials based on what was within my grasp. hook - WFC Model 3 #14 thread - MFC 8/0 sand tail - grizzly hackle fibers rib - x-small wire silver abdomen - turkey flat fibers light dun thorax - dubbing coyote hackle - grizzly shellback/wing - FTD Parachute Post Yarn hot orange Regards, Scott
  11. Thanks; I’ll bring my scissors with me when I try them out. Regards, Scott
  12. Spruce Moth (Italian Caddis style) Loop-dubbed ungulate bodies & heads make for a floating fly; found them here. Need to test-drive it to see how it floats; may have to trim the underside flat. hook - WFC Model 3 #12 thread - Veevus 8/0 tan body - pronghorn (loop dubbed) wings - sharptail grouse/resin collar/head - pronghorn (loop dubbed) Regards, Scott
  13. SHH Mother’s Day Caddis hook - WFC Model 3 #14 thread - Danville 6/0 brown butt - FTD Shuck Yarn amber rib - x-small wire gold body - peacock herl wing - Congo Hair grey collar - squirrel hair (loop dubbed) Regards, Scott
  14. Muddled Michigan Spruce Moth I was just fooling around with nothing particular in mind when the fly started to take shape. This can function as a general attractor; moth imitations will be tied on smaller iron. hook - WFC Model 6 #8 thread - UTC 140 tan body - pronghorn wing - Congo Hair shiner tan shoulder - sharptail grouse head/collar - pronghorn Regards, Scott
  15. The Jinglers I’ve seen, mostly on various U.K. sites, have a dry fly hackle fronted with a longer softhackle collar, often, but not always, partridge. Regards, Scott
