Nice neat tie!

 

That fly can take so many different types of fish in so many different conditions.

 

I'm taking notes on all the father-daughter tying. I have a 8 month old! So far she loves holding soft feathers. :D

i have caught plenty of trout on a fly like that, but i think it had a biot tail.

 

either way, it is a fish catcher, the bluegills would tear that up too! have her tie a few more of those puppies and make a day out of it.

This little fly is pretty awesome to fish. Thom, don't worry I will have plenty of these little guys. Swinks the fly you are talking about is a Prince Nymph that has the biots on the tail and the head, also an awesome fly that I have a ton of. Great for Salmon as odd as it sounds but what I use most to catch my Salmon on with a read bead about four inches up the line from the fly. Anyway thanks again guys.

Cool, I got what you're saying now. I'm going to have to tie me up a few with a biot tail, oh man, use a yellow biot :headbang: yeah going to have to do a few of those as well. Now you have my head going.

Back to the forum. I the the BHP with a tuft of red yarn. Last longer than feathers. One of the vest flies...bar none!

The Brown Hackle is one of my favorite flies, although I use either a pheasant tippet or no tail, but I'm sure that'll catch a lot of trout!
