Double Cocked Streamer (Peacock and Jungle Cock)

Recommended Posts

I've included a couple other photos of this fly in the pattern database. The close-up shows the colors better than this photo.

Jon Boy (John) - I don't know how well these streamers work on brown trout. Hopefully someone else can answer your question.

 

WaterWolf (Lee) - Yes, the photos were taken with my Pentax Optio W30. I am very happy with the macro photos this camera takes. The resolution of photos (7.1 megapixel) is really amazing, but it also shows every flaw on a fly ( :angry: ). The photos I posted are not at the full resolution, so the originals are even more detailed. I exported the photos to a smaller format to reduce the size of the files.

Thanks Ray for the camera info - I know you mentioned to me in a prior thread that it is a great camera.. and waterproof to boot!!! I think the Pentax Optio will be a future purchase for sure. My Nikon 5700 also has a great macro - one of the reasons I bought it originally - and as you said the macro can be so good taking fly shots it can almost be too close for comfort :D :D !!!

 

Cheers

Lee
