A FAT THUNDER & LIGHTNING

Recommended Posts

:D Hi

 

Here's a fat thunder&lightning that I'm going to use now in april for seatrout in river Ljungan. When i tie flies for seatrout I try to make them fatter and more bushy than the more slim and streamlined salmon versions.

 

The tapering of the wing is still important though and I often use a longer body with more amounts of dubbing to make the wing impression fat.

 

On this fly I have also used the original templedog technique with folded wings.

 

Here's the dressing

 

tag: Gold Lagartun wire and fluo red antron

tail: Red fluro fibre

Body: 1/2 Lagartun copper flatbraid 1/2 black Lite Brite

rib: Gold lagartun wire

body hackle: Fluo orange badger

front hackle: Teal blue grizzly saddle

wing: pearl and root beer krinkle flash, bunch of fierybrown hair, Crayfish orange angelhair, bunch of black hair. Over the wing 3 strands of Peacock krinkle flash

sides: JC

head: Gold conehead size XS

tube: M+ XS FITS

 

Quite simple to tie, I usually massproduce them since spring fishing for seatrout often means sinking lines and bottom snagging.

 

Tight lines

hi Tompa

Great T&L . :thumbsup:

That pattern will kill seatrout not only in the spring but all ways (in various sizes ofcause).

I would put in a few straw of Copper flash as well.

Regards
