Saturday's fly for fun

Recommended Posts

As I no longer have my library I can't be sure of the reference, but I have seen similar flies under the name "Gaudy Flies". They pre dated the built wing salmon flies. of the later 19C. I see no reason that will not fish well.

 

Cheers,

C.

Neat info Crackaig. According to the salmon fly book from which learned the pattern, it's called the "Goofy".

 

And yes despatiesim, I hear ya - I also like throwing different stuff at them especially later in the season when they have had hundreds of flies swung over their heads...

Seems like the JF eye is superfluous... could just paint one of the dots on the guinea wing yellow-orange.

Ya FlaFly, good observation, though this is tied according to the pattern specs found in the book. Perhaps once it's wet and swinging in the river it the JC will look good and prove to be advantageous...

very clean, and very colorful, but will it catch a fish? Is that a specific pattern or did you create this?
