Fly Tying

What is your favorite fly pattern?

Recommended Posts

PT Soft Hackle. Simple, elegant and super effective in every trout stream I've visited. I've always had a soft spot for a Parachute Adams as it's the first fly I had real success on.

Keep 'em coming...love to hear about patterns that I hadn't heard of previously...especially deadly ones!

This year it's been a Yellow Montreal with a Copper John dropper. It's about a 50/50 on which one the fish take.

Emerger patterns, anything that rides in the surface film.

Mayfly, caddis, crane and midges - I have has more consistent success over the years whether it be still water, streams and rivers, especially seams and eddys.

Thursthouse,

Thank you!

 

Umpqua C200BL 12,14,16

Blk 8/0 Uni-thread

Silver oval tinsel fine

Body - Black Rabbit / black SLF squirrel nymph mix

Thorax Mid- Orange nymph dubbing

Thorax Front - Black Squirrel w/ "bench trash" sparkle mixed in

Wing - Lt Dun CDC feather tied in bubble style

 

Bench trash is left over tinsel/dubbing that I set aside when tying. When i have a small tray full I toss it in the spice grinder and give it a whirl or two.

I have found it comes in handy for things like thorax dubbing, beetle & grasshopper under bodies etc. a little sparkle but not too much and coarse texture.

Wooly bugger in black with a little red flashabou. If I had time I would add a beadhead. I have trout, bass, panfish, pickerel mackerel, striped bass, landlocked salmon and I am probably forgetting some using it in sizes 8-12. Easy to tie and it just catches fish.

Dry, love me some caddis.
