Hey everybody,
This here is a little nymph that I always keep in my box. I know that it is basically just a pheasant tail variation, but man o man does this thing work, I always outfish my friends when they have a regular pheasant tail nymph on. I know it looks a little goofy, with the red floss, krystal flash, and peacock collar, but just tie a few and try it and you'll see why it's my "go to" fly. I also apologize for the poor photos, I am saving for a better lense.

Hook: Curved Scud or caddis pupa hook of choice, size #12- 16
Thread: Brown or Red, 8/0
Bead: Gold Or Copper
Tail: Pheasant Tail Fibers
Body: Three sections of pheasant tail fibers and red floss
Rib: Copper wire, small
Thorax: Peacock Herl
Shellcase: Pheasant tail fibers
Sides: Gold or Copper Krystal Flash
Collar: Peacock Herl


Hope it catches you the next big one!
Thank You,
Carson LeBoeuf

Was mucking around with my materials, and created this pheasant wing streamer thingy , it's on a size 12 short shank hook, olive hares ear dubbing, fine silver tinsel rib and black palmered hackle, and fibres from a primary feather, folded, then separated for the wing :D

I was just wondering, can anyone get in on the fly pictures? I sure hope so, cause here is my go-to nymph. Especially in the spring.

I call it the Faux Bead Head Dogs-butt (FBHDB) but it is just a Hare's Ear with my own touches. B)

Wow some really nice patterns coming off the bench this month, mine are rather simple boring things in comparison!

Picked up a new large box to fill, has a pretty bonefish on it.

My version of a sparkle minnow, similar to the whitebait i posted a while back but with a marabou tail for extra action

Posted Image

Needed a better image of this, it is a glorified dubbing brush clouser which i have caught all sorts of fish on, it's enchanted and my 'lucky fly'

Posted Image

Thought i would get a better image of the pink comets, finished off a dozen of each, this one is the large bead chain.

Posted Image

And this is the small.

Posted Image

*edit* forgot to add i will be swinging these on rivers like this in August...

Some flies tied with stretch cord and metallic thread from the craft store. Bit of red seal fur in a split thread for the head.

Piker, those little red head things look like the bream would eat them up, kind of like a little inch worm.

Mike, those are great looking flies and photos. Hard to go wrong with marabou tails.
