A few changes to Dave Wiltshire's version; could have used a bit heavier hackle. Irish lough muddlers rock.

thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - golden pheasant tippet dyed red
rib - small wire silver
body - Ice Dub peacock black
hackle - hen black

As always, very nice ties above.  I shall be adding some Weed Seeds and Teachers to my box.  Norm, I enjoy reading the short histories of the flies, thanks for including them.

Hex-Trude-800.jpg

 

Hex Trude

 

Hook - Mustad #9671 or #9672 Size: 6
Thread - Tan
Tail - 8-10 Moose mane or body hairs
Body - Pale yellow or tan poly yarn or dubbing
Wing - White calf tail, tied trude style
Hackle - Grizzly & brown, mixed
 
 
Tying Tips: Standard techniques
 
Fishing Tips: Developed for the Hexagenia hatch. This fly works really well in especially in very light or extremely heavy hatches. The fly floats well and is easily seen. When fishing heavy hatches try casting upstream and to the right or lift of the trout, and then twitch the fly into his window. On many occasions I have been able to coax large trout into striking this pattern long after all feeding has stopped.
 
Historical Note: Jeff Bonin developed this pattern around 1987. It’s a very simple yet durable pattern. According to Jeff, “it’s my top Hex pattern.” Jeff is the owner of ‘Steelhead Connection Custom Flies,’ located in North Muskegon, Michigan.

American-Woolly-800.jpg

 

American Woolly

Hook - Mustad #94831 Size: 6 
Thread - Black
Body - Black Hackle, Brown Hackle, Black Hackle, palmered. Tied as tight and heavy as possible. Trim to resemble a woolly worm caterpillar. Trim it flat or tapered on the ends. 

Tying Tips: Easy to tie. Be generous with the head cement.

Fishing Tips: This is a great pattern for late fall. Bump it off a log or stone. Cast it in near the shore or in any pocket waters. Big trout love it ! Can also be used
for pan fish tied in smaller sizes or for bass in larger sizes. Trim the bottom of the hackle for a lower profile.

Historical Note: For years I’ve found these Woolly Worms (Pyrrharctia isabella) along the banks of American rivers. My fascination with caterpillars lead me to develop a high floating dry fly that closely resembles the ‘Woolly’ and that the fish just can’t refuse.

A bit monochromatic but this was more an exercise in dyeing. Looking for the right mix for fiery brown - used the Rit formula for Autumn Maple and although it may be a bit off, it gave me a killer rust. The deer hair should look interesting with orange bodied muddlers.

hook – WFC Model 6 #6
thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
tail - bleached pheasant tail dyed rust (Autumn Maple - 2Tsp Rit Sunshine Orange, 1/4 Tsp Rit Tan, 1/4 Tsp Rit Purple/4 cups water)

hackle - grizzly dyed rust
collar - chukar dyed rust
head - deer hair dyed rust

Since I'm sitting in my kitchen watching a floor being installed in the other half of my house I figured I do some advance master level tying along with some sophisticated picture taking. Don't really need to carry much more then thesefor trout.

Loving the stuff this month. Norm, I'm really enjoying the commentary with your flies. Are the quotes your words or are they from the research you did about the fly?

 

This one for instance; "For years I’ve found these Woolly Worms (Pyrrharctia isabella) along the banks of American rivers. My fascination with caterpillars lead me to develop a high floating dry fly that closely resembles the ‘Woolly’ and that the fish just can’t refuse."

 

I like them very much.
