I'm not being critical, far be it for me. The up-side down emergers like Kimo's in post #6 are very pretty, and his (your) skill is obvious ( I bow to the king) but is there are theory or practical reason how it works? Can some one explain it to me?

Although I like those ... I agree that they're ... not quite right.

 

I think I'd just go for the whites ... then "sharpie" a black pupil into the middle.

Went down south, and found a few bass ready to try this one out.

We got a pot scrubber for Christmas, and the material it was made from look promising, so I got some and made a few shad flies and a Schimmino out of it.

The material used is a closely guarded secret, and can only be found at Walmart and most other crafty yarn stores.

That's blasphemy to take a sharpie to deer hair. 😊

An old B.C. stillwater pattern (not sure if it came before/after the Carey Special, with which it shares some DNA); added an aftershaft thorax. First chance I've taken to use the rump patch I dyed in the ongoing search for picric.

hook - Dai Riki 730 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 light olive
tail - pheasant rump dyed light olive (1Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water)
rib - small wire gold
abdomen - pheasant rump dyed light olive (twisted)
thorax - pheasant aftershaft dyed light olive
hackle - pheasant rump dyed light olive

Mark, I believe they are Tarcher style nymphs. The reasoning as far as I've been able to ascertain is that tying them in that style gives the fly "implied" movement. It makes the fly seem to wriggle or swim even though it's tied on a stationary hook. And yes, Kimo is an artist at the bench, as well as a really nice guy.
