Dead drifted and lifted in front of sighted fish these can be quite deadly.  I generally tie them on #8 - #10's.  Easy ties and easy to adjust to your color scheme.  I fish these single and unweighted on a switch rod or use a weighted fly a little higher up the leader to get them down if needed.

They look good. They would all work well on seatrout here.

great ties as always Carl the second from the last looks like it would be great in the fall like a flesh fly

It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Thanks guys.

 

Piker, I was curious if they might work for sea trout.

Especially the blue one and I like the third one down best. I'll pinch the idea and hopefully post some fishy pics with one. I'm going to have to remember my camera this year.

The third one down I call "The Gamebird".  English grouse hackle, french partridge (Chukar) tail, gold rib and hare dubbing.  Very simple.
