That's a great looking pattern- I was recently given several packs of 1990's(?) rubber legs from a friend who never quite develop as a tier.  I think I'll tie a couple in that style.  They might be "trout getters" around here in the summer!

This is really a "Gill" getter, tied some last year and it was "lights out" on the water. Tying a few more for this year and for some friend's boxes. Simple but effective.

A step back to the original Brown Forked-Tail nymph, precursor to the Prince; found it on Karsten Neben’s site.  Added a thorax of loop-dubbed aftershaft.

hook - WFC Model 6 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
underbody - non tox .025 
rib - oval tinsel gold 
tail - biots brown
abdomen - ostrich herl brown
body - stripped quill black 
thorax - aftershaft dyed brown (loop dubbed)
wing - biots white
hackle - hen speckled brown

Regards,
Scott

Dang, some nice ties the past few days,

@DFoster, that emerger is a beaut!

 

Dirty Lil' Dorothy, variant of the original by Mark Libertone

IMG-20210216-193005d.jpg

Hook: #12, GCO

Thread: Orange silk, size A

Thorax: Pale Yellow Rabbit Dubbing

Hackle: Pale Ginger hen (hence the 'Dirty", a tad darker than the original)

Thorax should start sooner and be a tad thicker at the throat, me thinks.

The way you're tying these it looks like YOU used to be Mark's neighbor!  Another nice tie my friend!

Very kind of you, Kim, thanks.  I find myself gravitating toward this style of wet fly/flymph of late, and as I do, I come across his ties more and more.  I'm thankful to those who keep his online legacy alive.

Been playing around trying to come up with a tube fly crawdad pattern using what materials I have on hand.

Winter Stonefly (Roos variation)

50947778327_d3d78a8681_c.jpg

Playing around with a black caddis idea (hence the Goddard-like wing shape) and realized it’d make a passable winter stonefly.  May have to integrate an indicator of some kind since I won’t see this past 15’.


hook - WFC Model 3 #16
thread - Danville 6/0 black
body - stripped quill black
wing - Congo Hair charcoal
hackle - black

Regards,
Scott

Panfish killer!
