Nothing wrong with that, killer fly!
Experimenting with flash and craft fur, curious how these will fish for trout.
No, I'm not missing summer at all...
very nice, @Ian Horning , care to share what you've done? I'm heading to "the Coast" early next month and I'm a needin' to tie a few more flies. Merci'!
The Double PLM:
Two Gamakatsu B10S hooks, size 4... connected with 30lb white fireline, 6 red glass beads.
The back hook: White Rabbit over the back, UV krinkle flash? underneath the rabbit. Body is cactus chenille, ribbed with UV Polar Dub.
The front hook: A repeat of the back hook; with more UV krinkle flash tied in at the head and olive baitfish emulator over the back. This one is weighted with 8ish wraps of .035 Lead Free Wire for a bit of weight to keep it under the surface.
Finished with super glue (the only acceptable adhesive!!) and 3/16" pearlescent eyes. Covered in Loon UV gel. Also usually covered in teeth marks.
The last sentence is so righteous! Thanks./Pat
I don’t tie many articulated flies, but here is one.
I took this one off my blog. I call it the Identity Crisis. Haven't tied any in a while. Steelhead love em'!
Hook : 3407 Mustad Oshaughnesy (or whatever short shank you prefer)
Bead: Medium sized egg color (orange or pink) or purple.
Tail: Vernille (orange, pink)
Body: Estaz chenille (usually black)
Weight: If you want it.
You can think up any color combo you like. I've tried a couple of different ones. This combo (picture above) bangs em!
Steelhead takes down and across but especially broadside swings really piss them of and get a response.
High Carb Minnow from flyfishfood. A weighted and more durable version of their low fat minnow. These guys have some good innovative flies and great videos. I did well on smallmouth this summer with low-fat minnows and expect this one to be at least as good. Going to try these in a few colors.
Really like this one Brian, big eyes, orange belly screams eat me I'm vulnerable.
That one is money Brian
I can't quite tell, is that uv resin over dumbbell eyes or adhesive?
