    Experimenting with flash and craft fur, curious how these will fish for trout. 20171121_075901.jpg

    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.

    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'!
    Salmon River_10_9_12 010.jpg

    Recipe:
    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.

    I can't quite tell, is that uv resin over dumbbell eyes or adhesive?
