This is pretty amazing, in my opinion. I remember very clearly pages around the number 15 of the fly tying forum. There were lots of swaps going on then. Lots of fl tiers have come and gone and there are the stalwarts; Norm Frechette and Scott P to name a couple. Really, there are too many to name. Thanks to all who have contributed to this particular portion of Washington Fly Fishing. I look every day and have "stolen" many patterns over the years. Keep it up, guys and gals. It makes my day, each day.
Hook - Curved style
Body*- Pink floss with clear vinyl “D” rib over the top. Palmered with white ostrich herl. To add durability to the fly, use a dubbing loop on the ostrich.
Hackle - Hungarian partridge
Head - Peacock herl
* I used clear flat tinsel in lieu of "D" rib and applied a stripe of uv resin on top of the body to secure the ostrich herl
A lil baitfish pattern I saw on J Stockard fly fishing. I didn't have any strong fuzzy fiber so I used SF blend (bleed bronze back). I omitted the peacock over the back. It doesn't seem to last very long.
