Hope you'll soon post a video of a Brown trout smolt to accompany this one.Been awhile since Ive been on here to share what I have been tying! We have gotten many tying tutorial requests for patterns we use personally and finally put together one for the rainbow smolt pattern I use here in Western Washington for trout and bass! I also recently took this pattern to Montana and had a ton of success! I hope if you like it, it brings you the same success! View attachment 256798
I really dig the red bead on your muddlers (soft hackles as well) - funny how muddlers are coming full circle in my fly box. The muddler was one of the first flies I ever tied and fished consistently and then forgot about.
Pat,Continuing to experiment with ugly clipped deer hair "streamers" - olive pine squirrel zonker for the tail, UV dyed olive polar chenille and olive deer hair. I'm using these with my full sink lines for Basin trout. I'd like to believe these flies might work for you lucky
fartsladies and gentlemen living near SRC water.
