Golden Olive Deer Tail Bumble







Playing around with a couple new dye formulas; the golden olive, a lot more diluted than I’m used to, took a long time to dye but produced a nice color.

hook – WFC Model 6 #8
thread - UTC 70 woodduck
tail - golden pheasant crest
rib - small wire gold
body - dubbing golden olive
hackle - golden olive (1 Tbs Rit Lemon Yellow, 1/4 Tsp Rit Sunshine Orange/1 gallon water)
wing - deer hair dyed golden olive
front hackle - hen grizzly dyed blue green (1 Tbs Rit Aquamarine, 1/8 Tsp Rit Kelly Green/1 cup water)


Regards,
Scott

Opps- mistakenly first attached this fly to Norm's tinsel thread.

From the vise of Dick Winter, Klamath Falls, Oregon, his Extended body Yellow Drake

Dick tied many different flies for the Big Yellow May (Heptagenia limbata). This version is specifically for the tumbly water.

From the vise of Poul Jorgensen, Roscoe, New York. Poly Caddis Emerger

Hook: Pictured is a size 14
Thread: Black
Body and wing: Brown poly yarn. That’s it.

Jorgensen (who was known for his exacting, realistic ties) highly recommended this ridiculously simple pattern. Maybe he was just cleaning out his caddis box when he gave it to me in Basalt.

Some glammed up clousers for Mexico. I've never considered gray bucktail before but I'm glad I got it, gray gives it some depth I think.

Love those clousers. I did the same with a gray bucktail...never had used it before until recently (actually have been toying around with a lot of other colors), but really like that extra subtle depth is gives some of my flies.
