I like that pattern and will tie some up tomorrow, as effective as the buggers are I just hate using them, makes me feel like one of the herd. Thanks for posting Ard.

In Pa. that was the streamer that caught many many fish. Surprised to see it. Great! Browns and Rainbows will hit it too!

Hi Ron,

I've seen a great many of that streamer pattern torn to shreds while fishing the mountains of North Central Pennsylvania. They work here in Alaska as well because we have char that look very similar to the char we know as the Brook Trout back east.

Just over a month and general trout season opens up here. I'll be hitting the Brook Trout streams on that day.

We've got a few Brookies around here, that looks like a good streamer to try. Pink floss....? Ok, I"ll find it somewhere...

No wild brookies here Ard....I only fish some when I go to Austria where they don't get very big....here's a copy of a paper pic taken many years ago....I look younger,don't I? it's a 18"5 brook....the biggest ever caught in the Gerlos Bach...according to Frantz the owner of the lodge...I think I caught it on a little stone nymph on sight....

Hi Nick,

Long time no chat buddy The pink is easy to find but if you don't have a shop local that carries a wide selection you may end up ordering. I can only guess that the fly will work fine without the pink throat section. The thing I never left out were the painted wings. being an old school streamer guy those paint spots were the talisman for me. I was always positive that no one who had fished the creek the day before me had a fly like that. Did it make a difference? I can never be sure but I don't remember ever being skunked when I fished that fly pattern.

My final analysis is that being a successful streamer fisherman isn't weighed by what I catch. It is measured by whether or not I am happy with the fly I tie to the leader. If I have that going for me they only way I don't catch fish is if there are none there.........

For instance on one particular creek during low water conditions I use a scaled down Dee wing Atlantic Salmon fly for trout. In this fly, on that creek and others I have great confidence.

Would a fly without Dee wings work? Would the fly without the two tone body silk and oval tinsel work? Probably so but a large part of this for me has always been thinking that I am doing something different than everyone else. I guess that is something I've always had through life, the thought not that I am so different than other people but that I fish differently. If things end with that being my only claim to individuality I accept it gladly.

Oh, that Jock O' Dee, there were a few fish that day who liked it.

That one filled the bag Life is short, tie them pretty and fish with great confidence.

Cool pattern! Going to have to try tying a few of these. I like and do pretty well with classic streamers for brook trout and brown trout as well.

I've been working on my streamer proportions before I burn up JC nails.

Hi Steve,

Getting wings set proper is perhaps the most difficult on feather wing streamers. Once you have that down you'll be on the way. I love fishing them and I get the thing about not using the JC until you have things figured out. I forgot to mention that they might be why the flies work (wink)

Wings are tough for me, mine always look just a bit off, and Mallard wings on Spey flies? They just fall apart. Had a few work, few.

Have no clue how to do married wings yet.
