Kerry Pitt....Carrot Varient
[IMG]http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o...rotVariant.jpg[/IMG]
Hook: Tiemco 200R #16
Thread: Orange and since there are many shades of orange pick one a little on the dark side.
Rib: Small or xsmall red copper wire, you know the reddish wire not really red per say.
Thorax: Peacock herl
Hackle: Hen pheasant neck, when I tie it on and wrap it I wind it on until the tip of the feather is on the top or dorsal surface of the fly and the right length to incorporate it into the hackle so I do not have to trim it and it gives it a good buggy look. Make sense? Ask if I have confused me....er you.
Body is all the same orange thread. When you get the initial abdomen done with the ribbing, give it a shot of head cement, it adds a little to the attractiveness of the fly. I tend to try and tie the wire rib in, on the underside of the hook and wrap from about 1/3 of the way back from the eye to just down on the bend..

Larry, thanks for hosting this one and for putting in the extra work of copying all these recipes and photos into a single thread. It's great to have them all together like this.

When Joe and I do our "wet swap only" only day on the river it'll be easy to identify whats what! (This is a challenge, Joe. But it might have to wait till real summer time for me)

Thanks guys, it was a lot of fun and best of all I can't wait to try these bad boys out! I've never spent much time fishing wets, but this summer I plan to dedicate a lot more time to learning the art. Popperfly (Keven) loaned me three books on wets by the master Sylvester Nemes that I'm working through to learn all of this various presentation skills on wets.

Same here, Larry. I read Syl's "The Soft Hackle Fly" and "The Tiny Soft Hackle Fly" over the winter and on my few days fishing this spring already put some the knowledge to good use. Caught a bunch of fish swinging a Syl's Midge to rising fish in a hatch and then had quite a few tugs fishing a hare's ear soft hackle after a March Brown hatch was over. It was a lot of fun in both cases. I will definitely be using soft hackles for searching flies this summer. The part I have to get better at is hooking up. I've gotten a lot of sharp tugs on the flies but missed the set, it's a little different than setting to a nymph or rise.
