Re: Basic Box- Trout
I'm right up against the deadline, but I finished my flies up today. They should be in the mail to you posted on the 15th!
Here's a pic that I also posted to another forum on streamers; seems like all I've been tying up for the past 3 months or so are streamers. This pattern is the Milkweed Fly; originally tied with two slips of milkweed seed fiber for the wing; now with white marabou instead.
Hook: Mustad 79580, #14
Thread: Uni 8/0, orange
Tail: Wood duck flank
Body: Uni Stretch floss, orange
Rib: Tinsel, flat silver, extra small
Throat: Dry fly hackle, grizzly
Wing: Marabou tips, white
Head: Uni 8/0, black
Better late than never!
