The Carrot Variant, or the "Thought it might work and it did" pattern.

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..
For such a simple fly it is taking me and my 10 thumbs a long time to type this.
Normally I would wait to post this, until you all had them but my reliability decreases as the weather gets less frozen. Good tying, let me know how it works for you.

Phil, this is a just a cool variant, is it something you just came up with or an oldie? It of course reminds me of a royal wulff/coachman without the butt.

Joe, I think a guy could get away with fishing an entire summer with this collection of flies. Of course he'd need more, but I mean this selection. In fact, I'm sure of it. If I were more disciplined I would try something like that. Maybe just for a day...yeah, put only this swap of flies in one small box and stick it in a shirt pocket. Leave everything else behind except some tippet. That would be pretty fun.

Kerry, I like the "big" nature of this smallish fly. Orange, red and green are such great colors because once wet they always become some nice shade of brownish. I'm sure that is why the original British spiders and traditional American soft hackles were orange and green, though there are very few is any bright orange and green bugs. I also like the long 200R style hook for wets, I use a different curved hooks for most emergers and nymphs.

It is an oldie of sorts. Its roots come from the Brown Hackle or Red Tag. A very simple pattern. A red tag, or red quill, herl body and ginger rusty brown hackle tied back. It could be fished wet or dry.

My Dad's favorite fly was the brown hackle. He said he'd taken more trout with the brown hackle over the years. It was his work horse fly along with dark montreal, coachman, parmabelle, professor and those other oldie but goodie patterns popular from the 50's, 60's and 70's.

Dad always had me keep him in brown hackles over the years, so I began to modify it a bit. I found that the contrasting hackle color of dark and white gives a more leg/wing effect. It worked good here in calm ponds, or dead waters in streams and rivers, that are ripe with mosquito, black fly, horse fly, midges, and many others that this patten kinda simulates. I find it a great fly to start with in any new waters. The rib too came later. It just seemed to produce more fish when dressed up a little.
And finally the herl head came last to give a little more definition. I hope it works as good for you as it has for me.

cheers
phil

That sounds like a great idea! I'm doing it.
