I am always looking at new patterns and some really catch my eye. This one did just that and so I tied up a bunch for the Bluegill swap.
It is true that allot of flies out there are more for the Fishermen than the fish, but you do learn what to look for in a fly, like Peacock os always good
Here is a little on the four feather:
Wiese's Four Feathers: One of our best-selling nymphs. I developed the original gray pattern (still the most effective version) to utilize four feathers that work well on other nymphs: lemon wood duck for the tail, natural ostrich herl for the abdomen, peacock herl for the thorax, and natural pheasant tail for the wingcase and legs. Gold or copper Krystal Flash as an "under-wingcase" and legs complete the ensemble. It's an excellent attractor nymph used as a complement to the beadhead Prince, while in smaller sizes it's effective for spookier trout. Available in the original gray, brown, and olive.
Anyway, I tested this pattern and results are outstanding. It is truly a ONE CAST fly.
Today I took it out to try and here is what happened:
It works GREAT on trout, I hope it works equally well on BLUEGILL.
