Default Just doing some tying;

Hi evryone,

If you have been watching the 'Wet Fly & Streamer Tie Along' thread you will see where this pattern came from. The Partridge & Orange wet fly can easily be turned into many different style of fly. The wet pictured below is using blue eared pheasant for the hackle instead of partridge flank and I added a mallard wing. It is kinda hard to get a bronze mallard wing in the small sizes but this will work.

This is easy to tie and I'm sure it'll catch trout The fly is tied on a Mustad 80050BR in size #8

Hope you like that one,

Ard

Hi Larry,

Thanks for the Photo Shop work and yeah these look like winners. The best part is they are quick to make. I have 4 in my small fly box now and am going to do some color shifts. I'm thinking claret with a dyed mallard wing for small creeks with clear flows

Thank you Kelly, I will................

Thanks Jimmie,

I got in the habit of wrapping feathers first then covering the quill with either flat or oval tinsel. This hides the quill from your eye and helps to keep it from those little teeth. On the bigger flies I cover the quill with foil tinsels and then counter wrap with fine wire. That way even if a feather gets cut the fly does not come undone.

Nicely tied sir. However, *davy wotton close your ears*, I haven't found wet fly fishing to be all that interesting or productive. I think wet flies look amazing, but I am not really all that familiar with them, their techniques, etc. I'll have to pick up Davy's wet fly ways and maybe turn my thoughts around on the subject

Hi There,

You'll have to trust me on this; wet fly fishing is usually the most productive way to catch many species of fish. The only times that I used dry flies over the past many years were those occurrences when there was too much surface activity to ignore. Don't read this wrong, I love dry fly fishing but streamers and wets have been the bedrock for a long time.

Here in Alaska there are not too many opportunities for dry fly fishing so the streamer skills I brought with me have proven to be invaluable for the salmon, char, and trout that I fish for. You may enjoy wet flies, so I would suggest looking into information on their construction and fishing techniques.

Ard
