trout trekker,

I love those and I'm gonna try tying some up. Thank you for the recipe.

Have you tried tying those in a bendback pattern?

You're welcome and thank you Mudbug.

Ive tied larger bendbacks on occasion for the salt and you'll have to take my word for this, my bendback's are not ready for prime time. So Im a long way from miniaturizing them down to a size six. My luck, they'd probably all end up riding upside down.

In these waters, when the need to toss a smaller baitfish pattern back into the willows and brush presents itself, my instincts tend to push me towards an inverted ( lead tape under belly ) Zonker with a Bucktail wing. Something fast, cheap and expendable.

Thanks again, TT

Noreaster inspired me. I took a TMC 200 #18 and gave it a slight Klinkhammer bend. I added some Jungle Cock for the wings. I love this pattern noreaster, thank you for sharing.
I love the Prince Nymph and this is such an awesome variation:

I also did a variation Of the Rainbow Warrior using Peacock Mylar. Olive Pheasant Tail for the tail and Pearl Mylar for wingcase.
I tied these up in #22, but this is a #14 for photo and deep nymphing
