I like the one with the ostrich herl especially! Edible looking flies there!

Here's a big streamer I threw together recently, with a pen for scale. The head still needs eyes and a marker paintjob, but you get the idea:

And here's a pattern I threw together on a Klinkhammer hook after seeing fish taking emergers the other day. A Griffith's Gnat did the trick that day, but I wanted to match a particular fly that I saw coming off. Hopefully I can get some photos of that particular fly, I didn't recognize it.

Joe, those hydropsyche look awesome, got me wanting to tie something similar! I see that you have the partridge tied in while still on the quill, do you palmer it and then direct it downward with the siliskin or what?

Welcome back AJ, where you been?

Is that big streamer for big browns or something else with bigger teeth?!

Thanks A.J.

From where I left it off in that picture;

-1) I'll bring the thread back up to the tie-in point on the feather, dub on a noodle of natural hare's ear, and then wrap the hare's ear back to the olive dubbing.

-2) Palmer the feather back 2.5 turns, tie it off, and then palmer the thread forward (opposite the feather wrap) through the feather, and back to the front of the hook.

-3) Now I snip off all the soft hackle between the 8 o'clock and 4 o'clock positions.

-4) Then I pull the shell back forward, tie off, and then wrap the mono forward to form the segments.

This is similar to the way Leisenring/Hidy/Hughes tie (or tied) in the soft hackles on their wet fly patterns. It makes for an extremely durable fly. Tying the feather in like a traditional hackle leaves the fly vulnerable to one well-placed trout tooth, and *snip* all your legs are gone.
