is an access point on the Stillwater River, that is where the name comes from:
RED/ ORANGE PT (BUFFALO JUMP)
HOOK: Daiichi 1560, TMC 3761 , TMC 100 SP BL, #12-#18
THREAD: Uni 8/0 Brown, to secure tail, rib and abdomen
TAIL: Lemon Wooduck
RIB: Wapsi, Copper/Brown wire SM
ABDOMEN: Red Pheasant Tail fibers...then
THREAD: Wapsi 6/0 Fl. Orange
THORAX: Orange Ice Dub 50%., Nat. Squirrel Belly 50%
WING CASE/ LEGS: Rusty Brown Krystal Flash
BEAD: Silver Tungsten, sized to hook
I have been playing around with a number of different tail, abdomen, thorax, collar and bead combinations for these attractor patterns. I am leaning towards using the TMC 100 SP BL hook exclusively, for these guys and have a bunch of Datum glo-brite on order to use for the collars...that stuff is the brightest floss on the market...
Datum Glo Brite Floss - UK
I like to use them as my lead fly in a two fly set up and have had a great deal of success with this pattern...
on the Stillwater River, MT...
