Re: Zonkers

On another board I am on, a local guy I met was using the zonkers, then tieing in a white hackle. He would then use a red sharpie to give it gills. Pearl flash chenille works great. That's what I...

Re: Matuka Fly

Peregrines,

Re: Great Lakes Steelhead tips

I was up in erie last weekend. Brown or black buggers did the trick. If the water is low, do not be afraid to try something big. I also had some luck on pink sucker spawn. If you are hitting...

Re: Alternative Stonefly Pattern?

I already have some of the dyed feathers and yarn picked out. I thought it would make an interesting alternative to the multi-colored wooly bugger for steelhead. The spring wiggler looks like it...

Alternative Stonefly Pattern?

I'm wondering if anyone has painted the turkey wings for the stonefly nymph different colors, or if they used a colored dubbing instead of the neutral dubbing. I'm considering a black/red combo,...

Re: Spring Fling Tye whatever you want thing

My fly is merely a more aggressive version of the hair's ear nymph. It is something we decided to try out after discussing the "aggression" related to the color red. I figure if they like the red...
