Taupo Tiger (Aka Tiger Ross)

Hook- 2-8
Tail- red
Rib- silver
Body- yellow
Wing- badger with good black center
Throat- Badger
Cheeks- jungle cock
Head- red

Click the image to open in full size.

This is the second most popular fly that is in use in NZ behind the Parsons Glory even tho both are old ties, the Tiger Ross was first tied by James Ross of Napier in 1930, the reason there is two names is because he got the the name registered as his and the oppisition fly store came up with another name so that they could sell it too. This is said too be a great fly and will take alot of fish.

The Parsons Glory

Original tie by Phil Parsons

Hook- 2-10
Tag- gold
Tail- golden pheasant tippits
Rib- gold
Body- Yellow mohair or wool
Wing- well marked honey grizzey (you can use dyed sub but it is not as good)
Throat- honey grizzey
Topping- golden pheasant topping
Cheeks- jungle cock
Head- Black

Click the image to open in full size.

This is the most popular fly and one of the oldest of this style if compared to a fingerling trout it is very similar in colour (with good honey grizzey), In sizes 1/0, #2 it is used as a salmon/Rainbow fly and in the smaller sizes a genral fly #10 being the most popular.

The tie that is in use today is the same but with the dyed sub for honey grizzey, no tail, topping, or cheeks (if the tail is included it is red or orange) and yellow chenille.

Hi Chris,

I like the tie you have up, that's the one I would fish not the new scaled down versions of today. I think I have said this earlier, all of your flies will catch fish here and I would be tying some but at this time I am awash in flies so I will put these on hold. It is great that you have this thread because I can use it for reference when I start tying more streamers.

Thanks for showing your work,

Ard

Chris: Three more great looking streamers! You are doing some very nice work, and like Ard i will also be trying out some of your patterns in our local waters, they should be very effective.
