Thanks Ard and larry
The new ties I think have too big a body with the chenille and look out of proportion the golden pheasant and jc make it too me its not right with out it the parsons and the split partridge are my favorites so far.

The Bishops blessing (aka silver parsons)

Body- silver

Tied by the tiers of the tackle firm Kilwell (same as the grey ghost), this fly was never as popular as the parsons and was mainly used by harling fishermen, but is said too be a good stream fly

Chris: Another very beautiful streamer pattern! Very nice work indeed!
Today I watched an episode of "Hooked on the Fly" and it was taking place on the South Island of NZ. What I found interesting is that it said the Brown Trout were stocked from Britian in 1867 then in 1878 Lahontan Cutthroat trout were stocked from the Truckee River, CA, then in 1883 Steelhead Rainbow Trout were introduced from Sonoma Creek, CA. then the next 50 years McLeod River Rainbows were stocked. Anyway, I found that history pretty interesting.

Thanks Larry and Ard

Larry we aslo got Chinook salmon and brook char from North America the brook char are in the head waters of some of the rivers I fish but only where they are a few feet wide and in one isolated lake (I plan too get there one day) in the lake they have been caught at 3-6lb!, the salmon run right along the canterbury coast Ive found out about a river that is good for geting them on the fly so I hope to make it there next year (low and gin clear).

I diddnt know there were steelhead or cutthroat over here though There have been trout caught that look like cut throat tho

The only sports fish native too NZ were grayling but they were fished to extinction nearly 100 years ago because there were no restrictions then and they were too easy too catch there were no preditors (of any sort) so they were not easy too spook.

I got a book from the libary about this once its realy quite interesting

Chris: I don't know if it true or not about the steelhead and cutthrouts, that is just what the guy said on the TV program. If you happen to remember what the title of the book was that you read, let me know I would like to read it. This is all very interesting to me.

Body- red
Wing- ginger hackle
Over wing- grey mallard
Throat- ginger

Click the image to open in full size.

This pattern is also tied with a white body and called a woosters silvery, it is a Canterbury pattern for the area where I fish (the rivers that flow into lake Ellesmere mostly the Selwyn river)

there is some more Taupo flies I would like too do but I may never get the materials as they cant be shot and people that breed them dont sell as many skins
