Chris,

Good job on that pattern.

FYI - I received the book today: "Trout Flies of New Zealand", by Keith Draper. The picture plates remind me of what you fine in Ray Bergman's book: "Trout". I see what looks like some of your posted patterns on the Taupo and Rotorua Lures plate (plate #1). A lot of good material/patterns in there!

Thanks for putting me onto it.

Thanks Allan, and Larry

Allan I think that is one of the best books from NZ and cant understand why it is not more popular,another book that has excelent info on NZ hatches is 'Trout stream incets, how to imitate and use them by Norman Marsh' both of these are the best books (very rich in entomoligy sory poor spelling) well my favorites anyway

Larry I plan on sending a copy of the mayfly info for you with the fishing regs I think this will interest you

Yellow Terror

Hook- 2-8
Tag- red wool or mohair
Rib- silver followed bt yellow hackle (both wound through the wing)
Body- yellow mohair or wool
Wing- yellow
Collar- yellow
Head- black

Blondie

Hook 4-8 try to use xlong hooks (I have used a 6x long #4 they are hard too get in NZ but it will be better as the wing wont fowel)
Tail- red hackle soft
Body- silver flat
Wing- blond hair (best if you can get hair from a child it moves better in the water)
Head- Black

The yellow terror is considered as a coloured water fly for Canterbury, and the blondie is best for fish that are chasing white bait and will kill very well most NZ patterns are tied on standard hooks and are a nightmare because the hair binds around the hook.

Too funny, Chris! Are their variants using brown and red human hair?

I'll be that pattern would look good with P-Bear as the wing (one of my favorite materials for hairwinging, due to its natural translucency in the water).

Great patterns - keep them coming!

funny story I took my 3 1/2 year old to get a hair cut yesterday and the hair dresser said has he been cutting his own hair? I had too say no I did it was knotted about this time I thought it wise not too ask that she keep the longer bits aside for flies

I havnt heard of any others but cant see why they wouldnt work
