Any hints on the materials for the next few flies?

J-P's Batistou Special is a fly that you definitely want in your box!

This little number, which looks something like an ant pattern to me, sits in the water just right and the fish love it. I lost 3 of these beauties in a row to trees; fishing a real bushwhacking small stream one day with JP. He was so determined not to loose the last one that he scaled the red canyon wall just to pick it out of the tree that I'd cast it into.

This fly also picked up the "last fish of the day" on our second day fishing last year.

No kidding, you definitely want this fly! Looks easy to tie, grabs fish - what more can you ask for?!

J-P, What brand of foam are you using on the body of the BS? Is it round or just a square strip cut from a larger sheet?

Allan it's a square strip...don't ask me why it gets round when you tie it
Next time you come I'll tie more BS ....rockclimbing with felt wading boots is a bit risky

How thick is the square stock? I'm guessing somewhere between 1/8" and 1/4", based on the photo, but I haven't yet developed a good eye for assessing materials.

I heard somewhere in my readings about dry fly fishing that lady-bugs will sometimes work as a food item, so I decided to try tying one following the Batistou Special recipe, I think it came out better shape-wise than my first one, and also doesn't have the z-lon fiber overdone. I'm wondering if the red will also work as a trigger color.

Well, I'll make sure to tie more in black for sure! Still hoping to make it your way for some fishing this summer, but we'll see where the winds take me.

Last year I went fishing with my friend Jan.When we were on the water he took a funny fly out of his box and told me it was THE fly to use on this trout stream.And he was right.Back home I tied some from what I remembered.
Materials:hook size 14 or 16,black thread 6/0,dark olive hareflash,furnace rooster hackle,elk hair,orange or white synthetic fibers.
Make the boddy with the hareflash dubbing.

You can of course change the color of the dubbing ,hackle and signal...you can also tie a parachute version of this pattern.
