Chris: Nice looking flies! Not a bad problem to have in only catching Browns!
Good luck with the rainbows.

Hi Chris,

I like number one moving fast and number two moving slow in slow current. Nice tying,

Ard

Chris,

Nice wing on fly #1!

I've never thought of using Ringneck Pheasant in place of, for example, a smaller Jungle Cock nail. I like the effect; it's softer and works very well down low near the collar. I've seen barred Wood Duck used that way, but never the pheasant. Very creative tie.

Go get some Rainbows and let us know how those flies work out for you on the water.

Good luck!

Pocono

Thanks all

I will post some pics whether the river is fishable or not (Im doing some hunting in the area and didnt think to check if the river was open or not untill now), it may be full of alpine melt from the report it is still high but who knows in a few weeks as ill be close to the head waters.

That's right, I forgot, it's springtime down there! It is getting colder here, the gravy train is coming to an end.

Beautiful flies.
You've got a rare one having cochybonndhu. That and cree are getting hard to find (or expensive). Do you have a source there?

The cree/honey grizzle I get from my local fly store ($14 nzd for a bag of strung feathers for streamers, wets and lures) not all the feathers are suitable in colour its a bit like a luckey dip.

Nothing for the cochybondhu tho, this was extracted from a rooster I found on a farm
