    Do you mean "red drum," as in the fish, or do you mean "redrum," from
    The Shining
    ?

    Redrum as in the shining. Supposed to be a Redrum Nymph. Was designed and first tied by Eddie George, And yes it is supposed to be a killer for trout.

    possumsniper-

    Red drum are also called redfish, and if you do a google on "redfish flies" you'll probably come up with a ton of different patterns. Here's a site that should give you plenty of ideas:
    Top Redfish Flies

    A good selection of redfish flies would include some stuff that's heavily weighted for fishing deeper water when fish are mudding in water 3' or more deep as well as some lightly weighted stuff for fishing shallow water when they're tailing in water that may be only a few inches deep.

    good luck,

    Oops!! I see I'm late to the party--- sorry not familiar with the redrum nymph

    I know all that, I live on the Bama Gulf Coast and catch tons of Redfish.LOL
    This is supposed to be a killer fly that is used in the Smoky Mountains for trout.

    I think I finally found one. Anyone care to guess what type of fly might be best to match?

    that looks to me like a salmon/steelhead fly. probably not something you' want to use for rainbows in the smoky mtns. just a thought

    Maybe this is what you're looking for. Looks like a winner to me

    Here's another great trout fly for the Smokey Mtns. In fact the Tellico Nymph was developed in that area and then became popular everywhere. Don't know why, but I really like tying this one. Maybe because there are so many variations.
    Hope this link works.
