    Default Big Trout Streamer Swap, Fall 2011

    Some great patterns were submitted for this swap, and no doubt we'll have some bruisers caught on these patterns in the coming months.

    Thanks to all that participated in this one!

    Shannon (Stimulator2) posted an excellent, detailed description of the recipe and tying process on this page: Big Streamers for Trout Swap

    Brown Sculpin
    by Stimulator2

    Hook: Mustad 9675 size 6
    10 wraps .030 lead
    Body: Golden Olive Dubbing
    Rib: Flat Gold Tinsel
    Wing: Cree Neck Hackle
    Collar: Red yarn or Red dubbing
    Fins: 2 Grouse Wing Feathers
    Head: Whitetail Deer Body Hair(spun)
    Markings: Black Prism Marker

    Bruised Angus
    (This is just a variation of Eric Leiser's "Black Angus". His pattern is tied with all black materials.)
    by peregrines

    Hook: 4xl streamer size 4
    Thread: Black 6/0, switching to Black Flat Waxed Nylon for spinning deer hair head. Flat Waxed Nylon is stronger for applying more torque when spinning deer hair
    Weight: Approximately 20 turns of .025” Non Toxic lead wire substitute on middle 1/3 of hook shank
    Tail: 4 wine colored strung saddle feathers (2 on each side) and 2 strands (1 on each side) of Holographic Flashabou tied in by middle to form 2 strips of flash on each side.
    Underbody: One strand of black 3 strand Acrylic yarn wrapped over rear 2/3 of hook shank, including over non-toxic wire wraps. Leave front 1/3 of hook shank bare wire. The yarn helps cover the wire wraps used to weight the fly and helps provide good seating for the stem of the marabou as it is wrapped. ) The original "Black Angus" used black floss, which is a bit fussier to wrap smoothly. The marabou wraps cover the body anyway, so the yarn or floss won't be very visible anyway.
    Body: Work thread rearward over yarn body and tie in a black marabou plume by the tip. Wrap marabou plume forward around hook. Tie in 1 or 2 more marabou plumes as necessary to cover yarn on rear 2/3 of hook shank.
    Throat: Purple marabou plume tied in as throat. After tying in throat, tie off 6/0 thread and start Flat Waxed thread.
    Collar and head: Black dyed deer belly hair. Apply in several clumps over front 1/3 of hook shank, tie off thread and trim hair to bullet shape.

    Got my flies yesterday and they all look awesome.
    Hopefully this weekend i'll get out to throw a couple of them.

    Thanks to everyone for participating and to Mark for hosting the swap.
    Hope you all catch fish with the flies from the swap and i look forward to seeing some pictures in the near future.

    The recipe for the pattern I tied (Red Rocket) is on page 8 of the original forum

    I've recently tied them in black and orange and used bigger eyes than the flies i sent in for the swap. The possibilities for color combinations here are endless if anyone wants to have a go at tying some of their own.
    They look much better with the bigger eyes, and the flies in the pic below are tied on single hooks linked to an articulated shank. I used these on special regulation waters where only one hook point is allowed.

    That black one screams night time trout, and that brown and olive and brown one mixed would be the perfect thing for the sculpins i've seen here at taney, and the white river system.

    Love it. Just a great swap, I feel under dressed! Honestly, I entered this one because I am not much of a streamer fisherman or tier, though I enjoy making them when I do.

    There truly is not a bad one in the bunch here. Everyone of these flies is going to catch fish or get lost trying! I will put them all to the test.

    What I like most about this bunch is the sheer variety - big and crazy (Circus Peanut), big and dark, big and light (the fly not pictured, Brent's Zoo Coug), articulated, flashy, traditional (love that Bucktail, Allen), and representational (great little sculpin, Shannon, I know exactly where I am going to fish that). A streamer for every occasion!
