  1. Default The four feather shines!

    I am always looking at new patterns and some really catch my eye. This one did just that and so I tied up a bunch for the Bluegill swap.

    It is true that allot of flies out there are more for the Fishermen than the fish, but you do learn what to look for in a fly, like Peacock os always good

    Here is a little on the four feather:

    Wiese's Four Feathers: One of our best-selling nymphs. I developed the original gray pattern (still the most effective version) to utilize four feathers that work well on other nymphs: lemon wood duck for the tail, natural ostrich herl for the abdomen, peacock herl for the thorax, and natural pheasant tail for the wingcase and legs. Gold or copper Krystal Flash as an "under-wingcase" and legs complete the ensemble. It's an excellent attractor nymph used as a complement to the beadhead Prince, while in smaller sizes it's effective for spookier trout. Available in the original gray, brown, and olive.


    Anyway, I tested this pattern and results are outstanding. It is truly a ONE CAST fly.

    Today I took it out to try and here is what happened:




    It works GREAT on trout, I hope it works equally well on BLUEGILL.

    That is a cool looking fly, but that fish looks like he has taken a heavy dose of radiation and then been on Chemo for six weeks! LOL!

    sorry if this is just dumb but what kind of fish is that? Is it an albino rainbow? It looks alot like a rianbow and seems to have some faint coloring.

    I took a quick glimpse of the fish, and thought it was a carp with a strange
    mouth .

    Where's a pic of the fly, Joni? Sounds like a good pattern!

    It is an Albino Trout...right down to the red eyes although this one might have been blind in the eye that is showing

    They are all over some of the lakes in the Uinta's but I have never seen one this big.


    Here is a small one from the Uinta's with thoooosssssseee eyes.
