    Madjoni, I love you style! Those are just beautiful. Looks like you have a tinsel tag on the "red head" and I really like the hackle tip tail.

    Thanks Dean
    I did my homework before mr Alan put his SBS about this pattern.And my investigation(I am poor variant of Sherlock Holmes ) lead on to that fly on the left,and there was said that Picket pin is wet fly,with gold but and hackle tips for tails....so,when I saw it I chose to make it like streamer because wet fly like this would be no good for my waters.
    Of-course Alan put me on right track and now i have one new streamer pattern to try on my waters

    Madjoni, Those are both really nice ties! The one on the right is classic. There are lots of ways to tie this pattern; I tie it according to a local tyer, Jerry Bortz.

    The one on the left is interesting. I like flies with red heads; there's something about them that always makes me feel that fish will key in on them. The same is true for me with Dave Whitlock's Red Fox Squirrel Nymph; with the bright orange head. The tinsel tag looks good and almost makes me wonder how this streamer would look with a small gold beadhead on it; balancing out the tag...................??? Could look good with the wing cover herl tapering into the bead....... maybe someone should give it a try.......

    That looks nice, Jimmie! One of the things that I like about this pattern is how the hackle works with the squirrel wing. The herl collar and head look good.

    Hi Everyone,

    I was real active fly fishing back in the early 50's. The Picket Pin was a popular fly and it was considered a Wet Fly. I remembered it a little different than some of the ones that are tied here. I found a picture of one in the 1953 Family Circle Trout Flies. I have a poor picture but you can see how it looks. I had remembered the distinct body separation of the hackles as they were palmered along the fly. Giving the impression of body segments. Also I don't remember hackle on the top of the body. If I remember correctly it was trimmed off the top or pulled down the sides, but I am not sure.

    Here is the recipe.

    Head, Peacock Herl
    Tail, Brown Hackle Barbules
    Ribbing, Spiraled Brown Hackle (Palmer)
    Body, Peacock Herl
    Wing, Grey Squirrel

    Frank,

    Thanks for posting the PP as a wet fly.

    I think, from the picture, that the hackle may have been first folded and then pulled down; salmon fly style. That would give you the clear segmentation that you see in the pic.

    It also looks like it was tied on a long wet fly hook; perhaps 3x/4x, vs. the normal wet fly hook, like a Mustad 3399.

    Pulling the head right up to the eye is also something that I've seen on other PP ties.

    Hmmmm.........I can feel myself gravitating toward my vise.....
