    That's BIG fly, what kind of bug wand do you use to cast it? Looks good!

    New hook to try. I like the presentation it gives the head and legs area of the fly. Little more movement it seems.



















    edit: I meant to put the group shot in



    cheers

    My brother in law bought his 11 year old his first fly rod/reel and gear for Christmas so we are taking him this week. Figured he needed to have a few flies to start his fly box. Tied him 6 Rainbow Warriors, 6 Poison Tung's then

    6 hot orange ribbed black RS2 (tail looks funny because I wet it


    6 Hot spot tungsten surveyors


    6 mercury blue tube midges with peacock thorax

    Hi All,

    I hope you'll bear with me here as I make my first attempt at posting a fly to the august body of work displayed in this thread.
    This generic Pond Smelt / Threadfin pattern is our go to fly from early fall through till the end of spring in the larger west slope - low to mid elevation lakes and reservoirs in this region. While we’ve taken just about every species that lives in these waters on it over the years, it’s primarily used for trout, black bass & landlocked salmon.

    During the colder months, we’ll be working it off a Hi-D head and a six weight outfit with a six foot, three stage - ten pound leader to depths just below 20’. As the water warms and the fish start moving back towards the shallows, the line densities we choose will decrease accordingly, until we hit spring, when we’ll be able to go back to full floating or intermediate lines. These flies are generally retrieved with a fast, long erratic cadence - with a few stops and drops, think Stripers, rather than trout and buggers.


    As you can see, I’m more of a bang ‘em out type of tyer.


    Material List.
    Length: 2 ½" overall
    Hook: TMC 9394 ( Sizes 2 - 8 ) shown here in a size 6.
    Thread: Danville 6/0 Grey.
    Weight: 15 turns - .020
    Tail and Body: Ribbon Floss ( 010 - Opal - Metallic )
    Throat: Fluorescent Red Marabou, torn to length.
    Underwing: White Bucktail.
    Laterals: 15 to 20 strands Angel Hair ( Silver Holo, AHH-134 )
    Overwing: Grey Bucktail.
    Dorsal: 6 to 8 strands, Grey Ghost Krystal Flash
    Eyes: Thread sealed with color preserver, Iris background: White Acrylic Paint, Iris: Yellow Acrylic Paint, Pupil: Black Acrylic Paint, sealed with color preserver and top coated with Hard as Nails.


    Should be enough to get me through the week ahead.



    Thanks, TT
