    Gold Ribbed Hares Ear, Vintage Mustad Limerick Size 7. Aint tied a winged wet in a while, and it shows. Wings kicked up becuase i didnt taper the body/build the head to create a flat platform for the wings.


    Some streamer bodies, headed to Gaspe, via NC. Wings to be finished over the next couple days. Patterns are, Black Ghost, Shang's Favorite, Gray Ghost, Footer Special

    A little something i created...Cased caddis using ostrich. Haven't tested it yet but I think it'll work. You saw it here first!

    Nice looking bug. I tied some using ostrich hurl within the past couple of years. They worked well.

    Great minds think alike! what did you use for the case? I went with hare's ear but I like that look better.
    Using the hurl behind the ice dub, I thought it made it look like the caddis was crawling out of the case. Either way it's good to know it'll work like you said!

    I used Superfine Dubbing in Dark Tan and chartreuse hare's ear in front of that, then the natural ostrich. It's almost a dead ringer for the natural i've seen in the spring creeks I fish. They are very slim cases with almost a mottled appearance.

    I've seen this pattern tied both ways, can't remember where I saw it. I've also seen these tied in reverse. Head at the bend of the hook on a 2302 TMC or 1760 Daiichi.

    That fly you tied will put you on some fish, nicely done

    More of my favorites.
    Hope you're not gettin' too sick of seein' them. I tend to obsess over a certain pattern until I find what I'm feelin'. I think it will become my workhorse pattern so I want plenty variations on hand.

    I was trying to determine what these jungle cock wing and hackle style remind me of. I kinda think they look like a deer fly or horse fly pattern. Or those big blow flies that are kinda like a house fly but bigger and uglier. Hopefully they'll look like a Wendy's combo to the trout next season.

    Also a butterfly variation and some other critters.

















    cheers
