Those are some seriously awesome looking flies. Looks like that "ugly stacker" is working wonders.

Sometimes it pays not to over-think things... the first trout fly I ever copied/tied was a stripped down version of the BH pheasant-tail (as sold in Nestor's Fly Shop); bead, scud hook, thread, pheasant-tail body, and fine gold wire rib... ties in less than 5 minutes and still annually out-produces every other nymph in my box. Keeping it stripped down allows it to pull double-duty as a cased caddis larva.

Here are some #16 olives ready for a dunking.

I have no doubt that one is like irresistible to the trout. Those simple ties are sometimes the most effective. Those are excellent ties, well done!

The author, George Daniel, ties what he calls a " frenchie". Like that but with an orange hot spot. See the book Dynamic Nymphing. I like simple, im not as advanced at tying and this is an easy tie. I have some of the ones with orange on them.
