    I think I have streamer feeevvveeerrr!!!

    Lately I have been experimenting with some patterns (adding my own twist), since my streamer materials are very limited. I wanted to share this one.. I feel like this just came together. I am so excited to fish it this weekend!!!


    My wife had to pull me away so I didnt touch the painted eyes before they were dry.

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    You guys & gals are probably bored with me but here's what I've been doing today.






    Same old stuff but if it ain't broke I don't fix it. Jock O' Dee on size 4 Partridge Bartleet hooks. These will be first in the river tomorrow, Wednesday November 6. I have an even dozen in various sizes in my trout box and every time that I have raised a steelhead for three years in a row, this is the fly that gets their attention.

    I don't know what it is, or what it must look like but even with all the Sculpins and Intruders I've tied this year, the Dee fly will be the one I will fish.

    Tail: 2 matched hackle tips dyed orange
    Body: Rear 2/3 yellow silk, front 1/3 black silk
    Rib: Metallic embossed foil tinsel
    Hackle: Blue Eared Pheasant wound on front 1/3 of body in Dee style
    Collar: 2 turns of fine spotted Guinea hen
    Cheeks: Jungle Cock eyes
    Wing: 2 matched turkey slips set out Dee style

    I've seen better examples but this is my basic pattern for trout and salmon and it will work. The way the wings are set and the general balance of the other materials make these flies ride or plane perfectly when you use them. They just look right in the water, like a little fish might look or close enough many times. Many other flies look fine in the vise but when fished they swing on their side or worse. I don't recall catching fish on a fly that didn't ride properly.

    At any rate I took a picture of one of them just in case they land me a big fish over the next few days.

    I have to try to tie those, Ard. We have no salmon here but a bass could NOT resist that ! It says 'large large-mouth' from one end to the other

    Hi Mike,

    The fly looks like a little gray & brown minnow when it is wet and traveling through the water. Ever since I learned how to make them on Pocono's 'Salmon Fly Tie Along' a few years ago it's about all I use for trout. I should clarify by saying that all we have are rainbow / steelhead trout, so I mean they are deadly steelhead fly also. If I were fishing down east I would still be using this, if it works here it'll work anywhere.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
