Alaskan Lady wet fly
I need to state that Pocono ask that this fly be posted, this is in no way meant to be a competing tie or pattern to the very similar fly he has posted.

Easy to see where this pattern has its roots although it is different enough to have its own name. The creeks in the interior are either turbid with silt or tannin so white is an effective choice of fly. This past summer I lost the last of my Alaska Mary Ann flies so I made these. I guess someday I'll post pictures of all the flies I tie in their boxes. there are about a hundred I have never posted here.

Alaskan Lady;

Re: Alaskan Lady wet fly
Thats a real nice looking fly Ard white works well over here when the rivers are up and grey with alpine silt

Re: Alaskan Lady wet fly
nice one Ard

Water around here has been a dark murky tea color lately, spent 3 hours on the river today, tried several different spots that looked promising, but no glory. Maybe I need to go to a lighter colored fly, didn't hit em on the usuals, bucktail, prince, Copper john or scud. Might want to brighten it up next time, maybe with the cloudiness in the water they just are not being seen. thanks for the idea.

Beautiful tie!

What did you use for the body; is that a cream-colored floss?

That's a very nice fly. Please post the other pix. I'd really like to see them. Wets are very beautiful flies. I'm just getting into tying them.
