    Taupo Tiger (Aka Tiger Ross)

    Hook- 2-8
    Tail- red
    Rib- silver
    Body- yellow
    Wing- badger with good black center
    Throat- Badger
    Cheeks- jungle cock
    Head- red



    This is the second most popular fly that is in use in NZ behind the Parsons Glory even tho both are old ties, the Tiger Ross was first tied by James Ross of Napier in 1930, the reason there is two names is because he got the the name registered as his and the oppisition fly store came up with another name so that they could sell it too. This is said too be a great fly and will take alot of fish.

    The Parsons Glory

    Original tie by Phil Parsons

    Hook- 2-10
    Tag- gold
    Tail- golden pheasant tippits
    Rib- gold
    Body- Yellow mohair or wool
    Wing- well marked honey grizzey (you can use dyed sub but it is not as good)
    Throat- honey grizzey
    Topping- golden pheasant topping
    Cheeks- jungle cock
    Head- Black



    This is the most popular fly and one of the oldest of this style if compared to a fingerling trout it is very similar in colour (with good honey grizzey), In sizes 1/0, #2 it is used as a salmon/Rainbow fly and in the smaller sizes a genral fly #10 being the most popular.

    The tie that is in use today is the same but with the dyed sub for honey grizzey, no tail, topping, or cheeks (if the tail is included it is red or orange) and yellow chenille.

    Hi Chris,

    I like the tie you have up, that's the one I would fish not the new scaled down versions of today. I think I have said this earlier, all of your flies will catch fish here and I would be tying some but at this time I am awash in flies so I will put these on hold. It is great that you have this thread because I can use it for reference when I start tying more streamers.

    Thanks for showing your work,

    Ard

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

    Chris: Three more great looking streamers! You are doing some very nice work, and like Ard i will also be trying out some of your patterns in our local waters, they should be very effective.
