    Here's one that's a little "hairier and fatter" J-P.

    I doubled up on the beads, but used metal for both; just in case I happen to throw it up against a rock - again!

    About 15 years ago we went to a reservoir where the trout had been caught and released so many times that they were nearly impossible to catch...I thought I had to find something new and unusual...that's how the Ugly Green was born.It's very easy to tie and the great advantage of this fly is that it can be used on the surface as an emerger or under the water as a wet nymph or buzzer with an intermediate or sinking line.That IS a great fly
    Materials:Crystal Hair pearl,olive antron dubbing,black or dark brown hare flash,black 6/0 thread.
    First fix two pieces of crystal hair a long one and a short one you will fold to make a double tail.

    Then make the body with the olive antron.

    Turn the long crystal hair piece.

    Make two wings or legs??on each side.

    Make the thorax with the hare flash and finish the head...that's all.

    Happy New Year, J-P!

    Nice SBS on the Ugly Green!

    Here's a New Year's day shot at this pattern; one as you have it in olive green, with Anton dubbing:




    And one in a lighter color; dubbed with Seal-Ex and using a gold crystal flash:



    I also did a lighter one dubbed with Hi-Vis cream 36 and Seal-Ex thorax, but I didn't like the way that it came out. Hi-Vis is no fun to dub!

    Happy new year again Allan
    no bad shots on new year's day...considering the "heavy" meals and...drinks
    I tied a beige antron variant but used pardo fibers for the tail and legs/wings...good but less productive than the green one.

    JP: Thanks for posting the ugly green SBS. I had forgotten that I wanted that fly on my list to tie this winter, I already know how effective it is, but had lost the one you sent me a couple years back.

    The Batistou Special.
    Materials:black foam,black thread 6/0,black rooster hackle,white ,orange or fluo green polypropylene.hook size 14.
    This fly was created by my friend Jean-Baptiste (Batsitou) to fish big chub but we also caught browns and rainbows with it.Allan (Pocono) tested it when he fished with me last year and really liked it.He tied some when he was back in the US and could check how effective it is on trout.
    Cut a little strip of foam and fix it onthe hook.

    Turn the thread ,stop around two third of the hook length...tie the foam again.

    Put the white fibers then the hackle.

    Turn the hackle and cut the"wing"

    Make the head...cut the foam....that's all

    Sometimes I tie it starting from the eye of the hook...

    So I've made a shopping list of materials for the first few flies of the SBS, so that when I'm at the Sommerset, NJ show in a couple of weeks, I can purchase materials, and try to catch-up. With the possible exception of multiple colors of rooster hackles, it doen't look like anything that will break the bank!

    Any hints on the materials for the next few flies?
