Hi,

Are you already tying Woolly Buggers? Lots of color combinations possible. The Hornberg is an easy pattern to tie, do you have a book that lists traditional streamer patterns?

Wooly Buggers are great. Other winter flies that are easy are midge adults. I don't know the name of the pattern but it is as simple as a black tapered thread body and z-lon wings tied in. Put a tail or two or a trailing shuck if you want to get creative. Size 18 or 20 where I live.

Bead head hares ear nymphs and pt nymphs are always productive and easy to tie.

Ya, we are past the wooly bugger stage. Some of the people are farther than others. I think I will try some emerger patterns. We have done copperjohns and pheasant tail nymphs. Good idea with the streamers. Thank you.
