    Glad you liked the fly. Do you mean the fly is old, or I am? ROTFL.

    You can substatute the wood cock for quail they are fairly similar

    Hi Kelkay nice Flies,two of my favourite flies for night Fishing.
    It's a bit fiddly tying the Mrs Simpson & the Lords Killer first up,with the church window feathers being so small you have to split the bodies into 2 or 3 parts.
    I tie my Mrs Simpsons with a Black Furr Tail,the Hammil's with a darker feather.
    Cheers Brian.

    I'm with Chris here. Wonderful what you find when you're not looking. Bit back found TWO full boxes of flies I purchased in NZ years back for fishing in that beautiful Country. (Guys, even if you have to skip the rod ... you won't ... MAKE THE TRIP!! Two Islands, and they're worlds apart as to what you'll find/see.)

    Flies are from the late '90's and patterns I've seen nowhere else. Bits of Bunny, what the hell is that feather?, etc.

    Chris, if you want to do a 'Labor of Love' post photos of the 'local patterns.' Many are unique to the Islands.

    Chris gives you a tiny taste here: Classic New Zealand Streamers In post #78 you have a close cousin to one I've done (a 'Fred Pattern') that 'won' a small contest years back. The body was black chenille/oval or holographing tins. for a rib, with 'side wings' of red died Gold Pheasant feathers. All sorts of ways you can alter the colours with this, but 'it' makes for a striking fly (pun intended). I called it "The Body Bag." (No bad pun intended.)

    I would love to see what you have in those boxes. Thanks for the comments. I think Chris outdid himself. Thanks for that link. I have explored it a while back. I have been doing spring yard work, which has to be done now. (before it gets too hot) I would rather be tying a bunch of flies. Seeing this thread makes me want to hit the tying bench for sure. :-)

    Fred I do plan on adding the local patterns, as I get the materials required for each pattern

    Chris

    the contents of that box sound interesting

    Hi all.
    We also have a few local patterns some are variants,however like others I still like the traditional flies as they cover a wide range & you can always catch fish on them,I will show them when I tie them.
    Cheers

    I omitted that I use Hungarian Partridge Pheasant Feathers in the Hamill's Killer died Olive Green,even though I have tied them with Olive Green Wood Duck Breast Feathers.
