Really nice ties, all of them. I'm inspired! I particularly have been needing to add more mouse and crawfish patterns to the rotation and these have given me some great ideas to try.

CO Trout I love being able to see what they do in the swim tank. I always test swing flies in water right out of the vise but best I can do is pulling them back and forth at different speeds in the bath tub.

Look at the size of this fly in comparison to the trout

They are ravenous
Just started trout spey last weekend. Walked into the local fly shop for an idea on some patterns to fish. He leads me to this huge streamer that's apparently been working well recently. I was shocked to say the least. Had to be 4" long. Anyway, I was glad I brought along some of my steelhead patterns that day. Didn't catch any trout, but it helped me realize a few misconceptions I had. I will be fishing bigger patterns in the Spring from now on.

I'm new to tying and swinging but after checking out some classic steelhead fly books I thought up this as possibly a salmon fry. Being a fry I tied it "smallish" on AJ's from 2-6
Never caught a steelie on it yet but it's been walloped by one or two and seems to catch everything else from src's to browns, rainbows etc.
The body from front to back is peacock herl, hot green floss, charteuse floss and Lagartun flat tinsel for tip and rib. The collar is olive mallard flank with a throat of pearl/white angel hair like stuff I got in a bulk order from China. The wing I tinker with but I either tie it with 2 pairs of furnace hackle or hair with furnace hackle over wing. For cheeks I like using red biots although I mix it up. Oh almost forgot I like to tie in a claret ice dub "gill" or whatever you call it between the herl and collar.
It may look messy dry but it's sleek as silk when wet.

T17......Freaking loving that whole suite of bugs. Outstanding effort. You should share some of those on the Soft Hackle Journal as well. I'm sure Steve would be pleased to see them.

I see you're a shvingger too!

Those look really good, and they definitely pique my curiosity. I am a self-confessed "vampire-shift" angler who prefers to fish under the cover of darkness more than by day, but I'm not brave enough (yet) to try spey casting by night. Do you find that you have more success at night swinging flies than you do during the day? I know this holds true for some of my conventional streamer fishing and fishing with conventional gear, so I'm now quite curious about the possibility of having greater success during the night shift.

This pattern (and it's black equivalent) have been pretty effective this season, especially now that the waters are high and off-colored.
