So there are some really beautiful flies posted in this thread. It is kind of intimidating. There are some artists and amazingly skilled tyers in this community. I do not place myself among them. Quite the opposite. I've decided to post because I'm excited about fishing these flies next week. Photos may not be the best, but you don't need to see the details...

First, the Egg Sucking Leech AKA "The Magic Fly". Two samples, one that landed 20+ trout over 20" in a day and the second what I tied up for the trip this year. The used one had sat at the bottom of the fly box unused since my first trip to Alaska in 1993. We fished a few then, but I discovered steelhead and had a really cool selection of modern flies that should catch big trout better. I wasn't catching much on those "fancy" flies and was a bit hopeless so tied on the ESL. My fishing partner and I now call that the "Epic Day" and the ESL the "Magic Fly". We had 2 days to fish an only 2 black ESLs between us. That won't happen this year. They may not be pretty, but my fly shop critique crew say they should fish. (the funky fly in the box was one where the shop crew was showing me how to do something. I promised to fish it on this trip)



Second, a fly my local shop owner encouraged me to tie. He called it the "Schlappy Leech". I tied up a couple and think they should fish quite well. I'm excited to try.

Barbless

Sorry about the late reply AJS Reels....Been Fishin up in the Lake Country.I have been using a few varieties of barbless hooks for a few years now, I must admit i do lose the ocassional fish to the barbless hooks.....thats my excuse anyway... i guesss it would be somewhere in the order of 1 in 20 fish, I can live with that. The release is a whole lot easier though and most barbless i have used tend to be like needles and set very well, and do very little damage to the fish compared to barbed imho.
Had a trip to New Brunswick Canada chasing Atlantics in April this year and fished barbless for them (law there,catch and release)and missed very few of those due to the barbless hooks. landed 24 in four days

regards

Bevin

Ok Ok It is My Turn-My go to trout fly

Here is what I call Burn all Day

I will tie this on in the am and only change it when the thing is chewed to p, you all have been so kind to share some wonderful patterns now it os my turn. Give it a go I am sure you will be happy with the results... Burn sands for the burnt orange hackle in the collar.


I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach
