Tanner's LBT (little brown trout)(hooked a trout the first time it was ever cast into a river!)


A partridge and ice-dubbed soft hackle (hooked my largest landlock salmon to date on it:


Deep Green Beauty, which has hooked brook, brown and rainbow trout and landlocked and atlantic salmon:


A simple purple and chrome streamer that landlocks and atlantic salmon kelts seem to like (this particular one had been through the wringer with a few kelts):

two handed trout

Here's a few of the flies I swing for trout. I like larger flies, but will also swing soft hackles and wets.
I also frequently add on an egg pattern. I know some may think it's not "pure" but oh well, it works.
Rod is a no brand single hand 11ft 5 wt, I built into a switch rod. Sage 108m reel, and ambush 6wt line.

Cowildbill,

Always wanted try swinging a little pink worm like you have pictured. What is that tied with? And what's your experience swinging that?

Talking Pink worm

That is tied with trilobal? antron chenile. It's at its best on lake run rainbows in the spring. It will catch fish during the winter, but they tend to be stockers or smallmouth. If I give in to the "I just want to catch a fish" feeling I'll put that on trailed with a soft egg pattern. Stockers can be fun for awhile!
The river I fish in the winter is a tailwater with flows around 70cfps. There's a lot of slow to almost still water, and the state regularly puts in stockers. If I can't get the big fish I want, I will, on occasion slum.

Any chance you could post a clearer pic of the fly? Looks like something I should have in my box!

I agree! It looks like it is a great little crayfish imitation for the lower Madison River!!

Wet Fly Detail

Size 8 Tiemco 7999 , shank has a wrap of lead wire along its full length.2 ginger beer rubber legs per side. I'm not a perfectionist with my ties but they catch fish.

I use a lot of different flies, over the past couple years I've strayed into tubes and God forbid I even use weighted Sculpin patterns. I had given up weighted flies for years but came back, well because I had to in a way........... But, they fly below served for many years first in its original recipe and since 2006 in the adaptation I make now.

All species all the time, Ard's Nine Three;


This is the original version, The Nine Three;

No weight just a regular streamer and I was able to fool trout and salmon for a long time with them.

Sculpin helmets on tubes. What shame we must endure!!

Always admired your take on the Nine-Three, by the way!
