Everyones flies are epic thank you !

Gonna post a couple of my.......... Flures ?
Red Dred Plane - It's ugly I know but dogs don't know it's not bacon.Reminds me of snoopy on top his dog house gunnin em down. Anywhere crayfish exist this flure is deadly especially for steelhead.
Spearch - Spey Perch fly. Anywhere warm water fish mingle with trout or steel its' so good.
Tied with pheasant and ducks hunted outta the back forty. I have been inspired here at the Pages to start using more traditional ingredients.That is of course not the case with these patterns. But I have always admired the classics like Lady Caroline, Durham Ranger etc. I imagine I would be booted right off a Scottish River for fishing anything I tie. Possibly arrested.

They'd probably just tie a large rock around your neck and push you in!

Nothing wrong with good working, effective flies (flures, rather) that you've come up with, MT. I like them both.

Hey, I've seen vintage Jock Scott's with props on them, so you're in good company. Often wondered of the purpose- extra flash, turbulence to add movement, vibration to stimulate the lateral line? A winning combination?

Have you found trout receptive to perch patterns? I came up with a hackle wing Yellow Perch streamer that Smallmouth love around here. Never thought to try it on trout.

Thanks,

-Bill

Yes Bill

big browns and some bows too,on the lower sometimes warmer water habitat stretches on these famous Mt rivers, mingle with the perch. Or river mouth areas around the many lakes and reservoirs.They love yellow and brown stuff that is real gaudy so I thought I would try a pheasant tail feather wing thing for a little more classic look. Banana yellow clousers with black stripes yellow eyes....real deadly too. On real bad weather days or high winds the predators get a little more gutsy. They don't short strike a perch fly, they seem to know it's gotta slip down head first to avoid the spines. Hah! Terrible tricks predators play on each other..........

Hey MT...

They love brown and yellow here too. I tie a buck-tail streamer, very similar to a Black-nosed Dace, just subbing a gold body instead of silver, and yellow instead of white in the wing. Works quite well.

Here's my Yellow Perch that I tie for Smallmouth. I will be swinging some for trout now however.

Thanks,

-Bill

Another one for you MT...

Here's the buck-tail streamer I mentioned above. Very effective around here, even in it's most simplest form.

You can add some flash in the wing, top it off with a few strips of peacock herl, add a tail or throat for some more contrast. A fun pattern to play with.

Hope you enjoy,

-Bill

Based on the above

Bill I got one for you I will spin up that is very popular in the Atlantic Provinces not that far away

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

I can't wait to swing that one, Wayne! Great tie.

You have me stumped on what pattern it is, though.

Thanks again,

-Bill

Gladly, that does not even come anywhere close to reminding me of a Mickey!

I'm probably the only living soul on this planet that has never caught anything on that damned fly! Not for lack of trying, and still tie some up now and again. Just no luck with it!

Your tie, however- gonna get me some with that one!!!

Thanks bud,

-Bill

Why not another skater? I'll fish this one on the tailwaters of E. Tennessee during some of the enormous caddis hatches we see.
