We Need a HFFFT...

Hooks, Feathers, and Floss For Trout, that is!

There's already a few fly threads started in the Trout forum and I think we need our own tying section.

Posted this one in my usual haunt (HFF), but I thought my trout brothers would like it too!

Hope you all enjoy,

-Bill

That looks pretty rad. Natural colors, and buggy with a hint of spey with the longer hackles? I might have to try this one soon.

Nice looking fly. Is that a AJ hook?

Funny you should say that, as it started out as a "trout spey".

Those amazing tiers on that "other forum" got me into tying in hand and this was a little practice session. I was only wrapping some thread and the hackle, and was not too thrilled, so I pulled it all back and made a into a tail. Then it took off from there!

I will try my best to give you a pattern as I don't know what to call some of the feathers. All are from a full Ring-Necked Pheasant skin. (RP)

Hook- AJ sz. 7
Tail- RP rump
Rear body- dubbing of choice, with three turns of oval tinsel
Mid-hackle- I guess, it would be a RP flank? If you have a skin, it's the pretty bluish, purplish ones towards the outside.
Front body- dubbing of choice, again three turns of oval tinsel
Throat/collar- bear with me... on each side of the rump, a nice soft hackle, golden in color, with a brownish base.
Wing- ?? Further up the bird, on either side, the golden feathers with a touch of black at the tip. Tied in spoon style then fully fuzzed up and brushed out, along with the rest of the stuff.

Hope that helps!

I can take some pic's to clarify if anyone needs them.

Thanks,

Bill

So not to step on anyone's toes but next you know someone is going to want a classified for trouters...albeit I've been an avid two hander for trout for quite some time and enjoy the new thread

I agree, we do need a separate HFF section for trout. It would make it easier to distinguish patterns from the steelhead/salmon ones.

Good lookin bug!

That would be sweet to get a trout swing tying section! I haven't tied much in the last several months due to being busy with work and family but would love to see more trout bugs for swinging! I enjoy them all from big ugly's to speys and D style scaled down and "bugged" up for trout.

Thats a solid pattern. I tie quite a bit with pheasant rump dyed in various colors. I tie up a conehead muddler and use PR for the hackle.

Nice muddlers Heli!

Maybe we could get this thread put up as a sticky? This way anyone looking for tying ideas can go to one place!

Thanks again,

-Bill

Great flies, and neat coneheads. That's certainly a different take on things. It's awesome to see some other ideas-
