Thanks fellas! These are a little raggy. But they do the job. They're fun to tie and fish.
Yup. #3 AJ 2050.
Agree. the blue heron hooks are larger, but they are pretty.
The bottom right, I call the Redgolden. In bigger sizes I tent the wings using 2 golden pheasant rump feathers and tie over 2 flank feathers about half to two thirds the length.
For size 3s and smaller, I'll just roll and hump a single feather of each and tie one over the other. As I've done on this one.
It has been a lucky pattern for me over the years for salar and steelhead, but mostly because I use it so much!
