Trout wet flies

Hey guys, I'm in the process of tying up a bunch of wet flies and classic streamers right now and I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for some nice patterns. I've been tying lots of simple flies (silk thread, a little dub and grouse hackle) Also down-sizing some summer/low water steelhead flies which has been really fun! Any Pattern names, Pictures, or general help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the time,
glen

How about a Thunder and Lightning!?!

Sorry, Glen, I just couldn't resist. As you may have seen, we're all in a bit of a T&L frenzy lately!!

Feel free to PM me and we can talk trout!

Cheers,

-Bill

good stuff guys, keep 'em coming

Both great suggestions. They're going on the weekly list! A variation of the T&L would make an excellent trout fly. The more that I look at it, them more I like it. Mahoney: my first thought is , keep the pattern, shrink it down, use gold/browns and furnace hackles. Brown trout all over that.

Thanks a bunch guys, this is a great start!

There are many different flies, but look at the flies of McPhail under YouTube

For me, the glass is neither half-empty nor half-full, but rather twice as big as it needs to be.

One of my friends uses a black ghost as his trailer on streamer days, and I'm always shocked at how many fish he moves/catches with that fly.

I have a few winged wets (no pictures). I also rely on some "streamers" such as my muddlers, tube bunnies and will also swing a scupzilla through a pool to.

My favorite wet flies for trout are the Silver Invicta, Alexandra, Rogan's Extractor (winged wets) and the Partridge & Orange and Peacock & Brown (soft hackles). For the top fly on a dropper rig, I like either the Muddler Daddy (DEADLY!) or a Claret or Golden Olive Dabbler.

Also, I've found rainbows love small Ally's Shrimps

Rio Grande King

Have you seen the Noll Guide to Trout Flies? Long out of print, but it does provide patterns for wet flies popular around 1950. I routinely fish the Grey Hackle Peacock and Rio Grande King, one of my all-time faves. I'd also put the Coachman on your list.

Thank you so much guys! This is a really good list of flies for me to work on. I'm a huge streamer junkie and while I fish form tiny up to 8" streamers of all sorts for trout, I realize I'm missing something great in my box. The only 'wets' I swing are simple soft hackles, mini steelhead patterns with hair wings and a lot of the time an alexandra. Instead of just tying up another pattern based on what I have to work with, it seemed time to use some of the classic tried and true patterns. I guess I'm about to be in for a whole new world of fishing. Thanks again guys. Time to break in the new little two hander!

I fish either a muddler/sculpin or a 2 or 3 fly rig of simple soft hackles.
