Im in the process of tying a batch of flies for a fellow fishing the North Assynt lochs in Sutherland. Figured I put up a little SbS.

Funnily (or not), Im on a few Irish lough flies at the moment instead of the Scotch loch flies I had finished.

Green Peter

Hackle: Natural Red (brown)
Rib: Gold
Body: Green Seal
Wing: Pheasant (Ive used Turkey instead)
Front Hackle: Natural Red (brown)

Rib, Body, and Hackle. Not the hackle is forward and the rib back.



Hackle back down the body.



Catch the hackle with the rib then come back up through.





Set the wing, tie in the front hackle, give a few turns and youre done.



This fly needs to be in the box of anyone fishing trout, sea trout or salmon on an Irish lough. Works just dandy in moving water, also.


Clan Chief

Tag: Red and Yellow floss
Body: Black Seal
Rib: Silver
Hackle: Black
Front Hackle: Claret + Black wrapped together or one after the other

Rib, Body, and Hackle. Not the hackle is forward and the rib back.



Hackle back down the body. Catch the hackle with the rib then come back up through (in process here in pic).



Finish with forward hackles.



The lighting is bad in here to see the claret in this. Heres some more:



Can also tie muddler style by subbing the forward black hackle for black deer hair:

These are delicious !!!!!
The Brook trout in my area would devour those :smokin::smokin:
The muddler version is off the charts and I can foresee many hours of releasing trout !!
Thanks for sharing these :)

Thanks, Mike.

Here are a couple other patterns you might like.

Connemara Black



Tail: Golden Pheasant
Body: Black Seal
Rib: Silver
Hackle: Black (just a couple turns)
Throat: Jay
Wing: Mallard


Claret Dabbler



Not the best picture.

Tail: Mallard and claret hackle fibers
Body: Claret seal
Rib: Silver*
Hackle: Claret
Throat: Mallard
Wing: Mallard

*On this one it looks like I did a double rib for more flash which means I did a flat silver rib first, then came back down that with the hackle, then went back up with a silver wire cross rib securing the hackle.


Alexandra



Tail: Red goose
Body: Flat silver
Rib: Silver
Hackle: Black
Wing: Peacock swords
Sides: Red goose


Dark Mackeral



Tail: Golden Pheasant Tippet
Body: Red flat tinsel
Rib: Gold
Hackle: Claret
Wing: Mallard
Front Hackle: Claret Hen


And a batch of Green Peters:





Thats all Ive got.

Those are fantastic !!
I know those patterns, except for the Dark Mackeral ... I like it !!!
That would make a deadly steelhead pattern tied in larger sizes !!

VERY COOL, VERY COOL, VERY COOL!

I love these.

I have only tyed and used the Alexandra. I've been swinging a weighted version for half pounders. The pattern is super fishy in the water.

Thanks for the inspiration. I need to get back on the tying bench.
