Playing around with some more little trout flies, just getting a bit more involved. Kind of a mixed-wing Jin inspired kind of thing.

Some obvious flaws, but I'm still working out the kinks and cramps in the fingers!

Probably should have cleaned my nails before taking the photo too! :hihi:

Thanks,

-Bill

You've a very intuitive touch with that bug. There's nothing I don't like about it.

Cast, mend, then hang on!

Thank you all for the comments, my friends!

All my tying is very much influenced by what I've seen here, for Steelhead and Salmon alike, so it's only natural for my little trouters to take on the same feeling.

Then again, a lot of the traditional wet attractor patterns for trout have the same kind of groove to them. Some of my favorites to tie!

Recipe as requested:

Tip, tag- small silver, orange floss
Tail, butt- GP crest, peacock herl
Body- golden stone dubbing with small gold rib
Throat- grizzly with brown partridge tied slightly shorter
Wing- BM over rolled yellow and olive dyed teal, over GP tippet in strands, all brushed out after
Horns- yellow-blue macaw

Thanks again,

-Bill
