I have been swinging trout flies since I was a kid. over that 30 years I have came up with some great patterns and some not so great ones. lets see what you have came up with.
Gary, just love that first fly....simple and effective.Tanner's LBT (little brown trout)(hooked a trout the first time it was ever cast into a river!)
A partridge and ice-dubbed soft hackle (hooked my largest landlock salmon to date on it:
Deep Green Beauty, which has hooked brook, brown and rainbow trout and landlocked and atlantic salmon:
A simple purple and chrome streamer that landlocks and atlantic salmon kelts seem to like (this particular one had been through the wringer with a few kelts):

Hi Gregor,I'm seeing some very nice feather wing streamers posted in this thread.
Not intending to hijack here, but I've always had problems with these wings getting caught in the bend of the hook even when I try to set them high.........nothing more aggravating. As a result, I usually tie my streamers with a hair wing...bucktail , calftail, etc. They don't seem to get caught around the hook as much. Would anyone like to offer me some enlightenment here?
