Hey all... finally been fishing more than tying. Still no chrome for me, but lots of trout while trying, and most of them on this pattern. I change flies a lot, but I kept tying this one back on.

This pattern i never showed finished because it went straight fishing, but here it is during and after. this thing looks amazing in the water. pulses like crazy, and the macaw just pops color. size 4 Talon hook with the eye cut off, ala Jin.





Please post some of your most successful recent flies

From my last couple trips. Two different rivers, four fish (all wild) to hand. A muddler variation with a silver hiltonish body, a Lady Caroline that landed two fish, and a green butt skunk variation with a wing of bunched teal. Tied on a TMC 700 and AJ Steelhead Irons in size 4 and 5.

Nice contributions everyone.
Ard, that sculpin looks money. I catch lots of fish here in Michigan on big sculpin patterns. I've tried those fish skull deals and don't care for them, just too clunky for me, but very cool to see them working for someone else. Beautiful specimen there.

Gaspe Collection

This goes back to June and July. While the season was a tough one, and the water was high everywhere I went, each fly in the selection brought at least one salmon to hand. The flies that saw the most time swinging (Picasse, Bonaventure B & G, John Olin, and Green Spey) accounted for multiple fish. And there were some memorable fish including this 42 inch hen.




Clockwise from the upper left: 1 1/2 Picasse, 3/0 Picasse, #2 Jimmy Olin Longwing, #7 Bonaventure Black and Green, 1 1/2 Green Spey, #4 John Olin, #2 Munro Killer, 1 1/2 Jones Special.

Peteo - that skunk looks so fishy. Copying. Hope that's ok. :)

Love the green spey, parasalmo, and that's a beautiful bright salmon. I'm glad most of the fish I catch are under 32 inches, a big fish like that would rip my tackle up.

CWI, feel free to copy that pattern. I seldom tie the same pattern twice, but I have always had good success with green butt patterns. That particular fly is patterned roughly after Harry Lemire's green butt spey.
