Banns, Green Silks, and a pint.



On wet hooks rather than spey hooks and for lough fishing rather than spey fishing so not really on topic for the forum but win some lose some.

Its just a Golden Olive Bumble which is a well-known pattern.

Tail: Golden Pheasant Crest
Body: Golden Olive Seal
Rib: Gold Wire
Body Hackle: Golden Olive and Brown
Front Hackle: Blue Jay

Tie it by palmering the hackles back down the body, then securing them by coming back up through then with the wire to the front. Pretty standard, really.

More lough flies intended for salmon and sea trout to share.















Not exactly meant for swinging on a spey rod but I hope ya like them anyhow!

Wow, I missed this when you first posted. Good stuff, Heero!

My box is full of wets and bumbles, and I swing them proudly with my little two-handed trout rods. Hard to beat a Mallard and Claret!

Cheers,

-Bill

These are beauties.

How do you fish them when on the Lakes?

Cheers,

Scott.

Just set in a boat, get a drift going, cast them out, then pull then through waves back in.
