What is everyone swinging for trout? I am in the first stages of building up my fly box for swinging and am in need of inspiration. So far I have a ton of different wooly buggers, egg sucking leaches, soft hackles and a few micro intruders.

Nick P's (Black Francis) Woody Buggers are my favorite. Bead on the front for style and enough extra looks with the collar to feel speyish.

Grabbed this black cone head bunny leach so hard I initially thought she was larger.

One 4116/Scandi 270 with 10' type 6 tip and 3' 3X Flouro

Tube flies do the trick, among most any other fly, I tend to swing traditional salmon flies the most.

I swing buggers of different colors. I have swung some nymphs, pats rubber legs and a few soft hackles.

I'm really looking forward to swinging some soft hackles in 2015.

Streamers...




Traditional wets...





Also, check out the thread I started a few days ago. Lots of great ideas there!

Working on some bunny and marabou sculpin kind of flies lately. You can't go wrong with bunny and 'bou!! I'll post some up shortly.

Tallpine, that mini intruder is great, by the way!

Everyone, keep them coming!!

I was up at Lee's Ferry in AZ last weekend. It was night and day with the Simi Seal Leech in green with a bead head. Tried dries and soft hackles, but the simi saved the day. The year prior a black bunny leech with cone head was the ticket.

Though I've mostly been partial to streamers, I am eager to find some spots where a traditional wet or soft hackle will produce.

In Alaska, when fly fishing for resident rainbows with either DH or SH rod, one needs to match the hatch ( imitation of small salmon, salmon flesh or alaskan laming/mouse).

I like to use cork in front of the mouse pattern. After fish devour the mouse, the cork can slides on the line. Such pattern also allows for enchanted disturbance on the water surface and soaked with water body stays just under surface ( perfect) . Such fly is heavy enough to cut through a wind. I hate foam only mouse because during even moderates winds it is not easy to cast it.

As for the rods, a Kerry Burkheimer short spey 5115-4 or 695-4 rods are perfect and so seet to fish and cast.

Been playing around with wet flies rather than the typical sculpzilla, ganja style marabou bomber.

After a few designs I've settled with this to imitate a baby brown trout. Seems to be working stripped off the banks now in winter conditions.



edit: Heres another one, bought soft beads on accident from ebay which I had no interest in. So I've been trying to add them in random places. There squishy so if you swing them they don't break like the hard beads. Not as bummed on them anymore. Heres an egg eating baby brown imitation wet fly.
