A SP member asked what flies would be suitable for trout downunder, he was planning to bring a micro spey or two on his upcoming S.I. trip. Here are a few that have received grabs this spring so far, trailing hook is only a size 14 but has some holding power as it is a heavy gauge and is stealthy. Single hook is a size 10 tiemco 3769. Pine squirrel has been my fav material lately ;)

I agree with Adam A and GHalliday, that first fly is wonderful. Well done! The others are great flies too, but I am determined to tie a dozen of that first fly! Looking forward to the recipe. Does it have a name?

Instructions part 1

Here goes, hope it makes sense.....

*7/64 bead
*any size 10 hook medium length shank
*20lb braid looped onto size 14 hook, I used a Kamasan grubber B110
*tie in braid loop from rear of shank going to eye and double back to rear
and apply super glue, trim braid
*tie red hen trimmed bunch for tail
*tie in small partridge hackle 2/3 turns
*tie in medium red copper wire
*dub in synthetic peacock and finish with some red and rib with the copper
*tie in natural pheasant hackle 2 turns then 2 strands fine uv flash
*tie in 4 barbs of orange guinea each side
*tie in partridge hackle 2 turns
*finish with small brown uv dub collar

photographs should be in order of instructions, my pheasant hackle was coarser and fibres shorter so finished fly is slightly different, but none the less will still fish well.

What are the "best" rivers to swing with a two hander in New Zealand? I might be headed there this spring.
Try rivers in N.I. starting with Ra..... and in the S.I. some with Wa…..

Making it too easy for you...

Winged Partruder

A bit of evolution from the vice...I can see some dyeing of partridge occurring in the future;)

AJS Reels those are truly beautiful. Have those been put to a vote by the fish? They look really fishy to me!
