The Light Edson Tiger is a bucktail that I have fished with great success since the mid seventies. It was created by Bill Edson of Portland Maine in 1929. It is a good pattern for aslmon, and trout.
It's an easy fly to tie, with materials that are fish takers.
I tie them in sizes 6 to 10, with sizes 8 and 10 being my favorite sizes to fish.
I have posted three variations of this bucktail, and they all work well.
These two flies are similar, only the tails are different.
This fly is tied with brass cheeks. This is what Bill Edson used on his streamers. and is on the original Edson pattern.
This pattern has worked so well for me over the years, I consider it to be one of the two best bucktails for wild brook trout.
