A short time ago John at Feathers Mc posted some saddle hackle that he dyed, he called them Funky Feathers. They were dyed with multiple colors to each feather. They looked like they could produce a nice streamer.
Well I ordered a few hackles and sat down and tied this up. It looks like it might be a good attractor pattern, especially for brookies, and landlocked salmon.
These are a few flies I like to use in the fall. They can be fished dry or wet.
A simple pattern. Peacock herl and your choice of hackle.
I spent some time on a brook trout stream the other day, it felt good, and the trout cooperated too. I'll post that report soon.
