"Brook Series" pattern #1
This is another fly in the "Brook Series"...this is pattern #1. I've already posted pattern #3. This is also a streamer that uses feathers from the pheasant and is tied like a soft hackle.
This fly takes the look of a baitfish when stripped in, it's also quite life like in somewhat still water because of the soft hackle breathing, and pulsating. On its first outing it performed well with many strikes and a few to hand.
Hook, Mustad 38941 #10...Body, Red Floss...Tag and Rib, Flat Silver Tinsel...Hackle, Rump Feather from Ringneck Pheasant a reddish brown color...Followed by a Rump Feather from a RN Pheasant, a Golden Color...Head Peacock Herl.
Here are a few fish that found pattern #1 hard to resist.
