The Grouse and Flash, a soft-hackle that can save the day. This fly is one to pull out when there are caddis about and when things are just slow it will bring a strike or two. It's simple to tie and can be used on various warm water species.
Materials, Body, Medium Holographic Tinsel, I use silver, green, and pink. A bit of hares mask for a thorax. The hackle is Grouse 2-3 turns.
This olive spider has been working well for me. Again the simplicity is the key to its success. Body, olive thread, thorax, sparse olive dubbing, hackle, 2 turns of hen.
