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.
Nice fly & beautiful trout.
Thanks for another wonderful post to start my day..........Phil
Almost as good as coffee and sunshine.
Your streamer looks great Alan, clearly the trout think so too.ReplyDelete
At least for the first try. We'll see what happens.

Beautiful pictures with astounding quality! What camera are you using if you don't mind me asking?ReplyDelete
Bill I use a Nikon L820.
Great looking fly Alan. Looks like it's easy to tie and a real fishgetter!ReplyDelete
It is quite simple, and the first try was pretty good.
Outstanding work at the bench, I would have to tie a few extras, just to make sure I kept one to display with all the other patterns you have shown us. Thanks for sharing
I do tie a few extra, but not for display. These are truly fishing flies.
