more trout dry flies

with 3 comments

My favourite flies on the water – an Ausable Wulff (size 12) or the following peacock quill body with a grizzly and ginger hackle as below (size 14 and 16).  I over-size the hackle, and I do let it blow and ride across the water.


And when I need a small piece of fluff, I use the following Griffith Gnat variant on a Daiichi 1640 Size 16.  The hackle is too large in this case, but I do reverse tie in the hackle over pecock secured with fine copper, add in some krystal flash on the tail and a CDC overwing.


In last summer, you can  modify this tie for a BWO – extended body (floss) for the tail, omit the hackle and use a dun CDC over wing.
