Streamer Monday

Ahh Monday... Everyone's favorite day of the week right? Yeah, not mine. Today not to shabby though. Got some vise time. Tied a couple spey flies then during some browsing of my usual fly tying sites I found some streamer patterns for trout. That time of year is coming up fast so might as well prepare!

As I mentioned in previous posts one blog/site I follow is Franken Fly. With daily features its a great site to add to the "check often" list and you can often come away with a fly to tie. I did this tonight and found a fly that was posted today. Paul (Franken Fly) developed this pattern off of a lure his grandfather used. Read more about it here: .

Here are my "versions". A little bit of improvising, but they will catch!

Rear Hook: Gamakatsu B10S Size 1
Front Hook: Gamakatsu B10S Size 1/0
Back: Black Marabou
Body: Pearl Black Estaz, Kingfisher Blue Schlappen feather, Black palmered marabou
Head: Black Senyo Laser Dub
Eyes: Deer Creek Gator Eyez
Connected with beadalon w/ 3 black beads. Head cemented with Deer Creek Diamond Thin.

In another one of my routine reads Nick Granato (Fly Obsession posted a picture of a fly he had featured on Hatches a while back called the Chubby Muffin. So what the heck, I tied one up. I think this thing will slay em!

Thats all for now! Until next time..
