Royal Wulff

dryfly.me.2014.05.27.royal_wulff

Hook: Dai-Riki 305 #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 White
Tail: Premium Deer
Body: Peacock, red floss
Hackle: Whiting Bronze
Wing: Kalf Hair

First time I’m going for a Royal Wulff on the vice. This is a great pattern if you are after trout, it will float forever and give a excellent impression on the surface. I don’t normally tie with calf either, so this was a first on more than one thing

A smaller version on Mustad 94840 #20:

Micro Polychenille Extended Body

dryfly.me.2014.05.25.yellow_hackle

Hook: TMC 111 #14
Thread: Sheer 14/0 White
Tail: Andre Bruns Micro Polychenille
Thorax: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly #22 Cahill Tan
Wingpost: Hareline Para Post Dark Grey
Hackle: Whiting

On this patttern the TMC 111 really shines: the short hook and wide gap makes it perfect for a extended body, and hooking a fish on smaller hooks have a greater chance to sit. Another one of my favorite patterns that the trout cannot get enough of

Olive Woolly Bugger

dryfly.me.2014.05.23.olive_buggers

Hook: TMC 5263 #10
Thread: UNI 6/0 Grey
Tail: Wapsi Select Marabou Plumes Olive
Body: Lead, Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Dark Olive
Hackle: Chincilla Neck Olive
Bead: flysite.co.nz Tungsten 3.0mm Gold

Wooly buggers are a must to have in the box – the marabou and body hackle on this pattern gives it a lot of life that should trigger a hungry trout.

Bibio

dryfly.me.2014.05.19.bibio

Hook: Dai-Riki 305 #13
Thread: Sheer 14/0
Tail: Polychenille
Wing: Hareline Para Post Dark Grey
Body: Hends Superfine
Thorax Cover: 2mm black foam
Legs: 0.5mm stretch nylon

First attempt at this pattern. The bibio hatch can be great and I have had some flies in my box previously, but those I’ve bought. This one is inspired by Andre Brun, but with some slight modifications on material since I didn’t have everything in the original pattern.
