Silver & Squirrel Double

2015.01.05.dryfly.me.silver_rabbit_4Hook: Kamasan B280 #4&#8, Partridge Patriot #8
Thread: UNI 6/0 Red
Tag: UNI-French Medium Oval
Tail: GP
Body: underbody of UNI-Floss, UNI-Mylar #16
Rib: UNI-French Medium Oval
Wing: Squirrel
Hackle: Whiting Dryfly neck, Rooster Saddle Grizzly (depending on size)

A pattern on facebook got me in the direction of this fly, a grey&silver some might call it, but I used what I had to create this double on different hook sizes.

The all-silver body combined with a thin wing and trying to have a sparse hackle will make this sink quickly in the current and give a lot of visual feedback. I’ll tie this one up on singles and on tube as well, but I’ll do that later, for now I’m on a double rush!

Blue Cascade

2015.01.03.dryfly.me.cascade_blueHook: Kamasan B280 #8
Thread: UNI 6/0
Tag: UNI-French Oval Medium
Tail: Blue/Yellow Bucktail, Blue Flash
Body: UNI-Floss Black
Rib: UNI-French Oval Medium
Wing: Fox
Hackle: The Fly.Co Streamer Rooster Neck #1 Yellow, Keough Hen Saddle Blue

A blue version of the cascade salmon pattern that should work fine for seatrout around here as well. This version is very heavily dressed compared to earlier cascade I have done, but this was with purpose to have big movement in the water.

Tag: UNI-French, Lagartun French Silk
Tail: GP
Butt: Black Ostrich
Body: UNI-Floss
Rib: UNI-French

A quick one this afternoon: Two doubles that started with the blue charm as inspiration and a little bit of google image search where I found the wing and GP layout that I thought would work good together.

First double-hook salmon fly

dryfly.me.2014.01.18.double_salmonHook: Kamasan B280 #6
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tag: Lagartun Varnished Frensh Tinsel Oval X-Strong Medium
Tail: Golden Pheasant topping
Butt: Ostrich
Body: UNI Floss Black, Lagartun Varnished Frensh Tinsel Oval X-Strong Medium
Wing: Blue & Black Templedog
Cheek: JC
Varnish: Veniard No.1 Clear

A first for me today: a double-hook salmon fly. I have never had any double-hooks available, but I was in the local flytyer shop and I picked up a box of Kamasan B280 in #6 to do some experimenting. This blue/black wing pattern should prove very effective, the pattern itself is very simple and doesn’t include many materials. In fact: you can easily cut out the ostrich, golden pheasant tip and the JC and still stand with a very good fly!
