Ray Bergmans “Trout” is a classic that you quickly hear about when it comes to classic flytying. I still haven’t got a copy, but I got some inspiration from the bergman collection and have plans to tie up some over winter to get a feel of these classic wet-flies. The bergman collection calls for a lot of material (in many colors) if you want to be true to the original, but I’m going to substitute some as I see fit and what I have available.

Blue Double for seatrout and salmon Kamasan B280 #6
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tail: Dyed Golden Pheasant Tippets Orange
Tag: UTC French Tinsel
Body: Horns Soft Salmon Dub Kingfisher Blue
Rib: UTC French Tinsel
Wing: Brown & Blue templedog, silver flash
Sides: JC

This one started with the dubbing: I got some good kingfisher blue from Horns the other day and I built this fly around that color. The dubbing is great and I found some templedog that matched in color. I really tried to keep it down in number of materials and not have it super-big when it came to the wing. This one I will tie up in different variations before I even have fished it: one that I just “know” will work when it hit the water


Midge Emerger Sheer 14/0 White
Hook: Kamasan B100 #12
Body: Polishquills Stripped Peacock Eye Orange
Thorax: SLF Squirrel
Wing: White CDC

Midge season is soon upon us, so I have started to do a inventory on my flyboxes to see what I have and what I’m missing. So: midges will be focus for a while and you will see different midge patterns appearing here in the time to come.

What is your favorite midge pattern?


Blue & Green Double Kamasan B280 #6
Tag: Lagartun French Tinsel
Body: Taimen Seals Fur Green Highlander
Rib: Lagartun French Tinsel
Body Hackle: Veniard Chinese Cock Cape Doctor Blue
Wing: Blue & Green Fox, Green Flash
Sides: JC

I often sit down and try to see how colors blend together and try to figure out how they will work. Many times I get the inspiration from other tiers on facebook, G+, forums and so on: I see some hook or pattern and I get a idea on what I want to do. Lately I have looked at a lot of dee flies and done a lot of big-wing tubes, so I try to mix it up like this: the concept of long body hackle and a hair-wing.

This one I will bring with me when I go seatrout fishing this weekend
