Here's one I have'nae been able to fish - it came about after the neighbour's flower hedge came into full bloom. Yes, the ribbing is just plain awful.

Another good one!
What's the recipe?

Happy Trails!

Hook: Partridge Bartleet 1/0
Thread: Red UNI 8/0
Body: Orange angora
Rib: Gold flat tinsel, golden-yellow silk, and oval silver tinsel
Body Hackle: GP rump
Throat: GP breast
Wing: Bronze Mallard over yellow goose

A dyed-yellow mallard wing might work just as well or better, but I don't have any dyed mallard. It came out pretty interestingly anyway IMHO.

Very Cool!!
This one I can see for low water work in the fall on the Rogue!!!

Think October Cad. hatch... snigger, snigger.

This I've got to print out and give a try at the vise, ... or is that 'vice?'

Dang me, gotta hange m.... never mind.
Dumb question: "GP Rump" is what kind of feather? Major brain fart tonight. Even printed this thread out to make sure I've got the 'instructions.'

Simply beautiful! For a steelheader, just staring at that fly brings out the goosebumps and the longing for a good pool on a crisp fall day.

Great stuff!

I don't know their exact "name", but they are the goldenish-yellow feathers found at the saddle of the Golden Pheasant.

Darn, gotta re-print the 'how to."
And hit a local shop for the goodies.

This looks like a lighter version of the CARRON. And I like the use of the G.P. rump feather as a spey feather, it is a very overlooked feather that is a very nice spey feather. Also, it accepts dye very well, which I find a plus.
