fly pattern types
Doing a project for the site and need to categorize fly patterns in a loose association of pattern types. Trying to keep the list as succinct as possible.
Here is what I have so far and let me know if I am missing any:
dry fly trout
salmon/steelhead dry ---maybe break into one for salmon and steelhead
that is is so far. I am having trouble though with how a crazy charlie would fit in the above list or some of the other flats patterns. Also pike/muskie flies wouldn't have a home.
Any ideas? I really just want a blanket list without getting real specific.
Thanks for the help,
Yah gotta have TUBES in there,
One might consider classic salmon are a separate category than steelhead dry/wet IMHO,
Terrestrials for trout,
Emergers too, what do you call "in the film"?
Saltwater seems to be such a hodgepogde that streamer alone can't cover it although I guess technically it does, another option would be to separate by species or fisheries maybe?
Tough exercise in classification, I see why you ask the question. Any taxonomists out there? :D
Wet fly/ emerger for trout......
....and maybe break down saltwater and warmwater into just surface and subsurface patterns. This would shed the rigidity of the "streamer" definition.
That's my opinion; I welcome yours. ;)
Somehow we would need a category for the Clouser type fly for saltwater... Botton fly or something.
I like the idea of breaking saltwater into surface and subsurface. That will fit my needs dead on for this project. There will be other categories for fish species and fishery/location to go along with pattern type so this list just needs to be as generic as possible.
Also how could I forget terrestrials, emergers, and tubes.
Thanks for the help so far.
I was thinking about location too - Offshore is a category all of its own.
