Patagonian,

Thanks for the info and for clarifying what had only been rumored to me by some who had never witnessed steelhead in Chile.

This last fly looks like an egg sucking leech version of the 30 year-old variant of the Woolley Bugger known as an Electric Bugger, which was tied with the electric blue flashabou in exactly the same manner as this fly of yours.

Bill ...... Last weekend I tied your fly used in Tierra del Fuego. I liked it, and I want to test it in some rivers near Puerto Varas, Chile.

Looks good. It's also occasionally tied with a few strands of peacock herl as a topping. Let us here about those aggressive takes.
Good luck
Bill

My local fish today are rainbows on Siver Creek (ID). Monday I'll be on my beloved "home" steelhead river . . . the North Umpqua. The NY locals will have to wait. : -)

Bonjour Pantagonian...

Nice fles..........

Charlie!! I need you!!!!!!!!!


Pantagonian,

Some of your flies seem to have (weight)...like the "Salmon Cone Head Tube Fly"
does this depend on species and / or waters you are fishing??

Thanks for all the info about your area...... !!

Cheers!!

Ann

Hi Ann. The weight tube flies are used in large rivers, lakes and fjord.

One of the most successful fly to fishing Sea Runs in Torres del Paine National Park rivers, in special the Serrano River is the "Serrano Special Tube Fly"

See you, Patagonian.

Smile Hook drift

To Patagonian:

You certainly have some beautiful flies there many of which are not in what has been described as the British style which is to say the fly looks the same all around the tube. For these other flies it would seem important that the hook always remain fixed in the position it is placed at the start of fishing. Even though I have a hook/tube setup that is supposed to be optimal, I find the hook drifts around in the tube preventing the fly from riding in the proper position. How do you solve this problem?

Very nice!

I fish green machines for Atlantic Salmon quite a bit.

I was thinking of doing some muddlers on tubes. The brass tubes sink very quickly so it could work well.

Charlie.
