"Claiming" Fly Patterns

Ahh, things have been getting a little too traditional around here . It has been weeks since an Intruder came to play. Most of my favourite flies are those that I have "claimed". Though I take my hat off to the true creative fishing genius that designed the beast - Ed Ward, I have begun to make it my own. I guess we all do that, no matter how we try to follow a pattern it slowly evolves more in our own image. I guess this is why my Mom doesn't follow recipes.

The Raging Intruder takes the flame orange on true orange double wings of my Raging Prawn (it too an offshoot of a GP) and combines it with the Intruder concept of Ed's. I really like it, it combines 2 of the flies that I have the most confidence in - it HAS to be good!

Let's see and hear about some of your "claimed" patterns.

John,

Scary! What is it? Something like that, but smaller and black/brown would make a killer leech fly for some some large Cariboo trout I know

Kush, I've always refered to it as "notafly" I'm still trying to find the perfect tail material for it so its one of those flys that sits on the backburner.

Perfect tail material

John

Carl Richards has a book entitled "Prey" where he used latex to form fins, leggs, crab and shrimp bodies. I tried this for a number of things, and what I can say is that it is awsome. Buy the material at the craft store that is used as rug backing. It is a liquid latex in a water and amonia base. You can color it with acrylic paint. You have to build it up by painting it on in layers over a template. Any way you can get the curly tail effect, that is very durable. I used it to make a latex stone fly body which is very realistic.
