Thursday 13: My Favorite Fly Patterns

Most of you won't have any use for this, but that's ok. It's MY list! I took pictures of the exact flies I use... straight out of my fly box, so these are the colors, variations, etc. I prefer. And any of you who do any kind of fly fishing may be wondering why I don't have the Wooly Bugger on my list. That's because they rarely ever work for me. The 'Prince of a Bugger' is the closest thing to it and pretty much the only streamer I ever choose to use.

1. Copper John

2. Green Hornet

3. Orange San Juan Worm

4. Sow Bug (PMS pattern)

5. Pheasant Tail Nymph

6. Olive Zebra Midge (#22)

7. Madame X

8. Chernobyl Ant

9. Foam Beetle

10. Hot Butt Elk Hair Caddis

11. Copper Prince of a Bugger

12. Bitch Creek Nymph

13. Royal Wulff

Cool! The Copper John is like artwork.

Grandma said...

The Wooly Bugger? Obviously Grandma is not much of a fisherman .. fisherwoman .. fisherperson??

Nevertheless, the pictures were well done and quite fascinating.

I actually watched someone make one of these. I don't fish, but found the technique fascinating, as is the actual fly fishing.
Happy T13!

These are very neat! They look like a lot of work - and frustrating!
