INTRODUCCION AL TOMO 7
Este tomo está dedicado a los obsesivos que quieran ampliar los patrones. No son patrones con menor importancia que los del Tomo 2, sino que en aquel seleccioné las moscas más representativas por uso u atado. Encontrarán aquí moscas que pueden pensar como “imprescindibles” para un lugar u ocasión especial.
Si bien el objetivo del libro son los hispanoparlantes, llegado hasta aquí, verán algunos patrones en inglés,
supongo que si empiezan con moscas de este tomo, tienen las cosas más o menos claras!! y ya un poco
empapado en el léxico “técnico” de este arte, sino vaya al tomo 6. Si ha llegado hasta aquí, ya podemos con
las recetas de las moscas, armar las nuestras.

RECETA
Vale recordar como nació este streamer: simplemente porque mis atadores, decian que la
Matuka les llevaba demasiado tiempo...
Totalmente de atado simple, se trata de presentar sobre un anzuelo pata larga - 9672 o
similar - dos pares de plumas de gallo o gallina, atadas sobre el último cuarto del cuerpo
del anzuelo - que quedará al descubierto - al
que se le adosarán cuatro, tres o dos pares de
pluma de pavo real en sus laterales. El resto
del cuerpo se cubre de tinsel dorado y a continuación se anilla una pluma de gallo de igual
color, en función del hackle, apenas una vuelta y media, se hace la cabeza y listo!. Sinceramente con plumas Grizzly - bataraces - es
mortífera. Hay pescadores que han logrado
piques simplemente dejándolas derivar, pero
personalmente las hago trabajar mucho. Técnica prioritaria: lanzar un poco arriba de la correntada; a continuación concretar un mend
Anzuelo: Mustad 9672 o similar
Hilo: 3/0 al tono
cola: dos pares de plumas bataraz y cuatro
pares de fibras de pavo real
cuerpo: tinsel dorado
collar: una pluma igual a la de la cola una
vuelta y media.
La imagen a lograr es la de una pequeña
trucha tratando de cruzar el río o tratando
de llegar a aguas más tranquilas para su
vida si de trabajarla en lagos se trata. La
idea original fue para ser utilizada en días
de mucho viento, especialmente en momentos de pre-temporal y en modelos no

contrario a la corriente (y a la teoría...).
De esta forma, quedamos el pescador y la
tromba frente a frente, mientras la línea se va
desplazando aguas abajo, apenas, muy poco.
Lo suficiente para formar un arco contrario a
la corriente!. En ese momento, hay que iniciar
el recogido que deberá ser lento, aunque a
veces cambiante. Eso es, que no sea siempre
igual.
Si el mend se hace en forma normal, el pececillo (la tromba), tendría que remontar la corriente. En cambio con el tipo de mend, (enmienda) al revés - anormal - el pececillo atraviesa la corriente, pero demostrando que la
corriente lo fuerza.
Esto es así porque al principio el streamer corta la corriente, - estamos hablando de corriente normal y no muy rápida - en forma recta,
pero luego se ve un poco impelido por la misma y termina ingresando a la costa, a las
aguas bajas, un poco más abajo de donde inició su periplo. Si se hiciera el mend en la forma teóricamente correcta, la tromba vendría a
terminar su recorrido, mucho más aguas abajo.
menores al número 2, donde pareciera que
para las grandes truchas es un verdadero
imán, puesto que suben con una fiereza
realmente sorprendente. Esta fiereza sumada al tema pretemporal gestaron el
nombre de "Tromba". Sin embargo, al pasar los años, las experiencias y sugerencias de otros pescadores (Trotz, Manfred y
Amadori) y otros grandes amigos, concretaron la conveniencia de atarlas también
en anzuelos más chicos, a punto tal de que
hace dos años, se fabrican desde el nro.
10 (impecables para pescar truchas grandes en aguas angostas y de poca correntada y profundidad). Si en su origen, las
até primero con plumas grizzly claras (poca luz) o con grizzly oscuro (algo de luz en
pre-temporal), luego seguí con el negro y
el blue dun o similar. Ahora es posible atarlas también con otros colores, pero mis
preferidos son los enunciados.

RECETA
La segunda versión a cargo de Juan Pablo
Gozio:
La receta que uso yo para la jabalí es una
que había descrito el Bebe Anchorena en un
artículo en la revista Roll Cast (el antepasado
del boletín mosquero de la AAPM) hace muchos años, allá por los 80.
Es muy simple y les diría que es una hare´s
ear con dubbing de jabalí. En realidad hay
muchas ninfas que podemos atar con jabalí:
stones, caddis, etc.

Acá va la receta del Bebe:
Anzuelo: Mustad 3906B o similar # 6 -14
Hilo: beige clarito
Cola: fibras de Wooduck o similar
Ribbing: alambre de cobre
Abdomen: dubbing de jabalí puesto en la forma tradicional sobre el hilo y luego hecho un
loop y retorcido
Wingcase: segmento de pluma de pavo
Torax: dubbing de jabalí atado en loop en la
forma tradicional, es decir hacer el loop e ir
metiendo las fibras de dubbing en perpendicular al loop y luego retorcer
Patas: (opcional) igual que la cola atadas a los
costados o beard style.
El tema principal con esta mosca es el color
del dubbing. El jabalí, en crudo, viene con
mucha grasa y es difícil quitarle el dubbing
(sobre todo si está vivo...). Por eso el mayor
trabajo es obtener el dubbing (underfur - bajo
pelo). Una vez obtenida una cantidad adecuada, el proceso de teñido es crítico. Primero se
debe sacar toda la grasa con shampoo (el detergente es agresivo para el pelo) en varios
lavados. Con el pelo limpio se puede teñir con
anilinas (preferentemente en frío para no
quemar el pelo) o con tinturas para pelo (atenti las damas). Los mejores colores son: natural, marrón, negro y verde oliva.
Espero les sirva, es una mosca "all-around"
como dirían los americanos, pudiendo variar
tamaños y construcción para imitar distintas
formas de vida.
comentarios y anotaciones (sin contar que
en el negocio de Jorge Cardillo en San
Martín de los Andes hemos visto esta
mosca en una tercer versión).
La primera corresponde a Ginés Gomariz y
es la que sigue:
Alguna vez tuve que aclarar que yo no
había sido el primero en escribir sobre la
pesca de tarariras con artificiales. Quedó
claro entonces que el mérito era y le correspondía al gran amigo
que fue ROBERTO ZAPICO ANTUÑA. En
éste de la gran JABALI, también es necesario una aclaración que me reconforta,
porque al mismo tiempo que recordar al
gran Zapico, esta es la oportunidad de
homenajear a un grande total: el Bebe Anchorena, diez como
persona y diez como pescador. Porque fue
él quien utilizó por vez primera el material.
y fue el Bebe quien, una vez más, confió
en mí y a la semana de su descubrimiento,
me lo transmitió en forma directa, esto es,
dándome un ejemplar por él atado.
Esta ninfa no difiere en nada al atado convencional. Consta de una
pequeña cola que se aposenta sobre casi
la curva del anzuelo, que puede ser de pavo común marrón o faisán; luego y aquí
viene lo interesante y mortífero, el dubbing
se confecciona con el vellón o pelo base o
sotto pelo, del jabalí. Este dubbing es anillado por tinsel fino, dorado, que al igual
que en la gran mayoría de las ninfas, Hare's Ear, a la que suplanta con creces
por ejemplo- debe «introducirse» en el
dubbing. Esto significa que el dubbing no
debe en todos los casos atarse en forma
muy ceñida. A partir del último cuarto del
cuerpo o pata del anzuelo, se fija fibras de
pavo común o de faisán de color marrón y
una pluma de partridge marrón que puede
suplantarse por perdiz chica nuestra. Se
sigue
con el dubbing de jabalí dándole mayor volumen, luego se ata dando vuelta desde la
parte más fina de la pluma -que se colocará invertida-, se fija con no más de dos
vueltas, se corta el sobrante y se cubre
con las fibras de pavo común o faisán. Se
concreta el atado con pocas vueltas siempre de hilo marrón y a continuación se pasa cemento sobre la montura y el final del
atado o mínima
cabeza... A mi criterio, una mosca bien
atada y salvo casos especiales, debe man-
“Como comenzar a pescar con mosca y no desesperarse en el intento”
Gerardo Herreros

tenerse bien, por lo menos, hasta la cantidad de diez a más piques.
Generalmente una mosca así atada, de todas formas al final de ese periplo, queda
defectuosa. No ocurre así con las ninfas y
en especial con las Hare's Ear y menos
aún con la Jabalí. Cuanto más se «deshilacha», mejor capta. Le hemos dado muchas vueltas verbales con el Bebe al éxito
de esta ninfa y lo único que
encontramos es que debe ser por su tipo
de presencia translúcida ya la movilidad
que presenta, justamente, cuando se deshilacha. Es naturalmente una ninfa emergente, por cuanto ni al Bebe ni a mí, se
nos ocurriría colocar lastre, por lo tanto,
parte de lo relatado para accionar la
Hare's, vale para este caso también.
Las ato en anzuelos 94840 o similares para la venta, y en 94845 y
fundamentalmente en la serie 200R de
Tiemco también. Otras series muy buenas
son las 700B, 135 Scud de Dai-Riki.
Uso anzuelos desde el14 al... 8 y hasta a
veces un 4... En la gran mayoría atados en
anzuelos de Tiemco, serie ya enunciada.
Pero usando ó las tres cuarta partes ó directamente e150% de la pata del anzuelo.
Ocurre que con esta anzuelo la clavada no
es fácil. Una vez lograda, es harto difícil
que el pez-cado se libere, pero es común
perder muchos piques. Y esto no es sólamente atribuible al
anzuelo, sino a la forma de tomar por parte
de nuestra amiga la trucha. En general casi no muerde, sino que pareciera que absorbiera, que aspirara cual un pejerrey,
tomando moscas. Es realmente una ninfa
increlble y, arriesgo, cuasi insuperable. Pero vale ayudarla. Por caso ejemplar, con
ellídery su final. Es sin
ninguna duda, muy importante maniobrar
con líderes largos, que le permitirán un accionar bien liberado, que a su vez en
aguas levemente rápidas, nos permitirá
accionar constantemente con la caña.
Por favor ubíquese en función de pesca;
lanzamos un poco, no mucho, por debajo
de nuestra ubicación. Cuando la ninfa llega
a tomar contacto con el agua, levante la
caña y deje deslizar el par de metros que
tiene en la mano opuesta a la que sostiene
la caña... A continuación, con línea «blanda» en el agua, empiece
“Como comenzar a pescar con mosca y no desesperarse en el intento”
Gerardo Herreros
54
en forma constante, suave, de acuerdo con
las innumerables corrientes superficiales
de las aguas donde estamos pescando, a
concretar pequeños mends, enmiendas
que en realidad, deben llevar dos sentidos:
el de mantener un control por supuesto,
ante una posible picada, pero, fundamentalmente, para darle a la ninfa un sentido
de vida. Esa ninfa, en su reacción natural,
está
buscando llegar a la superficie sacudiendo
su cuerpo a los efectos de desprender el
caparazón que sujeta sus surgentes alas...
Y este es el momento que espera la trucha
para tomarla. Lo he visto infinidad de veces actuando como guía.
Cuando la ninfa llega a ubicarse en forma
directa -río abajo- de la ubicación del pescador, una trucha que viene acompañando
el derivaje, se queda sin atacar, casi colocando su trompa tocando al cebo. Es
cuando en la mayoría de los casos cometemos error: no debe recogerse precipitamente sino todo lo contrario. Debe
traccionarse la ninfa en forma por demás
suave y lenta; AQU I es cuando la trucha
en la mayoría de los casos, se abalanza
sobre la Jabalí... Desde tres metros hasta
3,60 he utilizado y recomiendo en el largo
del líder. Final máximo para tamaños
grandes, el 0,20. Pero mejor resulta utilizar
un final del 0, 15 en pequeños y medianos
ríos y del 0, 18 en los semejantes al Chimehuín. Con Jabalíes atadas en anzuelos
del doce, he logrado capturas de más de
tres kilos.
Con monstruos atadas en anzuelos del
ocho al cuatro, muchas son las capturas
de grandes ejemplares...
La receta que uso yo para la jabalí es una
que había descrito el Bebe Anchorena en
un artículo en la revista Roll Cast (el antepasado del boletín mosquero de la AAPM)
hace muchos años, allá por los 80.

Peeping Caddis
Fly: Lars Christian Benten, Photograph: Hans

Hook: TMC 5262 # 6-10
Thread: Tan UNI 8/0

Case: Fibers of a golden pheasant tail spun in a
loop, wound a cut to shape and covered with
FlyTite ro Superglue
Legs: Span Flex rubber legs kinked with a
Flytyers Hotpoint

Note: I often add additional weight to this dressing
under the body to get it as heavy as possible. Not
a fly I actually fish very much, but in certain clearwatered rivers I often use it for dapping ?. It gives
me great pleasure to lower a fly right down to a
fish I can see and for this, the fly should be as
heavy as possible.

LE Shuttlecock Variant
Fly: Leif Ehnström, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Partridge Long Shank Sedge or similar
Thread: Black
Tail: White Marabou
Abdomen: Biot or hackle stem
Thorax: Dubbed CDC and thin strip of foam on top
Breathers/Feelers: White CdC
Note: This is probably the best idea when fishing
for fish that cruise the lake for hatching midges.
The plume of CdC makes the fly hanging just under the surface. The difficulty is to get the right
amount of CdC. You have to test. The fly is tied in
the hook bend only.
I got the idea from the Leon Links book “Tying
Flies with CDC” where you can read about the
shuttlecocks of Clive Perkins and see variants
from Paul Canning, Chris Howitt and Elie Beerten.

marks, the fly can also be tied with an olive or
cree wing and a darker head to mimic a small
sculpin.

Thread: Brown Pearsall’s gossamer silk
Body: Brown Chenille, fur or wool
Hackle: Dark brown cock
Wings: Tawny Owl or brown quill feather sub
Note: These flies were originally designed to imitate large moth’s that fell on the water after dark in
the summer. Traditional wings were just one large
slip of feather folded over. This is opposed to the
two matched slips of feather that is more commonly used today.
Also, when clipping the waste part of the wing material, leave an extra bit to simulate the head of a
moth or large caddis.

Little Grayling Streamer
Fly: Marcus Ruoff, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Any barbless strong dry fly or nymph hook
size 8-12
Weight: Brass conehead
Thread: Dyneema or white thread
Body: doll hair
Eyes: prismatic eyes either flat or epoxy
Background:
This is an easy to tie small streamer which has
proven very successful at the start of the season
or anytime small fry is around. Good thing about it
is that due to the conehead it is a good sinker but
still has enough lifelike action through the doll
hair. Also it is quite transparent in the water which
might be one reason for its success.
The eyes are not compulsory but look nice if you
want to take the trouble to attach them.
The one in the picture has already caught some
fish, so it doesn’t look brandnew.
Tying notes:
Thread conehead onto hook, wind on thread, bind
in doll hair strip and wind doll hair right into the
conehead so that it sits relatively tight. Finish with
half hitches and attach eyes with superglue or any
other glue that keeps the eyes on for a minute or
two.
Ugly Mayfly
Fly: Marcus Ruoff, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: any long shank dry fly hook in size 8-12
Thread: To match body color
Body and extended body: white foam cut square
to the thickness desired
Wing: two similar CDC-feathers
Hackle (optional): you might leave it out or take
the trouble to add a bit of fanciness to the pattern
by adding a parachute hackle like in the picture.
This fly would catch equally well without the
hackle!
Background:
This must rate as about the ugliest mayfly pattern
ever! This is not a picture postcard, naturalistic,
breathing, lifelike creation as most of the big mayflies you normally see. But boy this one is one hell
of a fish catcher. As you might know we have
quite a few chalk streams here in Southern Germany with big, famous hatches of big mayflies. It
is here that this fly proved its effectiveness time
and time again.
My friends and I have really given a lot of patterns
at different waters a try because the fish can be
quite selective. We have tried everything from e.g.
Oliver Edwards, Gerhard Laible and other impressionistic and classic patterns etc. but this one
really stood out anywhere we were fortunate

enough to experience this wonderful hatch.
White was the most effective colour so far, although we have tried to copy the more yellow-like
colour of the naturals. You might want to try this
out or adjust the colour to your needs.The helicopter effect of most of these big flies is not too bad
with this one either if you try to match the CDCwings.

Gurgle-Pop Popper
Fly: Peter Frailey, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 8 dry fly hook
Thread: White Danville 3/0 or Flat-waxed
Tail: Chartreuse Widows Web (or other crinkly
synthetic yarn, zelon, etc)
Underbody: 5/16th-inch wide strip of 2mm yellow
foam, tied down in three places to create segments
Overbody: Same strip of foam as above folded
forward and tied down at the front segment
Legs: Round orange rubber leg material
Note: This is my variation of Jack Gartside’s renowned Gurgler. I tie it with a more pronounced
lower “lip” to create a cupped popper face. It also
resembles a large foam beetle with a tail! Whatever it is, it is my favorite and most frequently
used surface fly for warm-water species. Size 8
works well for the panfish and small bass I find in
local farm ponds. Size 4 works nicely when targeting larger bass.
“Como comenzar a pescar con mosca y no desesperarse en el intento”

Tip: For a nice bass bug on a size 4 hook, cut
your foam slightly wider. You might try slightly
thicker foam (I use an evazote foam from Rainy’s)
or two layers of foam of the same or different colors.
Hare & Herl Bugger
Fly: Peter Frailey, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: size 14 3xl or 12 2xl

Weight: 10 wraps of thin lead wire and/or beadhead
Tail: Rabbit fur
Body: 3-5 peacock herls and 2 strands of black
Krystal flash, all twisted together and wrapped the
length of the body
Hackle: Dun hen neck hackle
Note: This small bugger has worked everywhere
I’ve tried it, from tailwater fisheries with suspicious
trout to tannic colored warm water with smallmouth bass. When wet it looks very much like the
damselfly nymphs that hatch all season in most of
my local waters.
Tip: A marabou tail will work, but I prefer rabbit fur
for a durable tail material on small buggers. Cut
short pieces from zonker strips to experiment with
different color tails.

Tail: Pinch of coral marabou
Ribbing: Fine copper wire

Head: Peacock herl
Note: This is one of the greatest middle dropper
flies ever. I have won competitions on this fly
when everyone else struggled. It is small enough
not to frighten fish, but bright enough to attract
them. It got its name when my boat partner beat
me 7-1 in a competition using this fly. He gave me
one at the end of the day. It was originally an orange lure, but I tried the coral colored one and it
was even better than the original. The scruffier it
gets, the more the fish like it. It is also a good lure
for perch.

some natural white hairs from the flank of a White
Tail Deer
Notes: This fly is simply a modification from Al
Troth’s “Elk Hair Caddis.” It was developed out of
a need to present a darker, more mottled appearing wing than elk hair provided. But a problem
arose in that the fly's darker wing was difficult to
see in bright light, so a friend, Stu Garrison, and I
came up with the idea of placing lighter colored
hair over the darker natural deer. We tried various
colors, but found that white was the most visible to
different fishermen in various circumstances. Of
course the body and hackle color can be changed
to more closely match the natural. The real bonus
this fly supplies over an Elk Hair Caddis is the
wing being a bit more mottled as well as being
visible in both dark shadowed as well as brightly lit
situations.
Cylinder Popper (blue tiger)
Fly: Jerry Caruso, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Straight eyed hook(light wire preferred), 3
to 4XL, size 10-1
Thread: To match foam color
Tail: Marabou (or whatever)
Body/hackle: White foam cylinder(1/4 to 1/2 inch)
Floatation: Dry or Saddle
Sparkle: Fabric Paint(Icicle Sparkle)
Eyes: 3-D Epoxy
Color: Permanent Markers
Note: Just a flat faced cylinder popper. I like to
use a white cylinder to give me more color options. One in the vise wrap the hook shank with
thread. I use a hot needle to burn a hole through
the cylinder. Then I coat the hook shank with super glue and quickly slide the cylinder on the
shank. I will color the cylinder (I like white, chartreuse, Fire Tiger, Blue Tiger, and Orange Tiger).
Coat with the fabric paint. Let dry. Add a second
coat of color and eyes. Add second coat of fabric
paint or epoxy. When dry tie in tail and hackle.
Color to match the body. Hackle can be trimmed
flat on bottom if you want. I tie these in various
sizes and lengths. I will also slide E-Z body or
Corsair tubing over them for a more tapered popper. Eyes go over the hook point not in the front.

Thread: Black
Body: PolaFibre stacked, tied in behind the eye.
Black over Olive over White
Flash: Sparkleflash/TD>
Eyes: 3-D Epoxy
Head: Area from eye to just past hook bend is
coated with Flex-Loc(you can also use epoxy)
Note: Tied to imitate small American eels that
swim up the Delaware River during the spring.
There about 3-4 inches long. Just about any
gamefish in the river will eat these eels. For salt
water this makes a passable Sand eel(which is a
fish not an eel). Tied using longer materials to
about 8-12 inches long with a little more bulk.
It can be used to imitate the eels used by those
livelining for stripers in the fall. Although I used
black thread in this pattern. Clear mono would be
a better choice.
Estaz Bug
Fly: Jerry Caruso, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Tiemco 101, size 4 to 12
Thread: White(match the color of the Estaz)
Weight: Lead wire(wrapped in middle of hook
shank)
Tail: White Marabou or Arctic Fox over flash material of choice
Body: White Estaz(see comments)
Note: This is a good pattern. It imitates nothing
natural, but does a fair imitation of a Mr. Twister
Grub. I have caught everything from Snapper
Blues to Trout on it. My biggest fly rod smallmouth, 18 inches, fell for a size 4 white one.
A very simple tie. Wrap your lead wire around the
shank. Tie in sparse amount of flash material(about 10 strands) then tie in your marabou or
arctic fox. Tie in the estaz, wrap forward and tie
off, build a thread head. Now take your scissors
and trim, give it a crew cut. It should have a grub
shape when done.
How to fish. I have caught fish dead drifting it, I
have had them pick up as it was lying on the bottom, or when stripped in.

Fun Foam Popper
Fly: Jerry Caruso, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Any dry fly hook, standard size to 3XL
Thread: To match foam color
Tail: Marabou
Body/hackle: Dry Fly or Saddle hackle
Floatation: Circle punched from craft foam
Note: An easy and effective pattern. It was shown
to me by a local tyer, whose name escapes me,
about 5 years ago. I use craft store foam either
1/16 or 1/8 inch, I prefer 1/8 inch when I can get it.
Punch various size circles out of it. I use expended brass, from .38 Special to 12 Ga. shotgun
to punch my circles out. Put your hook in the vise.
Wrap some thread behind the eye. I like to add a
drop of super glue to the thread covered area.
Pinch the foam circle at the bottom and slide it
onto the hook shank just behind the eye. Then
wrap it into place. If done right it should form a
cupped popper head. Bring the thread to the back
of the hook tie in your marabou tail. You can add
some flash if you want. Then tie in your hackle by
the tip and wrap forward to right behind the head.
Tie off and trim excess. Then take your scissors
and trim the hackle flat on the bottom. The eyes
on this fly are pin heads, but a dot of fabric paint
or no eyes at all will do just as well. I tie from size
12 to size 2. It pushes a lot a water when stripped.
At rest, the tail end sinks and the fly will sit vertical
until stripped. I tie it mainly in white, chartreuse
and yellow, but it can be tied in whatever color
combination that suits yours or the fish's fancy.
Little Black Caddis
Fly: Jerry Caruso, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Tiemco 2488, size 20
Thread: Black, 12/0
Body: Black CDC Feather tied in by the tip and
wrapped
Wing: Black CDC
Note: Ridley Creek, here in SE PA has an excellent hatch of these caddis in the spring. I tied up a
pattern based on information in a book which said
to use a size 14 dry fly hook. Anyway, the pattern
was way to big, and did not get a look from the
trout. Caught a few caddis and took them home
with me. This pattern was the result. It is based on
the CDC and Elk.
There was not any deer or elk hair small enough
so I opted to use Black CDC for the wing. Since
these caddis "walk" on the water, heading toward
the shore, most action occurs at the end of the
drift as the fly starts to swing.

feather is tied in by the tip and wrapped like a
CDC&Elk. I trim the flaring barbules. Start with the
Red Brown CDC make a couple of wraps (can't be
sure if this is an egg sac) trim, then tie in Dark
Brown CDC and wrap forward.

Note: Actually based on a gnat or black fly but it's
my go to "midge" pattern. Best size seems to be a
22. Body is CDC feathers tied in by the tip, and
wrapped like a CDC&Elk. When I get down to the
smaller sizes, I use just the barbules for the body.
Wing is a clump of white CDC. Initially tied as a
dry, discovered by accident that it's equally effective when wet and fished as a dropper.

Pattern information
Adjust the materials to reflect the hues of your local dragonfly nymphs, but be sure the tail and legs
are tied with dyed-over-grizzly or somehow mottled. This is what causes the abdomen to look
segemented without having to wrap materials
around a hook or extension.

Hook: Orvis standard dryfly-#16
Thread/head: Danville's 6/0-Olive

This fly is based on the original Usual tied by
Francis Betters of New York. The original is a fine

fly, but somewhat limited because of it's monotone grey/brown color. I tye this in a neater, trimmer style than the original and choose colors for
the body and wing that match any number of mayfly hatches. The character remains faithful to the
original. Over the past 8 years or so, "Usuals"
have become my dryfly of first choice for mayfly
hatches.

good in #16.
Yellow Bellied Mattress
Thrasher
Fly: Steve Williams, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Orvis dry fly 2X long. Sizes #10 & #8
Thread: Black prewaxed nylon 6/0
Abdomen: A mixture of black seal fur and black
rabbit
Wing: Fine textured deer hair tied flat along the
abdomen
Thorax: A mixture of pale yellow seal fur and pale
yellow rabbit
Hackle: Grizzly dry fly hackle palmered in 5-6
open turns over the thorax and clipped flush on
the bottom
Tying notes:
I was introduced to this pattern on the AuSable
River in Michigan during the 1970s. Its' low profile
and flush floating character combine to make it a
very good fly where trout can take a good look at
imitations. It also floats well on rough water. This
has proven to be a good fly in other colors wherever stone flies are present. I also tie it with yellow
abdomen and thorax, and with rusty brown abdomen and yellow thorax.

Fished wet all season, on a tight line, either damp,
or full wet, and allowed to swim on the downstream hang for a few moments before a slow
jerky retrieve. Before copper tinsel was readily
available, copper pot scrubbers (Chore
Boys/Girls) were unravelled and the resulting
copper tinsel used.

Mighty Pink Thing
Fly: Ken Driedger, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Salmon 2/0-6
Thread: Unithread 6/0, Wine
Tail: Whole blood marabou plume, Hot Pink
Body: Cactus chenille: large, fuschia, wrapped full
over the blood plume stalk, and fibers stroked
rearwards each turn, permitting close, tight wraps
with no entrapment of the chenille
Hackle #1: Webby hot pink schlappen, folded
Hackle #2: Jumbo orange Guinea Fowl, tip-tied,
folde
This pattern was originated for the Pinks, and the
Sockeyes, but takes Steelhead in the last of the
fall in the stable, slow water swims. Rogue Steelhead take them in the warmer times, while angling
for Pinks.
.08
Fly: Ken Driedger, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Salmon 2/0-6
Thread: Unithread 6/0, Purple
Tail: Purple marabou short, about 1/2 inch long
Body: Black and pink acrylic yarns, woven
Hackle: Long, soft, ordinary Barred Rock, as long
in the feather and the fiber as you can find,
palmered over body, with the first wrap veiling the
tail
Wing: Purple Marabou short, tied vertical, about
3/4 body length
The body is plumped up with a commercial nymph
form, or tag ends of the yarns, doubled back and
forth as the underbody. Fished damp, or full wet.
Created under the unfluence... hence the name;
.08 being the maximum blood alcohol content for
driving in Canada, and many U.S.A. states. The
fly undgergoes a startling transformation when
wet, and ought not to be dismissed as a bad
dream.
The strikes are hard, with very few short takes. If
the maker uses 'genetic'grizzly, then one side of
the feather should be stripped, to keep the barb
count low. Larger .08's are known as "5-day
benders", regular sized ones arealso known as
"drunks", fancy ones are known as "Sp8's", and
collectively,they aka as "Barflies"
Note: Excellent instructions for the parallel weave
can be found in the latest reference book by
Leeson and Schollmeyer.

Notes
The fly works well on the Adriatic for Mackerel and
other relatives. And that's what it was designed for
in the first place. I never used it on the flats, YET!
;-) But I bet it will work there too. It can be also
used in muddy water days in the sea shore or
fresh water.

were tied on.

Hook: size 16 nymph
Thread: 8/0 grey uni-thread
Head: Small clear glass bead
Tail/Body: tan micro chenille (Use Zap-a-Gap to

Note: My friend, Dean Perry, is one of the greatest
fishermen I have ever seen. His style is fast and
efficient, like the great Art Flick. Whenever I get
the chance to fish with him, I am humbled. On any
given day, for every fish I catch, he will take 3 or
4. Dean introduced me to this great sport, and has
been my inspiration to keep at it.
Dean’s flies are always great fish catchers, and
they are simple to tie. This aquatic worm fly is
possibly the simplest fly I have even seen, and it
breaks the tradition of common fly tying. But, toss
it over any large trout, and they don’t seem to care
how long it took you or that it isn’t a “real fly” - they
just care that it looks like food! I know a spring
creek in Washington where this pattern catches
more fish than everything else combined. Fish
Dean’s Worm close the bottom, and be ready as
takes can be hard to detect.

Freight Train
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Mustad salmon fly hook, size 4-6
Thread: 3/0 black uni-thread
Tail: Purple Hackle Fibers
Rib: Small silver tinsel
Body: Orange floss, Then Pink Pheasant tail, followed by peacock
Wing: White calf tail
Note: This fly was not designed by me or by any
local fishermen. The great Randal Kauffman designed this fly, and popularized it on the famous
steelhead rivers of Oregon. But I am including it
because it has special value to me. This is the
pattern I took my first steelhead on, while fishing
the Deschutes River with my dad.
Fish this fly using a down and across method, let
it swing until it is fully below you, then pick up and
cast again. This method is very methodical, and
sometimes you will forget that you are even fishing at all. Cast, swing, step, and repeat. A peaceful rhythmic motion you soon become absorbed
with. You realize what this sort of fishing is about a solitary game, worlds apart from common trout
fishing. There are no loud fisherman and their
rude guides who care nothing about the river or its
needs. It’s just you, and the fish
Girdle Bug
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 2-12 3x long nymph hook
Thread: 3/0 black uni-thread
Weight: Tungsten bead, lead wire rapped around
the shank
Body: Variegated chenille
Legs: Silicon, pumpkin fleck
Note: The Girdle Bug is perhaps the secret pattern of a few local experts on the famous Grand
Rhonde River in Oregon. Last year, while fishing a
short stretch of the Rhonde, one of my close
friends took fourteen steelhead in under one hour.
I didn’t believe him until a week later when he
showed me the photos of that amazing day. If that
isn’t a testament to the effectiveness of this fly, I
don’t know what is.

Hook: Size 8-14 short shank dry fly hook
Thread: brown size 70 ultra thread
Tag: Small silver tinsel
Back hackle: Grizzly rooster neck

Note: “Dad, Fish on!” I shouted desperately as a
large trout sped away with my fly firmly hooked in

Hairy Gammarus
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: size 16 scuds, flattened out
Thread: Grey 8/0 uni-thread
Weight: Lead wire wrapped around shank
Body: Hare's ear Hairline dubbing
Note: The Hairy Gammarus is an easy pattern to
tie, which will catch a lot of fish. It’s a great fly for
beginners to tie.
I like to fish this fly behind a larger pattern, such
as a damsel nymph or a bead head Copper John.
One of my largest trout, a fish well over 30 inches,
fell to this pattern one June evening. Using a scud
imitation like this fly will put you on large fish, because scuds are a main food source for large
trout.
Ice Fly
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 12-scud hook
Thread: 8/0 grey uni-thread
Weight: Small brass bead
Tail: Dark pink marabou
Rib: small silver tinsel
Body: Dark pink ice dubbing
Note: This is a great pattern for small, still waters.
I fish this pattern similarly to a chironomid. Let it
sink for about 20 seconds, and then slowly retrieve the fly, in 4-6 inch strips. While the Ice Fly
doesn’t imitate anything in particular, it does have
a lot of flash and movement. The Ice Fly is a great
producer year round, and a great fly to try when
nothing else seems to strike the fish’s fancy.

Mac Daddy
Fly: Andy Simon, photographs: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 4-10 3x long nymph hook
Thread: 6/0 dark red uni-thread
Eyes: Lead eyes
Weight: Lead wire wrapped around that hook
Claws: Matched pair of pheasant body feather
Rear legs: Orange zonked strip, rapped around
shank
Body: Orange rabbit dubbing
Feelers: Pheasant tail fibers
Hackle: Brown rooster neck, tied palmer style
Rib: Large green ultra wire
Shellback: Olive Raffia, with a coat of Softex over
it
Note: This is a great pattern for large trout and
bass anywhere crawfish live. This fly is a little time
consuming to tie, but its well worth it. The great
action it provides attracts fish that don’t even look
at other offerings. Fish the Mac Daddy close to
the bottom, with 6-inch strips. Every 5 or so strips,
give the fly an aggressive strip twice as long and
twice as fast as the normal strip.
Mahogany and Peacock
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 14-18 dry fly
Thread: Mahogany size 70 ultra thread
Tail: Brown hackle fibers
Rib: Brown quill
Body: Mahogany thread
Wingpost: Natural cdc
Hackle: Peacock
Thorax: brown rooster neck hackle
Note: This beautiful dry fly is one of my favorites
to tie. One day last year I was fishing a small
creek near my home, when I saw a few rusty duns
coming off the water and soon it turned into a fullscale hatch. The only problem was I didn’t have
anything in my box to match the duns, so I fished
with an Adams the rest of the day, only catching a
few fish. I was back the next day, determined not
to let the same thing happen and I was armed
with a fly I had tied the night before. Right on
“Como comenzar a pescar con mosca y no desesperarse en el intento”

queue, the duns started coming off the water and
the fish were rising. I cast out with hands shaking
and high expectations, but to my disappointment
my fly sank like a rock, and without my floatant
that day, I was helpless. Back to the drawing
board, I needed a pattern that would work quickly
as the hatch would be over in a few days. I was at
my bench that night when I remembered a batch
of CDC feathers that my friend had given me. Before he gave them to me, he got out a glass of water and showed me what happened when a CDC
feather was submerged. It trapped air, and did not
become saturated. Amazing. I decided to use one
of the CDC feathers as the wing post for the parachute. I tied up a bunch of flies that night, and had
high hopes for the next day.
Just as the two days before, the duns came and
the fish rose, but today I wasn’t just a spectator to
the action, I was catching fish! That day I stopped
counting at about 15. Let’s just say I caught my
fair share of trout with this fly.
Mill Creek Hopper
Fly: Andy Simon, photographs: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 10 dry fly hook
Thread: Black 6/0
Body: Yellow 3mm foam, marked with black permanent marker
Underwing: Green dear hair
Overwing: Green raffia
Legs: Yellow rubber legs, marked with black permanent marker
Head: Yearling elk tied bullet style, eyes drawn
with black permanent marker
Note: This fly was named for one of my favorite
home waters; a beautiful stream near Walla Walla
called Mill Creek. While this fly looks complex, it is
really fairly simple to tie. They key to this fly is getting the extended body right. To build the extended body, slip a piece of foam that is 3 inches
long and 1/8 inch wide onto a needle so that the
foam is impaled in the middle, with one and one
half inches of foam on either side of the needle.
Now, put the needle into your vice, and attach the
thread. Wind the thread back to the foam and begin forming the body. First form one ball will the
thread, then advance the tying thread and form
two more. Once you have finished, whip finish the
thread and pull the body off the needle. Now, take
one of the foam sections, and stick the hook
through it, pulling the foam all the way up to the
bend of the hook. Then, attach your thread to the
hook, and wrap it back to the foam. Now, form 2
more balls of foam, and cut the excess foam from
the hook. Next, and perhaps most the important
step in this fly, is to put a drop of Zap-a-Gap onto
“Como comenzar a pescar con mosca y no desesperarse en el intento”

the body, to hold it in place so it does not spin. After this is finished, dress the fly as you would any
other hopper pattern. I use a bullet head and rubber legs for the fly, but feel free to use a clipped
hair head, or anything else you want to try. Experimentation is a crucial step in developing good
flies.
Simon’s Spey
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Size 6-8 Mustad salmon fly hook
Thread: 3/0 black uni-thread
Tail: Black Saddle hackle fibers
Rib: small silver tinsel
Body, rear two/third: black uni-thread
Body, front one/third: black rabbit fur (see tying
note)
Collar: Purple saddle hackle
Tying note: Rabbit fur is spun into a dubbing loop
using a special technique. Form a dubbing loop,
then open the loop, and place in a zonker strip so
that all the rabbit fur is inside the loop and pointing
out one side. The skin portion of the zonker strip
is left on the other side of the loop. Clip the skin of
the strip, so that only the rabbit fur remains in the
dubbing loop. Now simply spin the dubbing loop
and wind around the hook shank.
Note: This fly is perhaps one of my favorites to tie.
It is beautifully simple, yet has a nice profile.
Simon’s Spay bridges the gap between the old
world spey style flies and modern techniques. Using a variation on the dubbing loop technique, a
flowing hackle of rabbit fur is formed, giving the fly
tons of action while in the water. Try this pattern
out on you local anadromous species and you will
be pleasantly surprised.
S.L.F Damsel
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: size 12-scud model
Thread: 8/0 grey uni-thread
Weight: Lead wire
Tail: Olive marabou, very sparse
Rib: Small red ultra wire
Body: Olive synthetic living fiber
Eyes: Green melted mono
Note: The S.F.L Damsel is a great pattern for still
waters. Any time you see cruising trout, cast a few
feet in front of it, and let the fly sink, and once it
gets down to the fishes level, give it short fast
strips until the fish passes or picks they fly up.
This can be an amazing way to fish on July evenings when every fish in the lake is near the shore
feeding on damsels.

Swimming Scud
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: size 12-scud model, with a flattened shank
Thread: Dark red 6/0 uni-thread
Weight: lead wire, wrapped around entire shank
Rib: Small red ultra wire
Shellback: Plastic bag, cut to shape, with a coat of
Softex over it
Body: Olive synthetic living fiber
Note: Contrary to popular belief, scuds do not
have a curved position as they swim. The only
time a scud takes up a curved position is when it’s
dead, or tumbling down a rushing stream, trying to
find a foothold. So, for this scud imitation I use a
scud hook, flattened out so it doesn’t have any
bend. Why you ask do you still use a scud hook,
and not a normal nymph hook? Because the gap
of a scud hook is larger, giving a better chance to
hook this fish…simple as that.
To fish this fly, cast it out in front of cruising fish,
and let it sink until it gets down to their level. Now,
begin to strip it in using brisk, 3-6 inch pulls. Often
times, you will not feel a take with this pattern, so
when you feel any change in the resistance on
your line, strike. Many fish will take this fly and
swim towards you, so the line will become easier
to retrieve, if this happens, you must use a strip
strike, to pull as much line in so you make contact
with the fish.
Tucannon Special
Fly: Andy Simon, photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Mustad salmon fly hook, Size 2-8
Thread: Orange flat waxed nylon
Eyes: Large bead chain eyes
Weight: Lead wire wrapped around shank
Tail: Pink marabou
Rib: Small silver tinsel
Body: Pink marabou wound around shank
Note: I developed this pattern to catch summer
and winter run steelhead on the Tucannon River.
It is simple and easy to tie. This is an important
thing for a steelhead fly, because if you want to
catch steelhead, you must fish deep. If you must
fish, then you will lose many flies.

Willow Fly
Fly: Russell Stanton, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: TMC 2312 # 6 or Orvis 8808 4 XL streamer
hook # 6
Thread: Gudebrod "G" thread, fluorescent orange
(surgical wire optional)
Body: orange closed cell foam cut in strip and
wrapped around shank
Hackle: grizzly, palmered
Wing: Elk rump hair
Note: This bland looking fly deserves an explanation. It's Bill Campbell's version for the large
stoneflies found on the headwaters of the Rio
Grande and locally known as Willow Flies. Originally tied many years ago by Bill to try and get a
fly that would hold up after more than just a few
toothy browns, he used closed cell foam for the
body and surgical wire instead of thread. After Bill,
along with his fishing friends, Howard, and the
ranch manager, Rod, all had their say on the fly's
design and efficacy they put in Rod's boat and
began the float toward the ranch. Howard was in
the front of the boat that day (which surprises me
since he's always insisted I take the front whenever we've fished) and both the fly and the fishing
were holding up to expectations. After Howard
had accounted for all of his fish that day on the
same fly, he hooked into one last brown as they
approached the take out spot at the ranch. Rod
leaned forward and said to Howard, "Don't loose
that fly." He didn't, and that last fish made 46 on
the same fly. Mission accomplished, Bill.

Nuke Egg
Fly: Cory Muench, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Orvis 1639; Size 14
Thread: Uni 6/0; Rust Brown
Egg: Dark Orange McFly Foam
Halo: Champagne or Cotton Candy Glo-Bug Yarn
Tying notes: Start thread and put down thread
base 3/4 way to bend. Work thread back to middle
and tie in McFly foam on top of hook and trim to
round just like tying an egg pattern. Take thread
back to front of egg. Take a short piece of bug
yarn and pull off small piece of that lengthwise.
Fan out material to make a very thin square piece;
try to make thin sheen of material as uniform in
thickness as possible to avoid any clumping when
tying in. Take material and poke over eye of the
hook in the middle and tie in half on opposite side
of hook with one turn, then fold back material on
near side of hook and tie in. Hold bug yarn back
over egg and make a couple more turns to secure
material and finish. Trim yarn to back of egg.
This pattern isn't done justice until you put it in the
water. Tie one up and drop it in a cup of water and
seeing is believing. Bug yarn becomes translucent
and makes the egg look milky in the water. The
best producing egg pattern I've tried.
Simple Foam Beetle
Fly: Cory Muench, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Orvis 1523; Sizes 16-22
Thread: Uni 8/0; Black
Abdomen/Body: Black Foam
Legs: Black Elk hair
Wing: White Antron or Glo-bug Yarn
Tying notes: Take foam and singe edges with
lighter to give a softer look. Start thread and tie in
foam length of hook in tight wraps giving the body
a compressed, uniform shape. Work thread back
to just behind hook eye and fold foam over making the back. Tie in neck with a couple turns and
take 3-4 elk hair fibers and tie on back with figure
eight. Elk hair will naturally fan out making legs,
trim to length. Take wing material, really just used
as an indicator post so you can see a black fly,
and tie in. Finish fly and trim excess foam in front
of hook eye to make head.
Easy and effective beetle pattern that floats well. I
have found success with small sizes, 18-20, on
small streams.

Tying notes: Variation on classic RS2 pattern.

thickness. Trim excess and touch dub beaver
dubbing and dub to half way point on shank. Tie in
one side of sparkle lace and then fold over and tie
in other side and trim. Can help to use a dubbing
needle inside loop if needed to even it out. Touch
dub again with beaver dubbing and cover wing tieins and take to eye of hook and finish.

Swing it deep, and be prepared for some
_vicious_ strikes!

Thread: UNI 8/0
Ribbing: silver med or med/fine wire
Butt: green yarn
Body: black yarn, slighty tapered
Wing/tail: 2-4 black saddle hackles, tied in
matuka-style. Total feather length should be approximately twice the length of the hook
Collar: 4-5 turns of black saddle hackle, same size
as those used for the wing
Overwing: arctic fox tail
Note:
The name of "green butt punk" comes from the
fact that it looks like (and essentially _is_ a green
butt skunk with a mohawk ;^) )
Skim Milk
Fly: Ben Sobel, Photograph: Hans Weilenmann
Hook: Mustad 94840 or equivalent, sizes 8-20
Thread: UNI 8/0 or Gordon Griffith's 14/0
Tail: calf tail, color to match natural
Body: calf tail, extended body style, angled
downwards when in the vise; this will help it to ride
upside down and give it a very realistic profile in
the water. Can be dubbed for more durability
Hackle: butts of calf tail used in making tail/body,
spread underneath the shank comparadun-style
Note: I have not fished this fly yet, but when tank
tested, I could hardly believe how realistic it
looked on the water. It should make an excellent
imitation of a dun and spinner of all mayfly species, with a few simple adjustments of thread and
hair colors. Enjoy!

Body hackle: Brown
Body: Tan beaver dubbing
Wing: Elk hair
Notes and fishing instructions:
A bead head dry fly might seem “mad” but this
pattern is actually named for my favorite fly tying
partner. Considering the trout attracting power of
bead head nymphs, I thought why not bring some
flash to surface patterns. The bead emulates the
light focused by the surface tension dimples created by the insect’s feet on the water surface.
Plastic beads are light and can be supported by
most standard floatation techniques. The beads
can be purchased in a craft store, but don’t come
counter drilled, so you may need to do this yourself. My experience has been that these bead
head dry flies work on the dead drift or skated
across the surface.

Hackle: Grizzly
Head: Brown thread
Notes and fishing instructions:
Yes this is two flies in one. This style was named
by my best fishing buddy, who upon first seeing
the pattern correctly predicted that “it will sweep
up all of the trout on the stream.” It is tied backwards in order to prevent the emerger part from
interfering with hook set. The first versions had
this problem. There are a couple of ways to accomplish this pattern. The first is to tie the
emerger and add it to the hook before tying the
nymph. The alternative is to tie in the emerger underbody as you tie the nymph, then complete the
fly by turning the hook around in the vise to tie the
emerger.
Basic instructions: Turn the hook around backwards and tie the head at the start of the hook
bend. Tie in the Emerger underbody, or completed emerger. Tie in two pieces of wing case
material and dub the thorax. Take the two win
case pieces around either side of the underbody/emerger, and tie down. Tie in tail and wire
before dubbing backwards to the eye of the hook.
Wrap gold wire back and tie off thread. Head cement this junction as well as the nymph head. The
emerger part can be created by tying in the CDC
and over wrapping the butts as you dub the body,
tie in the hack tip and wrap 4-5 times, followed by
tieng off the hackle and creating the head.

Branham’s Epoxy Mini Puff

Hook: Saltwater, standard shank, 1 to 8

Eyes: Stainless steel bead chain
Wing: Calf tail, crystal flash. Natural or dyed grizzly hackle tips
Head: Kreinik’s Fly Tyers Ribbon or colored or
dyed epoxy
Overcoat: Epoxy
Note:
In the late 1980’s when I was trying to design my
first fly, the Epoxy Charlie, the Mini Puff was another fly that I was tying a lot of and had the possibility of becoming a very good epoxy adaptation.
“Como comenzar a pescar con mosca y no desesperarse en el intento”
Gerardo Herreros
224
The Epoxy Mini Puff was developed almost side
by side with the Epoxy Charlie. I used flash a bou
initially for the head and then progressed to crystal flash and finally the Kreinik’s Fly tyers Ribbon. I
used these materials and coated them with clear
epoxy.
As I became more involved in epoxy flies, I was
shown how to dye epoxy, using Rit dye and 70%
isopropyl alcohol and to tint the epoxy using
enamel paint. This led to just tying on the bead
chain eyes and applying either a tinted or dyed
epoxy to give a solid head of epoxy that was either semi-transparent or opaque. NOTE: See article on “Working with Epoxies” for exactly how to
do this.
I never really promoted this fly but it was carried
by Kaufmann’s Streamborn while I was tying for
them. I never sent a sample to Umpqua so they
did not put it under contract.
Generally bead chain eyes are used but you can
use bar bell eyes but the fly will sink like a rock.
Numerous colors can be used. I generally tied this
fly with a pink head (either the Fly Tyer’s Ribbon
over coated with clear epoxy) or a tinted pink epoxy. The pink had either a pink or tan wing. The
brown was either a gold head coated with clear
epoxy or a tinted brown solid epoxy head. The
white had a silver head or a colored white head.
The tan had either a pearly head or a dyed tan
solid epoxy head.
Other colors may be used to include a chartreuse
head with either a chartreuse or white wing, orange head with either a brown or tan wing, brown
head with an orange wing and an all yellow.
All of these colors can be tied with either a Kreinik’s Fly Tyer’s Ribbon head coated with clear
epoxy or a head of solid epoxy tinted or colored.
Either way, these are very effective flies.
If you really want to get fancy, add some very fine
pearl flask to either the dyed or colored epoxy.

strikes.

no body (optional) and no peacock herl.
Lefty says that the body is not necessary but is an
option if you so desire.

LAS MOSCAS DE JIM TEENY
La Pheasant Tail podría ser una mosca que cumple con casi todos los requisitos de la Teeny Nymph, pero
no tiene la versatilidad de esta última, aún usando los mismos materiales, un anzuelo y pluma de la cola del
faisán de collar. Con las distintas variaciones que Jim ata de su mosca se puede pescar, y de hecho él lo
hace, todo tipo de peces. Sus moscas han pescado truchas, además de steelhead, marrones anádromas,
todos los salmones del Pacífico, salmón del Atlántico, por nombrar algunos de agua dulce. En agua salada
han pescado bonefish, tarpones, barracudas, permit, jack crevalle, entre muchos otros.
La técnica de atado de las moscas de Jim Teeny es sumamente simple. Se enrolla sobre la pata de un anzuelo para ninfas o moscas húmedas un mechón de fibras de la pluma de la cola de un faisán de collar, como queda dicho, y de color natural si se trata de una Teeny Nymph original. Se sujeta el mechón por su cabo al final de la pata del anzuelo, dejando unos tres milímetros del cabo como bajo cuerpo, enrollando el
mechón luego hacia delante dejando las puntas como patas / barbas de la mosca (ver foto Teeny Nymph
Original).
Tomando como base este concepto, se pueden hacer diferentes modelos de moscas, como streamers, salmoneras, para steelhead, o ninfas de todo tipo. El cuerpo base explicado en el párrafo anterior, se puede

repetir varias veces en un anzuelo de pata larga, por ejemplo, agregándole una cola antes y un ala después,
del mismo color de los cuerpos o con colores combinados, brillantes u opacos para steelhead y marrones
anádromas y colores más naturales para truchas residentes. Sería interesante probarlas también con nuestros dorados y taruchas. Si Jim pesca bien especies marinas de gran tamaño y combatividad no sería de extrañar el éxito que podría tener con nuestras especies autóctonas de agua dulce.

La misma Leech que las anteriores pero con cabeza de hilo rojo simulando un huevo.
Teeny Streamers
A la Leech se le agrega un ala y algunos brillos y se produce un streamer sumamente efectivo.

Si a los streamers o leeches los atamos con colores llamativos tenemos como resultado unas excelentes y
pescadoras moscas para steelhead.
