Simple Madame "X".

Looking through my fly box, I realized I left out a great fly for warm days. It is the Madame "X". This is a simple way to tie this fly. 

Pictured here we have red and yellow.
Both great colors. 
1-Tie in color of choice at bend. 
2- Add tuft of elk hair for tail.












3-Add full length, may need
several wraps. 










4-Try to make even throughout. 




5-Add reverse tuft of elk. Wrap
backwards past elk hair, 








6-Fold elk back and
secure 1/4th way back.

Keep going.

7-Add lateral rubber legs. 


8-1/2 hitch and tip with
head cement.













Great in different colors!
I like elk for most floaters because the hair next to skin is hollow and floats very well.

Try it. This is a really great Idaho fly fishing fly--particularly for cutthroat.

Hard takes, tight lines and huge cutthroat to you all.

Tellico Nymph

"Tellico Nymph" contributed by "YellowStoneFly" at "Idaho Fly Fishers" blogspot. Call me nuts, but this eastern fly, which originated in western North Carolina, is a really great cutthroat trout fly. I do not know exactly what the trout think this fly represents, but my guess is a golden stonefly or yellow sally stonefly. The best sizes seem to be 10-16 and I personally like to tie them on a curved nymph hook with a fairly long shaft.

They are easy to tie and the materials are easy to obtain. Check out the tying instructions below and our post "The Perfect Fly":

Reverse tie black thread on the shank, then wrap in
pheasant tippet for the tail and trim off the residual.

Add a few strands of peacock hurl just in front of the
tail, wrap into place and trim the residual.

Next, apply bright yellow dubbing to your thread.

Wrap the dubbing toward eye and back again to the
tail so that it has somewhat of a "cigar" shape.

On the outside of the dubbing, wrap black thread evenly
toward the eye to form the thorax ribs.

Now swing the peacock hurl to the  head and then
secure with a few thread wraps. Leave a small gap
between the thorax and the eye for adding the hackle.
Trim the residual peacock hurl.

Snip off the remaining peacock hurl and tie in a
brown to red hackle feather at its small end.
Secure with a drop of cement and trim the
residual after the glue dries.

Now wrap the hackle several times, tie in and cover the
head with thread. Tie off with several half hitches and
then coat the head liberally with clear, glossy cement.
Bingo, you are done! If you would like more specifics about tying this particular fly, please leave a comment or email me directly. Sometimes I will substitute dark brown turkey biots for the pheasant tippet tail and pheasant tail strands for the peacock hurl. This is a great eastern/western nymph despite what you may read. Idaho fly fishing for cutthroat trout can be superb with the Tellico Nymph. Give it a try. Weight it; get it down to the fish and hang on. Best of luck fly fishing Idaho.

Hard takes, tight lines. Try this awesome fly anywhere--West or East.
