|Great for Spring's High Water|
One thing, when tying this particular fly use very soft feather barbs. This is a soft hackle streamer and the softer barbs make the fly look more "alive" in the water as you float and strip it across the current. I like turkey breast feathers for my Montana Sparrows. The flies you see here are tied on a long shank 1-0 hook so they will be more of a local minnow meal for the larger trout. I use either brown or gray dubbing and a heavy gold wire for weight in order to get them down to the bigger fish.
|Tie on "tail", I use pheasant tail, and copper wire.|
|Add dubbing densly packed in a "cigar" configuration.|
|Wrap gold wire to eye and secure.|
|Add multiple soft feather barbs and half hitch head.|
