Foam BWO

Hook:           #12-#16 Dry Fly

Thread:        Olive 6/0

Tail:              7-10 Microfibbets (I use fibers from a paintbrush.)

Underbody:  Olive Superfine Dubbing

Overbody:    Black Foam

Wing:           White Poly Yarn (I use EP Fibers.)

Hackle:         Natural Dun, Trimmed Flat on Bottom (The color is not super important.
                               Something dun or light-ish will work. I like it barred.)

Legs:            Small Black and White Barred

Notes:          After tying in the tail, I attach the overbody, dub the underbody, and then

                               pull the overbody over. I segment it with 4 or so turns of thread and

                               then finish tying it in at the head. Then I add in the rest of the fly.

Caddis Larva​

Hook:           #14-#18 Scud 

Thread:        Red 6/0

Bead:           White Tungsten, Sized to Hook
Body:           Light Hare's Ear, Brushed Out

Overbody:    Silver Flashabou

Legs:            Partridge, 1 or 2 Wraps

Note:            I finish with some extra thread wraps to create a hot spot at the head.​ Also,

                               you can't see the overbody in this picture. I tie the flashabou in, then

                               dub the body, and then I just pull it over and rib it with 3 or 4 wraps

                               of thread for segmentation.

 

 

 

Simple Pheasant Tail​

Hook:           #14-#18 2XL Nymph 

Thread:         Brown 6/0

Bead:            Gold or Copper Tungsten, Sized to Hook

Tail:              Natural, Olive, or Black Pheasant Tail
Body:           Natural, Olive, or Black Pheasant Tail

Wing Case:  Red or Silver Flashabou

Note:            This is a super simple pattern, just tie the pheasant tail fibers in at the tail

                               and then wrap it forward. Before tying the pheasant tail in, I tie

                               the flashabou in approximately where I want the back of the wing

                               case to start. Then I tie in the pheasant tail, wrap it forward, tie it

                               off, fold the flashabou forward, tie it down, put a couple wraps to

                               make it face backward, then whip finish. Then I just clip the 

                               flashabou off to make a little tag.

Tail:              Coq de Leon Dark Pardo Fibers
Body:           Thread Body covered with UV Resin

Note:            This is also a super simple pattern. I use the Veevus thread, tie in the

                               Coq de Leon fibers, then just build a tapered body and whip

                               finish. I finish it with a good coat of UV Resin.

Note:            This is yet another super simple pattern. Sometimes I rib the pattern, but

                               not always. I switch up colors and either use the peacock colored

                               Ice Dub or herl. Basically, whatever I feel like at the time.
