This is my pattern on the Slumpbuster:
John Barr's Olive Slumpbuster

Tied By: "Boss Steb"

Hook: Size 4–12 Tiemco 5263 (mine were 8 and 10)
Thread: Olive 70-denier Ultra
Thread Cone: Gold tungsten, size 4–6 (large), size 8–10 (medium)
Rib: Chartreuse Ultra Wire (Brassie)
Body: Peacock Sparkle Braid
Wing/Tail: Olive pine squirrel
Collar: Olive pine squirrel


Comments:
I highly recommend the John Barr book, Barr Flies. The best place other than the book to find a description on how to tie this fly is at www.charliesflyboxinc.com/flybox
You can use any combination of Diamond Braid ir Sparkle braid and squirrel hair.

On the Elk Creek Caddis:
Size 14 caddis hook 2x heavy, 2x short
1/8 or 7/64 gold bead head
Caddis Cream Spirit River Dubbing
Brown dubbing of any shade dubbed as a head

Tie these by the dozens. Quick fly that catches fish on all PA tribs.

tie up a dozen and get them to me by Monday...

on your tag line...maybe some cowbell would help your problem...I know it works on my FEVER...

What are you using as the sac "look a like" it has some quality like a deep diving lafontaine caddis...but different...if you catch my drift...

I don't have the time to tie up any extras. Can't tie enough for just me.


Simple recipe, just wanted to share it.

sz 14 nymph hook.
3 10/0 red glass beads from a craft store.
egg colored egg yarn tied in very sparse.


That's it.

ry,

Nice pattern, did you just tie the yarn near the eye and leave the rest as a loose tag end? Picture is a little fuzzy.

PS.. flies are in the mail!!

Yep that's it. I took the end of my yarn and just took a small pinch and pulled so it looks sparse. Tied up just like a ESP but without tying in the other side. Just make sure you put a small clump of dubbing, or a bunch of thread at the bend of the hook so the beads don't fall off.

That's it.


Try omitting the yarn and a bead or two and putting a splot of hot glue over the glass bead(s), very realistic looking egg.

I think the egg yarn is there to give the eggs a "milking" quality.

I tie an egg sack imitation with a few wraps of estaz and a sheath, much like Ryan's.
