I've never used one, and this is the first I've heard them mentioned by anyone but my uncle, but his quote is "I can catch every native in the danged state with a pickett pin". I always just thought he was exaggerating, but from the looks of those I can see some reason in this statement. I might have to check them out on my next outing, whenever the hell that gets to be.

I ran into a nice older gentleman on clarks a few years back, rainy day, late in the season, getting to be about the time when the trout there have learned the major patterns from the fly index. He was fishing just up stream of me, and was having a red letter day, when he came down to leapfrog me I asked and he said it was a picket pin. Was the first time I had heard of it,after that I have kept a few in the box, have had success with them as a wet fly, and even dead drift as a nymph.

I used the search engine on my computer and came up with this:

Picket Pin
hook Mustad 9671
hook size(s) 8-12
thread black
tail brown hackle fibers
rib brown hackle, palmered
body peacock herl
wing white-tipped squirrel tail
head peacock herl

notes: Another fly that looks like nothing but catches lots of fish

Hope it helps.

I have just recently started tying and am currently taking a class. Funny, this fly is in the syllabus to tie in a couple weeks.
