Becker, so you are saying too many colors because in nature there typically is only a color or two represented?


If so, please don't forget that we're talking about colossal hatchery rainbows with a bonus genetic predisposition to eating bright crap on top of the standard issue rainbow stupidity.

yeah... that looks just like the senyo steak and eggs fly

funny didn't you jump on someone for not giving credit / "ripping off" a fly?

honestly...
your heads are crowded
the red thread is not a good choice... and there is way too much of it

Ramcatt the fish I have caught think the red thread is a good choice so I guess thats all the really matters. By the way Greg Senyo did not come up with the steak and eggs he stole that pattern from a guy he thought was dying of cancer. The guy ended up beating cancer and is a survivor. Actually he has taken quite a few flies from other guys in Ohio and passed them off to Orvis. He is a real piece of work and I don't think too much of him.

My point was going to be that there is nothing natural about any of the colors so why not use them together. Then I thought, ever see a salmon fly? At any rate, I think you get the point. And as you said, chromadome.

Letaras, you might want to give props to Tod Kaday.
Back when Tod Kaday first started sharing his crystal meth pattern, color selections of the material were limited to what the local shops had on hand. Metallic colors in blue, red and gold is what quite a few locals were using, many splitting colors to make a two toned fly. Metallic blue became a widely use version of the fly. Half red, half blue was also popular.

Crystal meths are great. They were basically a new take on the sucker spawns using the new materials at the time. I was not sure who came up with the crystal meth but they work so who ever it was did a great job. I put a twist on the crystal meth. By combining two hot flies into one "smash up" fly. It has really been catching fish so that is all I care about. I always get a sense of acomplishment when I tie a fly that catches a lot of fish for me. Something you make yourself always feels better to catch fish on.

Right on! Great creativity! Letaras you have a great mind for creation. Keep at it.

Just a thought, did you ever consider wrapping some dubbing in figure 8s to cover up those thread wraps? Even better yet, You could tie down the braid with a lightly dubbed thread. It would really put the fly together well, a little more eye pleasing so to say. (not that it really matters, seeing how it cleans up as is ;) )

Yes, it was Todd during an evening at the vise while a student at Behrend College in Erie. He's presently a west coast steelheader.
That fly has put many fish on the bank for many fishermen.
So, Hats off to Todd.
BTW, nice twist on the fly.

Cool looking flies. Catching steel head and browns on them I think would be awesome. Do they work in low and clear water?

JohnnyUtah I may try your idea. Also I want to point out those where the first prototypes I sent to a friend of mine who fishes and takes pictures for me. He took them as soon as he got them. I actually have cleaned up the thread work and made the red thread less bulky and it has a smoother transition. By the way I liked your ultra egg idea. I took that and put a spin on it. Instead of the yarn and the steelhead orange glowbug yarn as the dot. I used a orange bead covered it with my glow in the dark yarn added an egg veil. Also I added flash under it like a halo egg. You can fish it in the day or night now.
