Yep, that's all you need. I like to tie them with cream colored thread for the body to imitate the females, which are lighter. I use a black marker to darken if they are eating the males.

Info and pics of trico naturals.

I actually prefer to use Al's trico: Link.

It's tied in reverse, as you can see in the picture. I like to use a few turns of grizzly hackle. I find this pattern to be a better match than the one you described, though they both work just fine.

Beware that the tully is pretty warm right now. It's currently too warm to safely catch and release trout. If you're going to catch them on the tully, go ahead and keep them.

Here's a thread with more info on that.

More discussion on the tully's temps in this thread.

And one more on when streams are too warm to safely fish for trout.

See those threads for discussion on fishing thermal refuge, which cacoosing is. I am of the opinion that it's NOT okay to do, as are most fly fishers.

The water is cooler there, but the fish are stacked so as not to die. It's not a very sporting thing to do, and it's still potentially lethal to the fish.

The fly pattern is pretty easy:

Tie the thread body back toward the bend of the hook. Put a wisp of dark dubbing down, then turn grizzly hackle over it. Return thread to the eye and finish. No videos, to my knowledge.

Check those threads for a very recent discussion on the effects of fishing thermal refuges. No need to rehash it here, but those fish are stacked there because they are very stressed from the warm waters elsewhere.

Imagine a room that's packed with people, where there is only sufficient oxygen in one corner. They're climbing over each other in that corner.

Don't make them start doing push ups.

allow me to quote myself:

If the water is cold in the morning, but rises to near lethal or lethal temps in the day, its inappropriate.

If the main stem of the water is too hot, and the fish seek refuge in the place where a cold trib flows in, its inappropriate.


One way will certainly kill them via stress from enviroment and then being hooked and played, no matter how gentle you try to be. The other way is not only potentially more lethal, but its unsporting. THey're all stacked up there because if they chose to go elsewhere, they die.

A lot of folks (think fly fishing purist) look down on harvest in general, however I fully support it. A recurring theme for me on DHALO streams is fish and harvest or rest the stream. To catch and "release to die" is simply a waste.

The tully is a good place to keep trout from the big white trucks will bring more!

Yes it is. Jay has directed you to very useful information on the subject. Simply read those threads.

ok even tho it is warm, i did read the thread and i believe what tim robinson was saying, even tho peoples opinion is it is no sportsman like, it gives me a chance to practice fishing size 24 and 22 tricos, and like other people said the white truck comes to dump more off, and tco recommends fishing cacoosing area cause off the cold water
i think if u take ur time to be carefulk wit the trout it is ok,

That's simply not true.

Read post #5 for an explanation as to why.

If you choose to be an unethical fisherman despite knowing better, do so. I and many others will choose not to assist you in it. Good luck.
