A big streamer for trout or toothies.

Although it's hard to see it, this fly incorporates the style of stinger hook (snipped treble hook circled in red) I have described in the running thread about stinger hooks...

One really good way to incorporate the hook in the rear of the fly is to tie a gamechanger type fly. It maintains all the movement with the "stinger" hook tied in the tail segment.

Decided to give Lively Legz a try. The trout liked it!

I was tying these for Panfish today in size 16 and they were not as Midge-like due to their size. Pretty sure no proud trout will eat them but Gills will.

If they catch bluegills, they will catch trout. :)

Last fly I tied probably could of trimmed it a little more but I’m sure the fish don’t mind .

Beautiful ties"nfrechet".

Every year one fly seems to be the one that works. One year it's a prince nymph, the next year it's PT. This year I had a lot of success with an Adams in size 14.

Thought I'd tie some smaller ones. (18) Don't often tackle something thing this small and complicated. It's really difficult to keep the proportions correct. Still working on that.

I love this pattern. It is a fast and easy tie even in really small sizes and when trout are sipping something small that you can't quite see (i.e. BWO or midges) this is the first thing I put on. Also tie it with with an olive body.

Rubber-legged stimulators in various sizes and color combinations.

Longing for dry-dropper season!
