Fly Fishing: Can you get out?

Here, the cold has arrived, without the moisture for awhile, so the previously high waters should be dropping and clearing. The steelhead are there.  I have my 2011 license/tags. Many cannot fish for months to come. Elsewhere, you enjoy year ’round fishing. Tying is always an option in anticipation of the coming season or outing. So, clear your head. Regroup. Shake off those silly, old ways and start the new year!

Fly Tying: Hackle Tip Flippers or Attractors

A couple years back, I wrote about a tube fly pattern for salmon that had ‘flippers’ as fluttering attractors. I recently came upon a similar attractor concept for a pattern tied by Brian Størup called a Potty PigBoth patterns utilize a hackle stem with most of the barbs stripped away and leaving a tip that with resistance must flutter about. This is a leaner appearance than many steelhead/tube patterns. This is worth a look see.

Note the badger hackle tips (tails) extending back. In the pattern below the shorter ‘flipper’ would provide the same fluttering attraction and is from a hackle tip trimmed.
