Cascade variant.  Purple pheasant tail for wing and burnt orange over the yellow hackle.

I'll call this one of my own in so far as I never seen one like it. Wish I had used a few sprigs of black crystal flash in the wing .

Still playin around. Not happy with the result but it looks shrimpy enough to try on the specks maybe.

First fly since the swap and tried to form the body with deer hair. Not happy with the hackle and forgot the rib. Will play with it some til I get what I'm looking for.

This one a bit better. Used calf tail on it and a thicker( too thick) whisker. Need to find or order those boars bristols or wreck all my hackle feathers. Getting there. Not giving up til I think it's clean looking enough.

Simple GP or tippet shrimp variation. Looks like it should play well.

Might be getting a little bent on muddlers but I do like the look of this pattern.

Thanks Roland I used a pattern I found here .

With a moose mane wing and the color as an over wing which I would prefer I paid more attention to. I like the variation though. Silver flash and black flash body with small oval silver rib and black hackle throat.

Variation of a GP. All pheasant except for orange part of throat.

Not sure if this would make a better fall or early season GP but I like it anyway.

Another variation of shrimpy to toss in a river. Hope it will work! The claret under the body is an inverted GP crest I thought would look leggy.
