Here is a list of Trout flies from members which they would not consider fishing without,  We ask each member to make a post with a pic of their fly and recipe.  This can be used as a quick reference for any new tier or fisherman to maximize their time on the water.

During the summer about half of my trout are on this Adams variant. I dead drift it 90% of the time, but it is also great swung or stripped under the surface.
At least 15 trout had it in their mouth before the picture,so it is a bit scruffy. I caught Brookies, Browns, and Bows this day all in about 200m of river.

Hook: Dry fly hook sizes 8- as small as you can tie.
Tail:  Brown hackle fibers.
Body: Adams color dubbing. Bury a few wraps of thread in to the dubbing for extra durability.
Wings: Either calf tail or goose shoulder split and tied upright.
Hackle: Grizzly,white, Light or brown dry fly hackle. Any of those colors have worked well for me.
Head: Small black or white thread head.

Here is a little all purpose dry fly.  It is a good imatation for spring stones and just about and caddis.  I tie a lot of these in natural deer hair with a black thread body, but it is worth while to tie a few in yellow, black, chartruse, green, orange, and olive.  It is a simple fly; just three or four stacks of deer hair, so it is a quick box filler.

Looks mighty fishy! Well done!
: Re: Trout
: emac January 04, 08:20AM
That is a great fly, I tried a few of those this season. Your tie is spot on, I bet the brookies loved them.
: Re: Trout
: rpen January 04, 08:59AM
Great tie! I'll have to add a couple to my box
: Re: Trout
: kbranch January 04, 09:24AM
you cannot sink the ausable bomber, very rugged dry fly, and yes the brookies love that fly as soon as the hatch begins.
: Re: Trout
: Tony January 04, 03:06PM
Nice fly there kbranch..is the body dubbed?
: Re: Trout
: kbranch January 04, 03:12PM
yes it is, I use hares ear plus- Rusty Orange, But any dry fly dubbing will work. I have tried the ausable bomber in different colors and rusty brown with white or chartreuse post have been the most productive on the brooks i frequent.

: Re: Trout
: kbranch January 04, 03:33PM

Right on guys, a couple patterns the trout won't be able to resist.
: Re: Trout
: the caddis March 04, 09:33AM
great tie pierce I just got some of the chinhilla zonker, that will have to be my first tie, I hope I have as much success as you ;)
: Re: Trout
: pierce14 March 04, 09:39AM
I think it's the chincilla that sells the fly(not really sure but I like how it looks), I could never catch anything on a regular muddler then I tried the zonker. Sold. Bass love it too, they hit it just as hard as the trout.
: Re: Trout
: backcountrycapers March 04, 03:03PM
Looks like a killer Dan.  Is that a  dubbed body?
: Re: Trout
: pierce14 March 04, 04:27PM
