The first, The Eyed Snake Fly, was originally tied for surf casting for stipers and features a cylindrical body of spun deer hair, an ostrich herl tail, and the unusual addition of dumbbell eyes to make the fly float lower on the surface.
These should appeal to bucket mouths and big toothies.
The third fly is an old Irish salmon fly called The Gosling.
Hook - 3x long #6
Tail - 4 pheasant tail fibers
Rib - gold tinsel
Body - caddis green ice dub
Hackle - orange saddle
Collar -chartreuse mallard flank
This fly was designed to imitate a large swimming mayfly nymph and as such is not limited here to just trout and salmon but a full range of predators. Anyways... this is what I've been doing for the last week, while winter reasserts itself for one final gasp.
