The one I wanted to try most, was a little fry pattern I've seen a couple times - once on youtube and once in a British fly fishing and tying mag. It's basically a flashy body, with big stick on eyes, and some form of feather flipped over from front to back, then ribbed into place. These were my first two attempts and both are reflecting my current rusty-ness at the vice ;)... they are tied on #12 nymph hooks.
It was a pattern that just really caught my eye as a possible success anywhere, but especially for those small stream brookies that are so fun to chase... or for the rainbow's on a local tailwater that get pounded with tiny flies all year long. This seemed like a "different" enough streamer that it could really work on those fish... Ill be trying to do up some more that are a little neater (for fun sake), though I dont think the fish will mind these :)
