    Sparkle Spundun Green Drake

    I no longer curse Craig Mathews and his damn Sparkledun. Even though I’ll never be able to tie a proper one, these work well enough and I don’t have to worry about about the wing torquing around the shank, no matter how firmly I think I’ve wrapped it; plus, these have built-in PFDs. hook -...

    Shakey Bealy (variant)

    Subbed sharptail for ruffed grouse since I have none of the latter; I’d be surprised if it makes a difference. A pretty basic pattern; I much prefer the Ice Dub thorax over the original Krystal Flash collar. A mainstay in Yellowstone, especially in the fall when big trout run up from Hebgen...

    Muddled Three Dollar Dip

    Put a full collar on Nick Nicklas’ Serendipity variation. One of the benefits of using pronghorn - you can spin it with thread you wouldn’t normally use and not break it (sometimes). hook - WFC Model 11 #12 thread - Danville 6/0 tobacco brown rib - small wire gold body - tying thread...

    Pink Michigan Muddler

    Pookie’s stablemate. Not sure if I used a beat up piece of pronghorn or overcooked it in the dye bath but some of those tips are gnarly. hook - WFC Model 4 #10 thread - UTC 140 black tail - moose body rib - tying thread body - pronghorn dyed pink (1 Tbs Rit Fuchsia/4 cups water) wing - Congo...

    Softhackle Spundun Carnage Green Drake

    The Lemon Ice foam (2mm thick) is closer in color to Eastern Green Drakes I’ve seen than any olive, so I sliced off some 1mm strips; that never creates uniform thickness for me but it works well enough. hook - WFC Model 28 #10 thread - Danville 6/0 light olive core - 15 lb mono tail - moose...
