Well, it has been a long damn time since I have posted anything on this blog. So, I figured I could contribute something worth while- a fly recipe. Constantly I have people emailing or asking me if I have any patterns I could share? Sure, I have a bunch. Many of which I don't need Joe Copycat hustling on, this kinda pathetic shit is happening way to frequently across the board these days. This pattern below is a take on another pattern which is called the "Orange Blossom", I have no idea who tied that pattern- but it was a good idea & im not taking credit for inventing this one. The pattern below is demonstrated in a step by step photo sequence. This pattern can be tied in whatever size you feel inclines to tie- fishes well for Trout, warm water species & migratory species.
First off- I am using a Daichii 2220 streamer hook, any heavy long streamer hook works. No need for heavy thread here, use 6/0 Uni. Place large gold cone on hook as well. Secure just in front of hook bend.
Congrats-all done! Now go fishing :)
