Posts Tagged ‘BLEW ON BLUE SH’

This will be a selection of various patterns for waters in the greater Yellowstone National Park area in September. Besides fishing the Madison River outside of the park, Michael wants to visit some of the other locations in the park that he has not been to. This LINK provides an overview of some of those places…and these are the REGULATIONS for fishing in Yellowstone National Park…None of these patterns use lead or lead sub. in their construction…

THREAD: Veevus 16/0, Black

BODY: UV2 Dyed Purple Peacock

RIB: UTC Silver Wire – SM

BEAD: Plummeting Tungsten Bead, Purple, sized to hook

I first tied some of these soft hackles up back in 2014 because I like to use peacock and partridge SH’s on high elevation lakes in the Eastern Sierras. I have also used the natural peacock and partridge soft hackle on various stretches of the Madison River from Ennis up to Raynolds Pass with success in the early Summer and Fall. I have a very strong suspicion that these purple guys are going to take a lot of nice Trout on this upcoming trip…

This is a variation on Kelly Galloup’s $3,00 Bridge Serendipity using a wide gape heavy hook and the “Special JuJu”  Grizzly Krystal Flash. I don’t know exactly why, but this Grizzly Krystal Flash, incorporated into nymph and midge patterns, can really make a great day of Trout fishing…

So this is a variant on a Montana Fly Co. pattern that I wanted to include in my selection of attractors to use on the Madison and some other waters when Michael and I go to Montana. Serendipities can mimic a great number of bugs in the biomass and are very useful sub-surface searching patterns. I employ them on moving waters wherever we go…
