Yeah LGuthru
Buck bugs work good.
I usually tie them on small tubes and they do good
for me. especially in June when Caddis flies are out.
Once I remember getting to a pool in a small brook and
I had a bass bug - a size 6 PMac bug - a big bug. I dangled
in the water while I was getting out something better and the
best trout of the trip nailed it. Never know!
In a swap a few years ago there was a bug - I called it The Brat
for some reason. It was on a hook but it worked great on a small
tube again in caddis time. I use it often now - made the swap worthwhile.
Time to put together some killers

I use a lot of no name tube flies that
take an 18 or 20 spade end hook.
other anglers laugh at first but I get
my turn latter!
Just a couple of wraps of dubbing around a
very small tube.
A 16 to 20 black klink works good also.
Enjoy the last of winter

Muddler size 2-14
mickey finn 4-12
gold ribbed hares ear 8-16
Black and reddish brown leech 6-12
stimulators 2-12

these flies make up 95% of my trout fishing. Throw in royal coachman wet

most times a size 10 muddler is the only fly I fish.

For big browns I am really liking some articulated streamers... Galloup's Sex Dungeon is an awesome fly... I make some modifications to suit my fishing but it's a great fly

Tastes certainly have changed somewhat since I first posted to this thread a few years ago

1. Blk Ghost RS Muddler
2. Articulated streamers ( look up Kelly Galloup)
3. Stimulators
4. Hedgehog
5. Invincible Ghost

I have scaled down my fly boxes considerable over the years and really only use about a dozen or so different patterns for all my fishing.

What size ranges are you tying for the elk hair? I'm relatively new to the NS fishing scene, but I'm used to tying them in 12-18 for cutties and rainbows out west. Too small?

Natural deer hair with either orange or brown hackle seem to work the best for me.

No need of tail but use a green or red tag on them.
