A few streamers from the bench.
A few selections from The Bobbin Droppers. First, a pattern called "Matt's Llano Critter" from a shop in Texas. Was probably originally used for Bass, but has since become my go-to trout streamer lately. Second, a JJ's Special tied with barbell eyes so it rides hook-up (or, reverse). So, I'll reverse the Js and call it a JJ's Special instead of a "JJ's" Special. Lastly, some hare, hackle, wire, and chenille that my friend Satoshi Yamamoto (Leftyangler.blogspot.com) has named "Big Sky's Upside-Down Olive-Griz Zebra Monster Brown Warrior Sculpin." What a great name. Another couple of suggestions are hairy stinkers and frog farts.... I like them both.
Hope all of you had a chance to get out and fish, or at least tie a little bit here and there. Take care, sharp hooks, and keep warm! - Sky
