The John Deere consists of a jig hook, painted green, large yellow eye. Olive marabou tied in the length of the shank, forming a tail 2/3 the length of the shank. Tie in Olive chenille and wrap to behind the weight. Wrap the chenille forward and tie off. Whip finish.
I need a pattern for a John Deere which is popular at Bennett Spring, Missouri. The fly is tied on a jig hook with a green head and yellow eyes but I don't know the colors of the body and tail. Surely appreciate any assistance.
Requesting the Ballathie House fly recipe. Stayed for ~10 days and had a marvelous time! Beautiful fly displayed in the bar and would love to recreate for a shadowbox for myself. Did not have enough time to preplan & schedule a reservation on the beat along the river Tay...though it wasn't 200 feet from our room window. Cannot recommend the hotel enough for any traveler! Incredible food & staff attention!!!
do you have the pattern for the lithuanian prince streamer ? It is a Lake George landlocked salmon fly.
would greatly appreciate it.
I was wanting to purchase some Tomsu's Supreme Hopper flies. Can you help me accomplish that? Thanks, Dewayne Findley
What kind of fly are we talking about? I can find a dry fly called Henshaws Old Faithful, which has a green body. The materials are:
Hook: Size 14 2XL Dry Fly Hook
Thread: 6/0 black
Tail: Fibers from pheasant rump feather
Body: Peacock green chenille
Wing: Pheasant Rump Feather
Hackle: Light Blue Dun
Have you got a pattern for an "Old Faithful" ? Help please . . .
Do you have a pattern for an "Old Faithful"? I believe that it is tied from a breast feather of a cock pheasant and the body is sort of an olive green. Thanks!
