Those are some good looking streamers. And you're right- throwing em for warmwater species is cool but using them effectively in the rivers is a whole different story. Been streamer fishing for a while now and still feel like a noob on the rivers. I am in awe of really good streamer fishermen. You can definitely save money tying versus buying if you keep it simple. Not only that, catching on your own stuff is just the bees knees. But, you cannot save money tying versus mooching haha. Mooching is hard to beat.

Thing is sweet, what would you be throwing that at? Pike/Bass? I'm sure an angry brown would take a swipe at it this fall.

I am looking forward to getting on the vice again, like most people I find it difficult to sit down in the summer months and crank out some patterns or keep up on my practicing.

I had pike in mind when I tied that. Like you, I haven't tied much since Spring.

A couple of simple ties that have earned a permanent place in my boxes.

The white/tan streamer: I have been throwing these in a variety of sizes in warm water ponds this year. Every time it catches something. Sunfish, crappie, bass can't seem to leave it alone. It is tied with a blend of tan wool and pearl ice dub. With or without the bead. It always rides hook up. I have done the body in pearl mylar. But this one is dubbed with claret ice dub and pearl ice dub. It looks translucent in the water with just a hint of flash.

Marabou streamer: wing feather for a tail. maybe some red marabou fibers to dress it up. Mylar body and a wing of marabou. The pic is of a N Platte special color combo. But I tie it in white/pink/olive with a red tail as well. I have been tying and fishing this for several years.

Cool little rainbow. The upper C was loaded with little bows last sat 2-3"ers. We caught about 30 fish and at least 12 where bows.

Default The FF Show last weekend got me inspired again.

Been back at it at the vice. There were some great tyers there showing off some really cool streamer patterns and different materials they use and how to use them. Made some adaptations of my own, borrowing a few of their ideas, a few ideas from tried and true patterns, etc. Came up with these, I plan to tie similar flies in olive and black. I think they'll do pretty well around here....
