I know there are some fellow bloggers out there that like to tie up and use Bombers to catch some beauty trout. I first heard of this fly from BrkTrt of Small Stream Reflections. I too have grown to love this fly for fishing Brookies. I also am a big fan of chucking out my Castle Rock Killer pattern to some hungry Browns. So this got me thinking,"Why not combine the two and see what happens." Here is a quick photo step by step of the fly that was created. Running low on hackle I was forced to use larger than usual feathers. It ended up a little fluffier than I was going for, but I look forward to seeing how it works.
This is another pattern I came up with . It is tied on a size 14 Hook. Does anybody else out there use the thread to hide the shine of the hook. I do this because it seems to me trout will see this as it looking more like a leg or abdomen instead of a shiny hook. I usually try to use a natural looking color for thread. Green seems to be my go to color.
Until Next Time...........Tight Lines to All !!!!
