Size 12 orange and olive Twin Lakes Special. I have caught most species of fresh water fish with this fly/ color combination. This fly is a wooly bugger but instead of wraping the hackle the lenght of the body, the hackle is wrapped collar style.

Twisted tippet, can you make an SBS on that pattern just for me please? Gillchaser can you do the same on yours please? Or if you guys have posted them anywhere please send me the link? I am new to fly tying but those flies look awesome, also haven't seen any of those/anything similar down here, will love to see if the fish also haven't seen them and maybe I catch a few by surprise! ;)

yep; we need them in a seperate thread under fly tying; some good flies will be lost in this thread. Man, those little tiny centipede legs are hard to tie!The twin lakes special seems interesting as does the brown hackle peacock and others I've forgotten the name. good stuff men!-p-

Always gold, indeed. Maybe it just seems compatible with the teawater?

And I'm changing my vote ..I'm allowed this is a free country ....Pearow tied me a. Dozen few years back ....they are so deadly on all trout they should be outlawed .. :evil :evil .
The fly is one of the older patterns in existence ..they went out of sight for awhile because you could not get jungle **** feathers in this country ...the Jassid .....

The idea of fishing with only one fly forever got me thinking about a short story that G.E.M. Skues wrote back in 1930 something. You fans of the fly fishing literature will be familiar with Skues and his important role in the early years of nymph fishing writing. But this is a somewhat different bit of prose from George....

Go to this web site: steveojai.tripod.com. Click on fly box at the top of the page then go to bugger patterns and click on Docs Twin Lakes Special. My personal favorite is the orange and olive tied with Jay Fair's flashy short shuck body material. I do not know why but this fly works better than a wooly bugger.

I could probably be relatively happy with any one of these:

Yellow Humpy
Royal Coachman
Griffiths Gnat
Black Ant

if you're asking the one fly we could only use in both warm and cold water, for me, it'd have to be a #10 olive woolly bugger.


This is a good one -- I couldn't argue with it.

Thankfully, I'm not forced to pick one fly for everything. ;)

My #1 fly would be basically anything with a marabou tail -- most patterns with this seem to catch a lot of species.
