I'm not a big believer in using fly patterns to imitate insects. It's better to learn styles to imitate different kinds of insects in certain stages, and then figure out which styles (like Comparadun for example) are suitable for which hatches. Then just tie something in that style using colors that seem to match the pictures.

Anyway, the short answer is no -- there aren't any fly pattern/recipes on this site. There are lots of other sites which cover that pretty well already.

"I'm not a big believer in using fly patterns to imitate insects."

Taken out of context, this is a pretty funny statement, especially from you, Jason. Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I seem to be on a streak of making statements that sound all wrong out of context... :)

You'll notice that I showed even more restraint on this one than the last one. As the trout say, "Once bitten...."

Pretty funny

Sorry Jason

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.
