Brown Bear Tackle Box Fly Patterns

Please read the patterns carefully before attempting to tie them.

This will help avoid frustration. I have tried to put the pattern down in order of construction and some of these can become complicated and time consuming.

Tip Yellow floss
Tail Golden Pheasant crest and tippet mixed
Ribbing Rear section - Oval silver tinsel
Body Rear section - dubbed light orange seal
Hackle Rear - Lemon coloured saddle hackle
Ribbing Front section - flat silver tinsel and french twist
Body Front section - Black floss
Hackle Front - Black heron palmered over the black floss. With Heron being hard to come by, one needs to substitute. A Black spey  or a large black saddle hackle could work.

Cheeks 4 jungle cock drooping
Notes This is one of many patterns I have found for this fly.
