Apart from first-hand information how else do you track down original designs and patterns for your research? Either way, keep them coming Striblue.

I have been playing around with mylar tubing using it the way hackle feathers are for deceivers. Basically the tube as the body with various collar types. The effect is very nice but a little too delicate of a fly. I know I have seen this tie before but I cannot recall where. Any suggestions?

When i bought the book Flies for bass and panfish, i pretty much memorized it, cover to cover. I clearly remembered Waterman's Silver Outcast and that the author did not tie it with jungle cock. I'm also making the assumption that the author (Farrow Allen/Dick Stewart) tied the original pattern. You don't see many classic flies from the Everglades with jungle cock, either, since the capes are expensive and probably were not readily available. So that's why i made the assumption that the original Waterman's Silver OUtcast was not tied with jungle cock. Just an assumption, and nothing more.
Of course, you can call your flies whatever you want...but once you start naming names and giving credit, they should be tied "accurately". There's no question about it...every one of them can be "improved" or modified so it best fits our style of fishing. Some are changed for the better, and jungle cock certainly makes a prettier Striblue's Silver Outcast.

It's mostly fresh water patterns but there's a few saltwater pages as well. It's a collection of flies from tiers around the world...but mostly in the U.S. Every one of them is tied emmaculately, and Hans is a master at tying original patterns. If anyone is interested in seeing where you and your flies stand among a few of the best then check it out. Seeing other's people's flies will make you a better tier!
