"Search,"  that very pale rectangle on the top right of your screen, is your friend.  

 

There have been zillions of patterns described here by hundreds, perhaps thousands, of fly tiers.  There are some tiers here who are regularly published in national magazines. Let's not get started by asking the Forum to regurgitate itself in one easy thread. 

 

Hang around, and see what you like.

+1 to what Brian says. It's usually best to search first to see if your question or inquiry has been answered elsewhere before proceeding. A good thread is one that offers content not before seen in other threads, or in a different light or focus.

Looking for some effective streamer patterns and materials to tie them with. Post pictures and your lots of materials!  

 

Hi you might want to narrow it by what you are fishing for and types of location 

 

yes you’ll find gabillions of entries but you might pull your hair out looking at posts that don’t apply to what you want to do

 

but search is worth a try. The search feature used to be better but it’s still ok

Probably a better way to search SOL is to use Google and for instance if looking for crab flies enter 

"Striperonline + crab flies" as your criteria.   You'll be presented with four or five top selections but under that click the text. " More selections from www.Stripersonline.com"    and you'll find a slew or related posts from there.

Not sure what you intend to fish for and where, but I've been having great success out west on clousers with a silver Hareline Polar Reflector Flash belly.

Everything I've thrown them at has eaten them, salmon, rainbows, bull trout, bass....

With different colored bucktail wings and reflector flash, the combos are endless.

Good luck,

SF
