I got a little tired of saying "purple and black tube fly", or "olive and orange tube fly", so I named them after my favorite guitar players. I am not claiming these as my original designs, there is nothing unique or innovative...but they catch fish, are easy to tie, and swim well.
These are "simplified" versions using Arctic fox, a single tube, (add the Junction tube after tying). I usually fish these patterns tied with Temple Dog, Jungle Cock and everything I think steelhead deserve, although I have tied these commercially for The Great Lakes Fly Fishing Co, they fish fine and are considerably less than the $12-$15 each I would need for the dressed up versions!
I tie sparse flies, with a broad silhouette, they sink well and move more than heavier dressings. To do this requires the wing to be supported by something, such as hackle, UV Polar Chenille, etc. A typical tying sequence would be: hackle, wing 1, flash, hackle, wing 2, collar and cone. I hope you enjoy tying and fishing any, or all of these.
