3 Flies

Three flies painted in a monochromatic color for a Tuesday post.  The first is a Stimulator with heavy hackles, a pair of  hopper wings overlapped with white hair.  A killer pattern for all types of fish in many types of water conditions.
Next is the good old big fat Humpy fly.  Also painted in a monochrome color.  Heavy use of hackles and ribbed foam body make this a great strong current fly.   Better have some big flies on the water to use this fat little guy or the fish might just snub you.
And the final monochrome fly for this Tuesday is the V.A Wasp.  With a fat foam but and use of hackles.  Adding a few slight wings and plastic barbel eyes provide for a realistic fly pattern for warm water flies.
All the inspiration for these flies come from the http://www.barbosconmosca.com/ blog.
