Original Fly Patterns

The following fly patterns have been designed by myself and represent some of my personal favorites.
 

Dry Flies

Turck TarantulaTurck Tarantula
An all-purpose and very versatile attractor pattern. It works well dry or wet, twitched or dead drifted, in moving and still water. Especially good at attracting large trout.

Cinnamon Power AntPower Ant
You'll never realize how much trout love ants unless you fish them all the time. The Power Ant is, to my knowledge, first attractor ant pattern and can be fished anytime you would fish a general attractor.

Snake DrakeSnake Drake
This Wulff style attractor pattern was designed to better simulate a variety of mayfly duns than was otherwise possible with existing attractor patterns. It is best described as a blend of match-the-hatch and attractor pattern design.

Compower DunCompower Dun
Based on the outstanding Comparadun pattern, the Compower Dun extends the usefulness and fishablity of the original using a combination of slightly different materials and construction techniques.

Note to skeptics: While most of the above patterns are undisputedly original, some, inspired by existing patterns, are important variations. Whether you consider such variations truly original or not, they are significantly distinct enough to, in my opinion, bear the "original" label.
