The RS2

I was tying a bunch of these for an upcoming fishing trip and decided to photograph a few for the blog. I dont tie them with traditional materials but I like to substitute the microfibett tails with moose body hairs and the fluffy wing with zlon. So here's the few that I tied up.


Grey


Black


Olive


Olive Bi-color


Baetis


Cream


Tan



Tan Bi-color


Brown

I like fishing these flies just under the surface using a 9 ft 6X leader and some tiny split shot 15-18 inches above the fly.

Using your imagination, there's more colors and color combinations that can be tied. Try using different materials such as pheasant and turkey tails.

Thanks for looking!

I really like the Tan Bi-Color. All great looking flies though....I'll have to tie some up soon.
