I like the addition of the hackle. Bet the mountain fish have seen a lot of weenies. The addition of the hackle might just make them think it is not what they fell for the last time.

Thanks. That was my thinking. I think the worm that this immitates has little whiskers on it so I figure this might give me a better shot. The great thing about flies is that even if they are used to seeing them, the color gets em anyway...usually. :biggrin:

Laugh if you wish but i have never fished a green weenie! But I do like the palmered version shown above.

I haven't fished it much but I figure this one might work on the tailwaters too. I have limited income so I tie with whatever I have on hand. I do want to buy some white chenille next time I'm up.

I like that. Kinda like a cross between the wooly bugger and green weenie. I think it's a winner... Let us know how it works! I also like the long tail, I may try done like that but with no bead head :)

BlueRaiderFan 01-19-2013 09:38 PM

Will do. I have only fished the normal one but wanted some buggers and my only choices were this, brown and pink...I really need to buy some white and green chenile. :biggrin:

I think I'll try to Palmer the pink one but first I need to hit up that dance club downtown, seduce a hot chick and then while she is sleeping cut the hot pink grizzly hackle from her hair....:eek:

Looks like it would work to me...It never hurts to try and experiment.

Have your ever tried crackle backs? They work fabulous during flow transitions on tailwaters. Although, I have never used them in the mountains
