Default Tying Challenge: Week 6

Ok, for this week's challenge, let's leave it as wide open as possible and tie our favorite terrestrial pattern(s). We did ants a few weeks ago so I would suggest generally doing something other than ants although if you have a killer pattern you did not share then let's see it!!!

Was hoping to do some tying yesterday, but things got crazy. I'll recycle this one which I have posted before in case this week continues to be too hectic and I don't get to it.

My Parachute Yellow Jacket: Trout love it, esp when the water is high and off color a little bit or it is raining...

Ok, I finally got some time at the tying desk last night, and man am I rusty. Didn't pay near enough attention to detail, like I normally do.

Here are a few hoppers I threw together....

Caterpillar



Beetle



I haven't fished the caterpillar, but the beetle works.

Inchworm



The last two work, trust me.

I like to fish grasshoppers. This is the best hopper I know of (if I say so myself )

Hook: Tiemco 200R 14 & up
Thread: 6/0 color to match body
Post: white poly yarn
Hackle: usually grizzley or brown (or both)
Rib: copper wire
Tail: that's right a very short tail - deerhair
Body: tan super-fine dubbing (or lime green)
Under-Wing: deerhair
Over-Wing: turkey tail (x2 on larger flies)
Legs: Pheasant Tail tied in knot (intentionally tied bow-legged)

I grew up drowning grasshoppers and also tie this pattern in lime green and green deerhair. It floats like a cork with the deerhair under-wing and I think it gives it a distressed look - but that may just be me. Anyway, the Speckled Trout will jump out of the water to hit it!

I was flipping through an old tying book last night and saw some nice looking European style nypmphs. The ones tied on the big curved scud hooks. I think some people call them czech nymphs??

Does anyone here tie those?
Might be something different for week 7.
