Personally I have great faith in ORANGE streamers when fishing for brown trout.

Those look awesome. Really buggy looking. Have you tried the new articulated shanks at LRO yet? They would be great for those patterns. Thanks for sharing.

That last one looks similar to a Kelly Gallop Goodie.

Olesmoke,
How do you fasten your trailing hook with the backing? One of my biggest problems is the trailing hook has too much mobility and fouls my setup after a few casts.

Nice patterns! Thanks for sharing!

MB I use a loop of the backing & three beads.......I try to keep the eye of the second hook even with the end of the first hook.The beads will keep it from allowing the second hook to make the turn.I will try to get you a pic but Im out on the run right now.

the last bug is a Galloup pattern... kind of a cougar with a kitten. Be safe
