Ausable Ugly Materials and Tools
The "Ugly" was originated in 1999 at my vise one late August night, after fishing a bead head muskrat nymph that day with success, determined to make the pattern better, I added a hen grizzly hackle and aggressively roughed up the entire fly with a stiff toothbrush, the result was an ugly looking fly, thus the "Ausable Ugly". This fly can be tied from sizes # 18 to #2 , this nymph can be presented by the following methods: dead drifted at various depths, quarter cast downstream and slowly stripped back or aggressively retrieved. The "Ugly" is representative of many different nymphs and the larger patterns mimic small bait fish. The "Ugly" is an excellent all purpose attractor pattern nymph that can be fished all year around in moving or still water. Quoted the" Geter Done Fly" by many anglers.The "Ugly" can be used for trout, bass, pike, and pan fish.
Want to tie the Sirloin??? use the link below:
Sirloin Dressing and Recipe
The "Sirloin" came to gather it's name from a guided trip in 1998, a client had presented many different patterns into a feeding lane where I was certain a large fished held, with no response to the many different patterns offered, I pulled out the "Sirloin" in a #2 and my client exclaimed "What a meal!!!!, looks like the sirloin steak I had last night." The name has stuck ever since. The "Sirloin" can be tied from sizes # 14 to # 2, with varying body color and the addition of a cone head. This fly is steamer with a strong influence from the Muddler Minnow pattern, the difference is that the wing and tail material is coyote belly fur which is very durable and when wet and retrieved will undulate to provide a life like appearance in the water as opposed to the stiff turkey feathers. The "Sirloin" is presented in a downstream quarter cast and retrieved with a "strip - stop - strip" action. This fly can be fished for trout, bass, pike, and saltwater species. I have used this pattern to great success in catching large trout when all else fails, especially in the early spring and late fall.
