I have some pics of the flies I had made. I don't remember the names except the Egg Sucking Leech in the third picture and one of them is a Royal Coachman. These were to be added to my Brookie Box. I had four of each made, so I have spares. I caught lots of 8" Brookies with the one in the first pic and the fourth pic had a couple also. No size to any of the brookies as the lake was algae infested due to a warm up. I hope the pic's are clear enough.
The pics are great. Not only that, your ties look pretty damn good too. I don't know the name of the last one, but the rest look like tha are 1. wooly bugger 2. pumpkinhead 4.royal coachman (wet) 5. mickey finn.

The flies were tied by a custom fly tier in Williams lake. He does an awesome job. I just tell him what I want and he gets them done. I used the one in the first pic yesterday. I had lots of hits and some Rainbows up to the pontoon but couldn't get then to stay on. Lots of fly fishers but not a lot of catchers. Maybe in the morning it was better as there was sign of fish cleaning. I did see some 5+ lb jumpers. My buddy was using a huge leach pattern and had what looked like from the jumping an easy 5lb rainbow, he lost it at the last few seconds before he could land it.

Some of my top flies for brookies in lakes are: Epoxy Minnow, woolly worm, black gnat, hornberg, dragons. burgandy seal fur bugger, muddler minnow or flies that have some red and/or orange in them. I partially agree with bh in that sometimes I fish for them no differently than other species, although I find brookies are more apt take streamers than rainbows.
