You Can't Have Any Pudding Till You Eat Your Meat

Larger trout, especially browns, like to eat big meals.  I have been tying some bunny tail flies lately that are a take off of Vermont Guide, Mark Wilde's fly The Wilde Thing.  A few different materials but essentially the same thing as far as the fish are concerned.

What the pattern mostly reminds me of is a simple Pheasant Tail Nymph.  Tail, abdomen, wing casing, thorax and legs.  Pretty simple but effective as any other fly I have been using lately.  Mark ties the fly with a b it of weight on the top of the hook so the point rides up.

Give it a shot and fish them low and slow. Try something big and articulated.  Change colors and materials, add flash or not as well as the weight.  I think you will be very happy with the results.
