Trout Flies

NAKED MERMAIDTrout Fly – Naked Mermaid, Sugar Pine Cone, Watercolor, 9X12″, 2017 by Jean Krueger copyrighted with all rights reserved

This trout lure is a bait used with a fly rod. It’s a wet fly which is to say that it floats beneath the surface of the water rather than on top. It is is designed and tied by Ted Krueger of Troy, NY, and is painted at three times it’s actual size.

ConeHeaded buggerTrout Fly – Cone Headed Bugger, Watercolor, 9X12″, 2017 by Jean Krueger copyrighted with all rights reserved

Ted Krueger designed and ties this fly. He says it’s killer. It’s somewhat large for a trout fly (uses a 6 hook), and is a wet fly, that is sinks below the water. The cone head acts as a weight to keep it submerged.

Pine cones are tactile as well as visual delights. The spiraling scales of this female cone hide the seeds close to the core. Female cones and male cones grow an the same tree, convenient for them, eh?

Here shapes are distilled to flat outlines, depending on color changes to define the pine cones surface.
