Butt Monkey and the Wounded Cheesie

What’s orange and yellow and lays in the grass?…A Wounded Cheesie. Odd names for streamers, but fitting none the less. Alex at The Day Tripper has captured some video of the Butt Monkey, a pattern originated by Kelly Galloup, and put it up on Youtube for all to see. The Green Butt Monkey, Yellow Butt Monkey and the Wounded Cheesie are all variations of this killer steelhead and Brown Trout fly. By far, the most unique name for a streamer has to be the Wounded Cheesie. If you run into fish with orange lips and fins, tie one on.

The utube video is removed and you can now view the video at Angler’s Net http://www.theanglersnet.com/Fly-Tying-Videos/play_video.asp?section=6&VID=142
