  1. Thanks Perchjerker!

    I know steps 1 and 2 but in my case this is my problem "... I would next get on the internet and see who in Spain handles rod building components; and then broaden your search as needed..."

    I need for example..."look for Pacific Bay or Fuji" or "i know an excellent tip guides called XXX"

    I don´t know who made the guides for Sage, i have 2 tip guides but they are a shit, i need a big hard loop tip guide.

    Thanks again!!!

  2. This is my version - attractor . You can do it without lead and use the inside orange or red latex (realistic) .

    You can also white with a brown version inside.


    Cheers !


    Dear John Adams:

    I can´t find a fu##ing PINK LATEX CONDOM :crying:

    They offer me red,yellow,green,brown... but not a pink one.

    Can you tell me the a name or i´ll tie a strawberry red one, too red for a earth worm but......


    Thanks for all

  3. I have been getting into trout streams and love fishing dries on small brook trout streams! So I thought I'd try tying a few dries and came to the conclusion that I HATE TYING DRY FLIES! Wrapping hackle on a size 14 hook just ticks me off! Any help would be great! I have been trying to tie a Royal Wulff :wallbash:



    Some time ago i had the same problem but i hope you try, in special for this fly, the parachute option.

    It´s fast, clear, easy and it´ll transform your Wulff in a great navigator.

    Now, the Royal Wulff (parachute) is one of my favorites flies for Seatrout.

    Come on!!!!Let´s tie one.

  4. avelino,


    you are providing some excellent examples of spanish wet flies.


    my question is: can you explain the "comparadun" style of hackling vs the traditional style of "all around" wet fly hackling?


    Thanks flytire!!

    Here there are tyers who made hackles "all around" for wet but using a "comparadun" style.

    What happens with it? We enter in purists topic :wallbash: (flies, tying method....bla bla bla)


    What about "all around" with Coq de Leon plume??? <_<

    The essence of the matter is the plume itself, we use plume from the kidney zone of the cock and there, the plume has (more or less) 1-1,5 inch. long fibers and the are too long for a wet hackle, I can also tell that the fibers are wery slim and hard (compare with hen or starlight) and the kidney plume has very low density of fibers (as opposed to genetic) and distributed in a pyramid form.

    These type of fiber are used to create a wings feeling without movement and i don´t know a lot about English wets too.

    You could use breast feathers but this kind of rooster do not have.



    Excuse me for my english but sometimes i can´t explain as i want!!
