  5. A while back, i was given a box of materials, and among all of it were several flies. This is one of those flies. Just out of curiosity i wanted to know the name of it, so if anybody here could help by telling me what it is, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jconns

  7. So i've been on a bit of a break from tying flies, and wanted to start tying again, so I figured i'd start with a few dry flies. I know of the bombers and flies of that kind but wanted to try something different. I was just wondering what are some good dry fly patterns for atlantic salmon and sea run trout? Thanks
  8. No, I don't. After tying in the hackle, i'll bring the thread back up to the head and then wrap the hackle, then tie it off.
  9. You can tie them in from the eye, but i tie the hackle in from the bend.

  11. Hey, Thanks for that, I completely forgot about doing that.
  12. Hey, What did you use for the body on this fly?
  13. Thanks for those websites I appreciate it
  14. I was fishing for sea run browns at the time, I was also fishing dead drift and being an idiot i forgot my indicators at my house.
  15. Hi, I recently went fishing and tried a few nymphs that I had tied up, unfortunately with no success. This might sound kind of dumb but I was wondering if anybody could give me some tips on how to fish using a nymph
  16. Hi, Nice tie What exactly are you using for the wings and tail?
  17. Thanks, Yeah, I didn't think there was a substitute, but i'll try that next time I tie some.
  18. Jconns here you are White Wulff Hook: 4 – 10 Mustad single 3399A Tail: White buck tail Body: White dubbing Wings: White buck tail Hackle: Grizzly, white or badger Head: White Humber green Butt (Humber Magic) Hook: 6 - 10 single salmon Tag: Flat silver Butt: Green floss Body Black Floss Rib: Oval silver Hackle: Black cock Wing: Black bear Sides: Jungle cock Head: Black Happy tying Jens Thanks, you saved me a bit of work! There really isn't any substitute for jungle cock is there? Because I don't have any of those.
  19. Thanks, I'm hoping i do well i try to find the patterns for those and tie a few.
  20. The past week i've been tying up a few blue charms, and a few green highlander variants. I attempted some bombers and thought they turned out alright, no the best. I used caribou for the bombers, not deer hair, is there any difference in using that? Here are a couple of those flies. Feel free to comment and give some advice.
  21. Thanks for the suggestion, i'll try and tie some of these. Ahh, I plan on fishing a few rivers on the Avalon
  22. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to tell you. I've never tried it on the river before I'm new to fly fishing, I've only been out salmon fishing a couple of times. I'm in Mt.Pearl also.
  23. I'm on the Avalon as well. I agree with you about the head on the highlander it didn't turn out the way i wanted and I haven't had a chance to redo it. I find the same thing with the squirrel tail sometimes you think it's in there but you give it a little tug and it all comes out.
  24. Thanks for you help. I'll do this next time I tie some up.
  25. Thanks for the step-by-step, what the name of the thread that you used? P.S: What do you mean burnish the thread?
