  1. Lance-Forget all the politics of it,just have fun naming them. I named one after a customer that was the first to try it out,his brother came back the next day and said "that dumb ass tore it up" named it "D.A.Caddis". My best seller I named it "Drymerger" because I felt it was a cross between a dry and a emerger.
  2. Match the hatch... Glo Bug tied with brown or tan mcfly foam.
  3. Your solution= Propeller blades. they are made in 4 sizes. Flatten out twist in blade.Lay on hook so one blade sticks out past eye,tie to hook. bend as desired. tie pattern over.
  4. Maybe if you tie on 6/0 hook....J/k I don't know of any but you can make beards or do a dubbing rope to make soft hackle.
  5. Hareline has deer hair # DD-383 should be perfect for him. any fly shop should be able to get it for you.
  6. Biots come from the leading edge of a wing feather. there are a lot of uses for Turkey feathers. shell backs on nymphs,wings for hoppers,married wings.

    Yes,each one wraped around tubing on every wrap.
  17. There are only so many bugs out there to imitate. There are thousands apon thousands of tiers trying to imitate the same bugs. To the untrained eye they do look like knock offs of previous bugs but the differences are there, subtile, but there. I have seen quite a few Original patterns in just the last decade. If you do not believe,just find a book that is 10 years old and see how far it has come.

    Wasp

    Me likes!!! If I get some time I will tie a couple to try this weekend. Figure the bead on it will help it to get down for nymphing? or will it still float because of the foam?
  23. longears: it has little to do with your tying ability and everything to do with your ability to market yourself and your fly. $$$$
