  1. When you guys post deer hair heads like this it makes me realize how much I suck. Very nice fly tying.
  2. Just been playin around today with some foam. I figured this year I would try some of these to see if I can pull a few bass on the lake. I used some CDC and some Web Wing over for the wing. Looks ok in the sun from underneath.
  3. When I first seen the photos my first thought was a Zara Spook too. A Zara Spook fly!! "The Dietrich Flook" Thanks for the instructions.
  4. As if I dont have enough to tie this winter and you go and post these. I will have to try them. Nice work!!!
  5. SMC How far can you double haul? Thanks Kirk. I filled them with another disc. Just a slight cup now. Going to do the red mouth thing on my next bunch. Cheers fellas

    Gurgler

    Ive been tying up some gurglers today for bass. I think its originally a saltwater fly so thought I would put it here. Tail- DNA Halo Fusion White Body- Wapsi Palmer Chenille Pearl Gray Throat Hot orange Antron Yarn Thought maybe a throat for a trigger point. Dont know if its right or not but doubled over the foam and crazy glued it together. The body is much more plump using the palmering chenille which I like. i tried it for the heck of it and thought hey that looks ok. Sort of gives it a fur look. Im really liking the synethetics and find myself using them more and more. Even on my poppers. This DNA Frosty Fibre and Halo Fusion is nice I think. Just need to get the knack of tapering and thinning down. Ive got them tied in some funky colours
  7. This is my first go at tying up a selection of crease flies. Ive tied 5 each of sizes 2/0,1/0 and 2. Before I do anymore tying I want to make sure Im on the right track. Tail material used is DNA Halo Chromosome tied in about equal length to the body. I stuffed some small round pcs of foam in the mouth to open it up a bit. I made my template so the height of the foam is about equal to the gape of the hook. Ive tested them in the bath and all seem to land hook down. I read on here that some tie them to actually sit on their sides but I wanted a bunch to run with hook down. Im waiting on my copic marker(which I found out about on here) so hopefully my paintwork will get better. These are just done with a sharpie marker then rubbed to blend. If there is anything you would do or change please chime in. TIA
  8. Been tying some crease flies for bass fishing. I thought I would try some with rubber for the tail. They have a great action. I bought a cutter but didnt like the shape so I made my own template to fit the hook. This one if 2mm foam with pearl crystal skin over then epoxied. This is my first go at tying these so I hope Im on the right track. Tail is white and green loco legs. Hook is a Varivas 2610-V size #1/0. I like this hook as they have a nice big gape for the hook size.
  9. I bought some really nice metallic foils to put on my crease flies. I also bought some adhesive pens for crafts. It says to apply let it dry then press your foil shiny side up and put some pressure on it. I guess its like a contact cement idea glueing together while dry. The problem is its not working so well. Any tips on ahesives for foil? Ive seem PVA mentioned somewhere? TIA
  10. Go for the one that starts with a P and ends in erch!!! Looking forward to that one.
  11. You sure can paint ummm!!! Would love to see a perch. Go on I dare you.

    Crease Flies

    Excellent!!! I want to tie some up for smallies. A few questions you may be able to help me with? Does that hook come smaller as I said Im tying for smallies I have tons of foam and have been experimenting but plain foam looks kinda dull and lifeless. Yours look great. Is that a covering over the foam or a coating?
