  1. Found this on Frankie Mcphillips’ site; could work as a damsel. hook - WFC Model 6 #8 thread - Danville 6/0 light olive rib - small wire chartreuse abdomen - medium tinsel pearl wingcase - large tinsel pearl thorax - FTD Starburst olive hackle - olive Mash barb/start thread at 2/3 mark; wrap to bend Strip some fibers off a marabou plume (pinch/rip allows you to turn real crap into something useable) Grab them by their base and twist between your fingers; then grasp them towards the tips, pinch and tear, hopefully ending up with a clean separation Measure (shank length); tie in/trim, cover with thread (waxing helps cut down on the fluff) Tie in rib and tinsel (in that order) Brush shank with Super Glue, wrap abdomen; tie off/rim Wrap rib to 2/3 mark; leave tag end free Tie in wingcase Dub thread/dub thorax Tie in hackle; reverse palmer to back of thorax Capture hackle tip with rib, finish wrapping thru thorax; helicopter end/cover with thread Pull wingcase forward; tie down/trim, whip finish, SHHAN Regards, Scott
  2. Steve, Thanks. On the U.K. site where I found the fly, it’s listed as a “lure”, which is sort of a streamer. It’s definitely meant to be fished sub-surface so I guess, technically, it’s a wet fly. Regards, Scott
  3. KJ Black Death hook - BVFT Dry #10 thread - Veevus 8/0 black body - tinsel silver wing - marabou black head - Ice Dub pearl hackle - hen black Regards, Scott
  4. Thx; the deer hair took the dye well. Now I can pitch all the crappy black deer hair I’ve bought over the years. Regards, Scott
  5. Muddled Mak’s Cormorant Added a little buoyancy to his neat, little fly hook - BVFT Dry #10 thread - Veevus 8/0 black rib - medium tinsel Holo Red body - peacock herl wing - marabou black head/collar - deer hair dyed black (1 Tbs Rit Dark Brown/1 cup water, overdyed with 1 Tbs Rit Black/1 cup water) Regards, Scott
  6. Irish Lough Stimulator (variation) Dumbed-down version of Davie McPhail’s; skipped the legs becasue I didn’t feel like sitting around knotting pheasant tail and passed on the bronze mallard overwing because I used up my stash. hook - BVFT Dry #10 thread - Veevus 8/0 black tag - Depth Ray fire orange tail - pheasant tail rib - small wire gold body - dubbing claret body hackle - claret (1 Tbs Rit Wine/1 cup water) wing - deer hair dyed claret thorax - dubbing hot orange front hackle - grizzly dyed hot orange (1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow, 1/4 Tsp Rit Scarlet/2 cups water) Regards, Scott

Viva Muddler hook - WFC Model 6 #8 thread - Veevus 8/0 black tail - marabou dyed chartreuse rib - small wire chartreuse body - Ice Dub black body hackle - black shoulder - pheasant rump dyed chartreuse (1 Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water) head/collar - deer hair dyed black (1 Tbs Rit Dark Brown/1 cup water, overdyed with 1 Tbs Rit Black/1 cup water) Regards, Scott
  8.

  10. CT Doobry Muddler Still learning how to (neatly) pinch/rip the marabou to length. hook - WFC Model 6 #8 thread - Danville 6/0 black/Depth Ray fire orange(head only) tail - marabou chartreuse rib - small wire gold body - tinsel gold body hackles - orange/black collar/head - deer hair dyed orange Regards, Scott
  11. Hot Damsel Muddler The original was a neat looking fly so I thought I’d take a cut at it. hook - WFC Model 6 #8 thread - Danville 6/0 black/Depth Ray fire orange (head only) tail - marabou olive body - FTD Starburst olive wing - marabou olive topping - Krystal Flash rootbeer collar/head - deer hair dyed orange Regards, Scott
  12. Norski Lad Olive Crappie bait. hook - WFC Model 6 #8 thread - Veevus 8/0 tan/Danville Flymaster Plus white (head only) tail - marabou light olive rib - small wire gold body - large tinsel opal wing - marabou light olive topping - Krystal Flash pearl head - pronghorn white Regards, Scott
  13. Stone Goat Snatcher Had to sub dyed grizzly for the body hackle since I didn’t have any plain in that size. Since I doubt any fish I put this in front of have ever seen the original, it’s unlikely they’ll notice the difference. hook - WFC Model 11 #10 thread - Danville 6/0 black tag - Depth Ray fire orange/resin rib - small wire gold body - Ice Dub black hackle - grizzly dyed claret (1 Tbs rit Wine/1 cup water) cheeks - biots orange collar/head - hen black Regards, Scott
  14. Muddled Blue Zulu Snatcher First attempt at dyeing white pronghorn. Seemed to suck up the color readily, although it might be a bit too intense; may try it again with a more diluted solution. hook - WFC Model 11 #10 thread - Veevus 6/0 black tag - Danville single strand floss flame rib - small wire silver body - Ice Dub peacock black hackle - black collar/head - pronghorn dyed blue (1 Tbs Rit Aquamarine, 1/8 Tsp Rit Kelly Green/1 cup water) Regards, Scott
  15. Thanks. I haven’t had much experience dyeing black; from what I know, it’s best to dye it dark brown or dark blue first before the black. I bought the rump patch already dyed so I didn’t have to deal with that. Regards, Scott
