  1. To add, natural furs aren't just one consistent color the way synthetics are. There was a tier back in the day, John Atherton, who was also an artist (painter) he used natural dubbing and hackled his flies for just that reason. Insects being natural aren't just one color. A "gray" mayfly is actually a multitude of shades that give an overall impression of "gray". Makes total sense to me. "John Atherton (1900 – 1952) was an artist by trade and incorporated his impressionistic art into the flies he tied. " Not to hijack the thread but here's a bit about John Atherton (click on the grey box to see the flies if they don't show) Atherton #1
  2. Agree with all that's been said.
  3. Nice tie, McFly. The LCC is def one of my go to flies for when duns are on the water. I use wood duck for the tail and antron yarn for the shuck.

  5. @niveker Chug has it right. Nice work
  6. Welcome. You'll get what you came for here. Of course if you can be a bit more specific that would sure help. Post some of your ties let's see the goods. We're a friendly bunch.
  7. Welcome. Ask away and you'll get great answers. Don't forget to post pictures of what you tie.
  8. Thanks all. This site has given so much to me I had to give back to it.
  9. Ditto what Mark said. Kim without you we'd be lost
  10. Got mine on Saturday. Nice job y'all
  11. Like SilverCreek said for a post or shuck. I "destrand" it and use it for Dorsey style indicators for nymphing
