Fly Tying

4th of July swap -Full- ITS A GO!

Recommended Posts

I'll be tying a variation of 'La Belle' , a winged wet from Bergman.  

Might convert it to a hairwing if I can't find good paired quills.

Well, I made use of some blue dyed UV herl I got some time ago. I have a take off on my favorite fly, the red butt soft hackle. This one has red butt, blue hackle body reinforced with thread wound through, and white hen hackle collar.

For years I was a diehard Cubs fan back in the Ernie Banks and Billy Williams and Ron Santo days. Year after year it was going to be next year for the Cubs. Ernie always had something optimistic to say, "The Cubs will shine in '59" and it never happened. I was after I moved here to OK they finally put one together and I did this streamer in celebration of their win and used their logo colors. Would have worked for this swap too I guess.

Very nice, I like the stories behind the flys.

 I was actually thinking of a “ fly with a story” swap. Not sure it would be a go on this site..
