Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

Have been playing around with combining synthetic and natural materials to come up with a realistic blacknose dace imitation. Have had great action with this one. Looks killer when wet.

 

Pay no attention to the epoxy bubbles... :blink:

Looks cool Chris :thumbsup: What is the tail made up of? Bubbles in epoxy don't matter when the fish smack it ;)

Tail - Trimmed Henback or Brahma Hen feathers

Body - black wool

Wing - Russian squirrel over small bunch of smoke Unique Hair

Belly - Steve Farrar Blend 'off white' (will have to double check this color name)

Throat - red hackle fibers

Eye - prismatic stick on, placed on body behind thread head

Head - overcoat front end with epoxy to slightly past eye

 

 

Not quite finished tweaking it yet, but it works very well as-is. Attached another pic of it wet.

Great idea. :headbang:

 

Awesome job!

 

I love it.

 

 

Have you tried that round dusk in the Gorge? I'm certain that will move some of the bigger browns.

Thanks guys.

Not yet James. Have only taken it out on the Musky so far. Tons of action. I imagine it will produce especially well wherever there are lots of dace. So far, so good.... Will get it down to the Gorge soon and give you a report.

Hey Chris it looks like one of Herters Steamers . You could write a great little pamphlet about how these are real killers unlike those eastern streamers that catch fisherman :devil:
