Fly Tying

tying with duck

Recommended Posts

Seriously, what am I not getting? :-/ I am having a difficult time tying with duck to tie up some wet flies that use duck feathers for wings, both upright and tent-like for a caddis look like below.

They seem to be attached well, head is a little long. I like them to straddle the hook a little but not hide the body as much. All you would need todo is move up the hook on top of the shank. If you are looking for more of an up wing look at around a 45 degree angle of the shank move them even more on top of the shank and before you tie them down have them the angle you want.
