Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

I recieved flies from jacktjl and Yetavon today. Great ties guys and thanks for the extra's.

 

I have yet to hear back from Dadalo so I'm assuming that he is going to be MIA. I suppose that I should have known better than allow someone to join with their first post. I will randomly distribute everyone's extra fly so we all still get the anticipated number of flies.

Here is what I sent:

 

Beaded Ant

Hook - size 10-16 dry or nymph standard 1X down eye (14 for this one)

Thread - 6/0 or smaller color to contrast or match ant color (black 6/0 for this fly)

Head - single tan/orange seed bead

Abdomen - 2-tan/orange seed beads with one gun metal seed bead in between

Legs - 3-4 pieces of deer hair wrapped in at thorax

 

Coat all seed beads with a drop of Aleene's Fabric Fusion. A second coat can be applied if you are looking for more translucency and have room at the gap/gape.

Glad they arrive quickly, took about a month for flies from the states to get up to canada in my last swap.

 

 

Another great set came all the way from Canada. Nice ties Shad.

These are quite similar to the Salt & Pepper ant that I've tied for the swap:

 

Hook: #12 wide gap for the swap

Thread: Black 6/0

Abdomen: White glass beads

Legs: Hare’s hare spun in dubbing loop

Thorax: Black glass bead(s) - one bead for the swap, 2 depending on size of bead.

 

Thread bump at back end of abdomen, with spot of superglue to hold the beads in place.

They will be in the mail shortly.
