Fly Tying

Bruce's Damsel

Recommended Posts

I'm reposting this damsel fly since it didn't show up here when uploaded to the pattern database. It's a fun fly to tie and I've had terrific success with it when displayed at the eastern shows. I used Bug Bond or Clear Cure Goo (whatever is handy on the bench) to pre-set the wing assembly. I figured if it was OK for Carrie Stevens to pre-assemble wing/cheeks, I'm in good company. It's a bit difficult to cast with the wooden base so better pull out your 12 weights :).


The wing assembly photo obviously uses lace hen hackles and not blue jay but it's just an example of the process.


Happy Holidays to all and a healthy, prosperous, and safe 2013.
