Fly Tying

Getting Ready for Christmas

Recommended Posts

Here in the Deep South, we say 'Merry Christmas Y'All!' I had seen this pattern before, but thought I would give it a shot. This is spun deer hair -- green with a little olive for contrast -- trimmed to look like a Christmas tree. Small (4 mm) jewels added as ornaments and capped with a star bead. You can actually insert them in clear glass or plastic ornaments to give a 'fly in a bottle' effect. I will share some with family and fly fishing friends. Just something to get in the Christmas spirit!!

HaHa.... Im tying the same flies right now too for some of my family members. I saw this in the last Fly Tyer magazine. Is this where you saw it as well ? very nice looking. The glass ornament idea is pretty cool.
