Fly Tying

Catgut Micro Nymphs

Recommended Posts

I had my personal racquet strung with gut back around 1970. Broke the strings back in about 1972 and have been storing it ever since. I took the strings out and soaked them in water. They became extremely pliable and I was able to separate the gut into smaller sections to tie a few flies. Not as nicely tied and the photography is not as good but they do look pretty good wet. I am going to try them. post-17692-0-56331300-1427678168_thumb.jpg

Good looking flies!! I was using "catguts" some time ago but now I use surgical gloves round rim. I tie the fly with the same technique used to tie the "Shark Caddis"
