June Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

The Stoneflies are hatching out west and will be for a few more weeks. So here are two new ones I just tied up for my fishing buddy.

 

The name spelling is the way I want it, not a mistake.

I tie this craw pattern in stages when I tie a batch of them. The weight stage I call the "chassis" of the fly.

Switch threads to 100GSP for the deer hair portion.

And then finish them up.

For anyone considering taking their tying efforts commercial... What Cream has just shown is the way many of us tie when filling orders... I'll take a pile of #4 hooks then tie in beadchain eyes (until I get tired of it...) then the bodies, then the wing, with the final step the finish (whatever I'm using). One of the biggest time consumers for a commercial tyer is gathering all the materials for a specific pattern then organizing your efforts to make the best use of your time... The last type of order I ever wanted was one that only needed a couple of each pattern since that would greatly slow me down. I've left commercial tying a few years back (after doing from 1979 onwards...) but still do make a lot of lures for customers (understatement since I'm filling orders for 100 to 150 at a time...).

 

For a better look at that whole topic get a copy of A. K. Best's PRODUCTION TYING . It came out a few years back and was helpful for me - even though I'd been tying commercially for some years at that point... I lent my copy out a few years back and wish I'd gotten it back...
