May Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

I love flymphs. One of these days I am going to have to learn the technique where they do the bodies in advance.

I stumbled across a video awhile back where a guy tied a fly entirely by hand - no vise, no tools. Looked like a lot of work.

Then, put a lighter under it and burn it.

I tried that trick ...

I can’t believe this. Flytier done plum fell outa the box👍 🤗👍👍👍

Mine are lil different but push a lotta water and still castable.  The bigger blades work better than the least ones.  I.e. spin easier.  Made them to cast across stream and get to spinning as they swing down for tailwater stocker trout.  The big ones are for casting along salty marsh grass for red fish(red drum).  A salty critter that likes vibaration especially  in dirty water.

Gave some to an Arkie guide and he handed me these.  Knock yourself out...

Neat fly tied up for someone...  he wanted a red tail bass coloration.  Used Red fingernail polish for the hackle tail, and green sharpie to color the top of the white hackle.

Do you fish them with  a fly rod or spinning rod? How heavy are thy? They'd work for small mouths on my local water.
