June Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

Thought I’d try the other side of the street...just for a little while...Dang that’s tough on 71 yr old eyes and fingers.  The thing about fly fishing the expanse of applications is enormous.   7/0 popper/18-20 midges.   1-2wt stuff to 12-14wt behemoths...

Very nice James.  Any particular material that you use for the thorax?

Nice TS.  I like using pheasant, in my opinion it's way under-rated in today's fly tying.  

I think so too. I am always on the look out for patterns I can use pheasant - both male and female - on.

Brown Owl, first attempt, tied with materials on hand.   Crowded the head, and the proportions need adjusting - probably increasing the body length would have helped.

Hook: #10, curved (GCO)

Thread: brown

Body: pearl tinsel braid (FTD), hit with gold Sharpie, coated with Sally's

Underwing: brown buck tail

Wing: teal flank feather

Hackle: India hen, trimmed on top.

Well guys it's been a while since I posted last, tied up some bivisibles the other day, also tied a "new" pattern the Au Sable Humpy. It's not really new because it's just a blend of 2 patterns. the Au Sable Wulff and the Humpy. Once I get them (the ASHumpies) good enough I will post a couple.
