Woolly Bugger.

 

Is the hackle on this fly a little too extravagant/oversized?

When I tie Buggers I add a wire rib; the hackle gets tied in at the head, then reverse-palmered to the tail, capture the tip of the hackle with the rib, then continue forward to the head.  I had the hackle on too many un-ribbed versions of mine come undone after a fish or two.

Regards,
Scott

Sparkle Dun. Here tied on a size 10 hook since I still struggle with spinning deer hair and with the proportions on this fly. I really hate spinning deer hair, meaning, so far, I stink at it! It does not show well on the pictures, but the deer hair "wings" on this fly are fairly asymmetrical.

I found the fly (commercially tied) to be quite productive this morning, so I had to try!

Any input or feedback is welcome.

Tail’s way too thick; kinda hard to tell about the wing shape.  Stacking the hair for Sparkle Dun wings takes a bit of practice. Check out Charlie Craven’s SBS. One of the best at stressing the importance of proportions.

Scott

Here's Charlie Craven again, tying a Comparadun.  Here he ties in the deer hair a little differently.

Last night's ending to Bugs and Bourbon.  Size 22 parachute pseudocleons. I'll tie some more today. Like chugbug27, hopefully they'll get destroyed on Sunday
