October Flies From The Vise

Recommended Posts

Beautiful work there @SilverDoctor, picture perfect hackle, fan tail, body. 

Hey, if you don't mind my asking, do you leave a little bare thread at the body / tail junction? If not, any tips for getting the peacock herl wrapped so no thread shows at that junction, without messing up your fan tail?

Steven Bird’s site is a great source for some cool patterns; this one’s pretty basic, but pretty nonetheless.

hook - BVFT Dry #10
thread - Danville 6/0 brown 
rib - small wire silver
body - tinsel copper 
thorax - dubbing hare’s ear/pink
hackle - partridge

Regards,
Scott

Nice ones Bimini,Mark & Scott. Scott I like the use of a single feather for the wing.

Mark are you using a wing burner for the wings?

 

No, I've been cutting them out by hand with scissors. The idea of a cutter or burner is intriguing though.

There are about 25 wet flies in Bergman's "Trout" that do not have wings. This is one of them.

Butcher

515343622_Butcher1.thumb.jpg.0d3d8cae58cec1c7dcec1f4cfd1f0857.jpg

Hook: Size 12

Tail: Red Goose

Body: Red Floss

Rib: Yellow Danville Flat Waxed Nylon 210 Denier (the original calls for yellow silk)

Hackle: Cream Badger

After tying this, I thought that it would look good with a red wing and possibly better with yellow hackle rather than cream badger.

Butcher Variant

There is also an English fly called the Butcher that looks completely different. I will be tying a few of those as well.

As handy as your are Mark you could probably make your own wing burner from scrap metal you have lying around.

@jaimeofthenorth.  The Rain Fly with jc eyes.  I don’t have alot of experience with freshwater streamers and I can see my saltwater influence on this fly. May not be a good thing.
