October Flies From The Vise

Recommended Posts

@Sandan for clarification I was a downstate boy. Worked in NYC most of my life but fished the Catskills. When I 23 

I knocked on Harry Darbee’s door with my best friend “Mr. Dennis Gonyon. The fishing musician.” in tow and when I mentioned that my mother’s side was from Cape Breton we were then treated to a bunch of stories of fishing the Margaree and of Lee Wulff’s exploits up in New Found land. It’s a visit we still talk about today.

@jaimeofthenorthwoods   Pattern recommended to me for Maine waters.  Fly consists of Grey squirrel dubbing and 2 brown wood Duck nreast feathers.  Wondering if you know the pattern ?

Got a few black gurglers done tonight after the kids went to bed. The smolt blue/pearl crystal flash looks good with the black I thought. 6A56BB86-AE75-4710-8AF5-761EDB463CDE.thumb.jpeg.527595846e16de663bbd45fdc6f8fda8.jpeg

Woody breast feathers for fan wings.  The lil white is what makes the white spots on the Drake’s breast.   Woody flanks and Gadwall breasts for fan wings too.

Yes denduke I was aware that the breast feather were great for fanwings.  I’m not very practiced in that method and yours look great. Really very nice.

Apparently that fly is great for the brown caddis hatch up in Maine.  It’s really a simple and quick tie. I should have used more

dubbing over the wing base as the fly is suppose to  look pretty buggy and not clean. First try off a video.
