January Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

Shoulder is hurting. Maybe time for a little break.

“Variant in the third”

Hook .....   Partridge wet.           Sz 16
Thread ..    Pearsall’s gossamer olive
tail.    ....   Hungarian dyed olive
Body.  .....  pure white mustang tail hair wrapped over oilve thread.  That gave the body a nice glowing primrose effect . Nice but not what we were looking for. Used olive marker to tone it down.
Hackle ..... Hungarian dyed olive

Quill Gordon

Hook: TMC 100, size 14

Tail: Dun 

Body: Stripped peacock (from one of my neighbor's birds)

Hackle: Dun

Wings: Wood duck

Notes: A big thank you to @Moshup for generously sending me some high end hackle to try out. Much appreciated good sir, the quality was obvious. Crappy, rainy day is making for a good day to continue practicing the traditional Catskill patterns (tail a bit long on the one in my photo) while my cross country skis weep. One of our cats, Hermes, always likes to hang out on the bench behind where I sit whenever I tie.
