I really like this brown one.  If you can get some better, other-angle pictures, I'd appreciate it.

Mikechell, here is one image of the "brown one,"  It is supposed to be a dock spider.  Legs are 3 or 4 strands of turkey tail that I coat with head cement before mounting them.  978206140_DockSpider.JPG.6c52e014406d9e172b9cafc55958bfa5.JPG

Thank you!  Foam body colored with markers?

Yes I used a white nail polish on the edges, the rest is markers.

flytier, you have inspired me. I have a bunch of keeled hooks that I bought may years ago and have never really used. I like the sparse, buggy look of those patterns. Will have to give them a try.

SBPatt,

I noticed in your recipes you have some dying guidelines for some materials. I, like many I suspect, am a little apprehensive about dying materials. Do you have a tutorial on how you dye your stuff?

BTW, your flies are amazing, so full yet so sparse. I've admired them since joining the forum some years ago. I don't yet have the skill nor the stones to pack that much stuff onto a hook and make it look half as good. Hats off to you!

Cheers!

Dutch

Dutch,

Thanks. Here’s a SBS for the process I use to dye natural substrates. 

As for the flies, it’s mostly a matter of understanding proportions (position on the hook where materials are tied in and amounts used) and thread tension. Watch videos from Hans Weilenmann and Charlie Craven or read anything by A.K. Best - you’ll never see a wasted wrap and all of their flies are perfectly balanced. Davie McPhail ties great flies, too; amazing stuff.

Scott
