Spent may fly spinners on curved hooks :-) .... i heard a rumor that spent spinners on curved hooks works really well so i had to tie a couple.

To be honest i don´t think it will work any better than spent spinners on straight hooks but i will certainly give it a go to see for myself :-)

Hardly any CDC at all this time! blink.png ohmy.png   Truly unique ties!  

What did you use for the abdomen on the last one?

Nope, no cdc on my spent spinners :-) :-) :-) Thanks :-)

 

The last one has Hends Body Quill for the abdomen. It´s a synthetic tread that is great for bodies in no hackle may flies and also for body in spent spinners.

Very light, nice shine in the tread and very easy to wind around the hook.

Great stuff :-) :-)

Very nice bugs - I'll be waiting to hear if they out perform straight bodied ties.

Ditto on the question about the wing material.

Beautiful flies. The wings look like gathered hackle fibers to me.
