Wow!  September 7th before a "Flies from the Bench" thread got started.

Nice first fly, DF.


Barbed hooks rule!

My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

Mike, I was thinking the same thing yesterday. LOL. I just watched the "Fly Tying Robot" video again. Like I wish! LOL.

Bikini, like your flies. I like your damsel fly a lot. Been paying close attention to them in my back yard this summer and I like the proportions.
Recipe?

Thanks!
The hook is a generic terrestrial, size 6.
The tail is a furled piece of peacock colored diamond braid.
The wings is a bit of congo hair
The body is a couple of rubber legs wrapped around the wings and forward to the eye.

Curious to try it myself. Just made it up on the fly.

Thanks,  I'll have to work on it, but tried this one in red to match some of the local species hanging out at one of the bass spots..

Neat variation of a Hatchmaster, with the parachute hackle under the body. Woodduck definitely worked better for me than mallard. Here's the SBS

hook Dai Riki 125 #12
thread/rib - UTC 70 grey brown
tail/abdomen/head - woodduck flank
wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - rusty dun


Tried brushing the feather with Sally with poor results. Searched the house for vinyl cement; remembered doing some plumbing repairs last week and the proverbial lightbulb went off

Stuff worked great, ventilation is key; luckily, I stepped out of the gene pool years ago.
