Anyone have a link to step by step for tying the over hand weave bodies??

I was part of a fly swap 1 year + back and the stonefly nymph I got was as close to being a realistic tie while not being a realistic fly.


Thanks again

I was lucky enough to get one from day5. thumbup.gif
It will never see the end of a tippet. I keep it for a model of what they are supposed to look like.

Google woven fly patterns there are enough sites to keep you busy for a while. I tie a lot of woven bodies and still pick up good info this way.

If you have the benchside reference then there are many pages on all the different woven tying techniques in it. The overhand weave is actually a very simple method and looks great. Biggest concern when doing it is to just get an underbody built up properly if your doing a stone.
