I have been tying some Golden Matuka Stinger Streamers and the results were coming out nicely. Size 10 hook with a size 16 stinger. Golden floss body with a clear stretch cord overbody. Furnace wings and hackle. The pictures came out nice but the USB port on the camera no longer works. Darn! It may be a while before I can post pictures. In the mean time I can do some oohs and ahhs on the other postings. laugh.gif

Hi my name is Charlie
I have been tying for only 2 years but I like to tie salmon and trout flies.
As of late I have been tying para adams, comets and stuff like that.
I still am not that accomplished and am looking to see if anyone has some new ideas and or helpful tips that I might be able to apply to my flies.
I am open to all comments.
Thanks
Charlie

By the way
Awesome flies everyone.

Charlie,

Fly Anglers Online had some nicely documented instructions by Al Campbell. http://www.flyangler...iate/part24.php

Also I have been looking at videos on youtube. If you do a google search you can find a lot of videos. Although I started tying about 25 years ago I took 20 years off and started tying again about 2 years ago. I still find the library a good source of info and recently checked out a book by A. K Best called Production Fly Tying. Although I am not a commercial tyer and never will be there are some good tips in there from a master that I found useful.

Hope this helps,
Tim AKA Jacktjl

It's probably best to try to be included in any swap first like you say unsure.gif before I test my self,but I like your ide. Perhaps a salmon fly with the colors of the flag in the wing and body, hair type wing or so, I tried down.gif to make a bumblebee tonight, I'll try to shoot it tomorrow and see if I can upload the image in the thread, fine flies you have made biggrin.gif

how did you make your first pattern the encased caddis

Fishboy
S 10 curved nymph hook, wrap with 2 layers of lead tape, then cover the whole body area with unwaxed dental tape.
cover with 5 min epoxy then drop into a container of model railway dirt/stone remove from this and allow to dry. When dry put a small tag of flouro green thread at the tail and whip finish, then dub a small thorax of hare's ear, build a small head and then whip finish.

any questions pm or e-mail and I will try to help.

Steve
