  1. Interesting. Thanks for posting this.
  2. Nice! Is the under wing 2 red hackles and some peacock herl?
  3. Found time to start restocking my give away fly box. I give these flies away to my casting class students. Some events are starting to happen and it is good to see this box empty once again. It'll take another dozen to fill the box. The fly is called "Dale's Psychedelic Spider" and just has foam, pearl chenille, and rubber legs tied on a size 10 3366 hook. It's easy to cast and Bluegill love them.
  4. Personally, I am enjoying the comments and discussions. There are several people here like me that are learning this style of tying and the comments here have been way kinder and more helpful than I have seen on some other locations. No way would I ever post a fly on some of them. I am enjoying the beginner posts and comments.
  5. I had missed this thread before today. Wow, there is a lot of good advice in here. Thanks for the help.
  6. Thanks for the kind comments everyone.
  7. Kelson's Black Dog with a lot of substitutions and a lot of mistakes. A major mistake about half way through resulted in crowding the eye and I had to skip the wood duck in the wing as a result, but this is the most complex pattern that I've attempted so far and I'm still proud of it. Warts and all. Tag: Silver tinsel and yellow silk Tail: GP topping and red goose Butt: Black ostrich Rib: Yellow silk with oval silver tinsel on each side Body: Black silk and black hackle Throat: Same hackle as body Wing: Underwing of red-orange hackle, Jungle fowl, then two shades of turkey (sub'ed for bustard and pheasant), red and yellow goose, and a GP topping. Note: I skipped the wood duck in the wing due to I just ran out of space.

  9. Thanksgiving is done. So, it's time to hang the Christmas tree.
  10. Living Waters Fly shop recently posted a nameless bass fly that was tied with the goal of putting as much motion as possible in the pattern. Other than the hackles, I have no idea how they tied their fly, but here's my (rather poor in comparison) attempt to copy the pattern. It looks kind of ugly, but I think this will be a very effective bass fly. Not much to the recipe. The tail and the collar are both tied with Medium Pardo Coq de Leon hackles and Grey Heron Whiting Spey hackles. Fly Tier Dungeon's Kraken Dubbing in Silver Minnow was used for the body with some lead on the shank for weight.
  11. Also, he lists the alternatives as: Daiichi 1730, Dai-Riki 700-B, Gamakatsu C11-5L2H, and Kamasan B810 Good luck!
