Timmy Ties Flys posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchHey it Timmy again be sure to check out my Instagram page @timsflyfishing_pa I am posting today due to weeks of problems with the one and only prince nymph I got the hardest part down (tying in the biots) but i strugle to find a hackle witht the correct length and stiffness to accomidate the pricne nymphs legs. I have tried Indian hen back grab bag hackle and even something is given to me by another fly tyer Mr James Shawley. Still, the fibres where to long 1 and a half the length they should be, im tying these on size 14 standard Daiichi hook. I haven't tried the hackles from underneath a brown hackle cape would these work be I just not looking for the right size? The one cape I was given is good stiffness but too long and the other one I have is good length but stands straight up. I tie it back but I still feel like it should be loose and wavey. Please help me out. If anyone has any extra hackles or materials im a new fly just started and am not asking for handouts just keeping an eye out for someone who might want to help as you all know to be 17 and a fly tyer is difficult when money is tight. I am working on getting a summer job at a fly shop though. Thank you and anyone who might have materials... anything hackle dubbings chennile hooks fur please email me @[email protected] or message me on here. Or if you know anyone with tons of materials im looking anywhere I can. Excuse spelling
