Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

After taking a brief break from the tying bench I started scanning Mike R's book Classic Salmon Fly Patterns, and just stumbled onto this one.

It has some interesting differences in that there is no topping, 2 totally different materials in the throat and without the ubiquitous jungle cock on the sides.

I'm generally pleased with this tie, but like most tyers I can find flaws that I didn't notice until I studied the pictures.

Feel free to comment and offer thoughts.

George that's a beauty and a great way to break your tier's block. That mixed wing is just gorgeous

Thanks guys. I always appreciate your hat size expanding comments HA 😂HA 😂HA 😂

I forgot to note the 2 materials in the throat are black heron just long enough to reach the hook point...this is schlappen sub since my heron is WAY TOO LONG for this application...and orange hackle (again schlappen) of standard length.

The hook is  Ronn Lucas, Sr. Noble DS size 3/0.
