Tungsten Golden Ribbed Hare's Ear Nymph

Hook: Size 14, 2XL

Tail: Hare's mask (lower)

Ribbing: Gold tinsel

Abdomen & Thorax: Hare's mask blended 

Wing casing: Molted turkey

Notes: Finally buying a dedicated coffee grinder for blending furs was a very smart $16 well spent. 

 

Nice tie Jaime.   I love my blender and spinning up my own magic.

Body is a little shorter than I like it.

 

I know that feeling; razor-bladed a few flies today.

There used to be a guy on one of the saltwater sites who tied some stunning flies with craft fur; wish I could remember who it was. 
I’ve never been able to make heads or tails of the stuff but then I don’t tie many baitfish flies.

Scott

The results can be fantastic in the right hands. Coastfly and Holger Lachman (the one fly.com) are just two of the many I have seen.

 What I hate is how much material you waste and how the superfine trimmings get all over. I get the feeling that I am breathing them in and that I should wear a mask.

Great thing about craft fur is it’s not tapered like hairs so trimming doesn’t effect its appearance/ action.  Made a floater with alternating foam discs and flash/fur.  The GCer is chartreuse/green looped dubbed shanks.  Not much in the lil packs in fly shops  but other sources around in bulk(MardiGras leggings). Reverse tie to create body...  Last pic is the foam floaters; foam discs underneath the cf.

I've only been tying for a couple of weeks now, and this is my first attempt at packing deer hair. My own self-assessment: I  think I  made the first round of deer hair (collar) a bit too long, and the second round (head) I  could've packed in a bit more. Overall I'm pleased with how it spun for me, and I  suspect my trimming will get better.
