    Right, which is what? Something anatomical or just a little bit of color. On streamers I get it, but nymphs?

    Jeremy,
    I just use a tiny amount of super glue on the thread wraps and then wrap the peacock over it. Never had it fail and it's easy.

    Really like this fly, Scott. What type of hen feather did you use? Hen back or hen neck or hen cape or.....?
    Thanks,

    I, like many others, have gone exclusively to lead-free wire. However, I don't tie many large weighted flies anymore so the extra weight that lead has over lead-free doesn't really apply to my tying....

    I know this is not a very exciting suggestion, but I fished the South Platte in Elevenmile Canyon 2 weeks ago and one of the days the larger browns were all over the plain old boring black Wooly...

    Very cool looking little fly, Ralph. Change colors and sizes and it would imitate darn near anything on the water.

    I used to use dun or tan posts to match the wing color of the fly I was tying. I now use black, pink, orange, red, reflective pearl, and whatever else I can see better. I catch just as many if not...

    Me, too. The Dai Riki, as Scott said, or the Tiemco 2487 or 2488. Not the heavier wire 2457.

    I use Widow's Web (the same as Congo Hair?) for almost all of my posts, both larger and smaller than #16. After I finish the fly, I comb it and it "poofs" out, making it easier for me to see.

    I tend to like the same thing with my posts as Scott. Since mine are relatively thick, as Ralph noted that is probably why this method worked so easily and well for me. I've always done the thread...

    Tied one last night as some of you did, I'm sure. I didn't change how many hackle wraps I usually put on, didn't lengthen the post any, and didn't put anywhere near as much resin on as Tim did in his...

    Cheech,

    I was wondering about the weight factor. Is resin heavier than super glue? Hardening it shouldn't increase its weight, but I wouldn't put as much on as he does in the video. Almost the...

    It's another UV resin that he has been using in his videos for a while now. Resin and light are together to be more convenient.

    Interesting "Parachuting" Method

    You probably saw this already, but this is an interesting way of hackling parachute flies. I've used super glue on the post to stiffen it before winding the hackle and applied a drop after tying off,...

    I tie it the original way and have used it successfully for years. It's a great pattern. John Geirach described a hatching caddis as looking like a drowned cat and the Bird's Nest certainly fits that...
