How about a recipe?
I don't know anything about it. Looks sweet though.
How about making it just a little bit easier and posting a link?
Just a thought.
Way to go Byron you got me. The southernmost part of the southernmost state of the Midwest.
I started fishing when I was 35 and it was a fly rod.
Everything is best used on trout that are so tired, they're not thinking straight.
This is kind of interesting, but I might move the wing back a bit from the head.
I have often commented on the common practice that I see these days of using a large indicator and one or more weighted nymphs to catch trout. Now there is nothing wrong with using an indicator or...
For a 10' leader....
3' .022 Maxima Brown
2' .019 Maxima Brown
1' .017 Maxima Brown
1/2' each of .015, 013 on 0x Orvis Super Strong
1/2' 2x, 2' 4x
1/2' 3x, 5x
The split tail technique is in the Benchside Reference. Can't remember off the top of my head who's technique it is. Fullum? Talleur? Beatty?
Stripping the hackle was interesting as it makes...
For Wisconsin grannoms, I'd use what's pictured but maybe use a black rib.
For very small flies, I do this as well.
Of course. My question really was whether using a X-wrap and cutting off the bottom provided a notable improvement to standard wrapping and cutting off the bottom.
What's the purpose of tying in the hackle in an X and then cutting off the bottom?
If Borger says he invented it independently of the hair wing dun who's to argue (although I'd still be interested in which pattern was introduced first)?
Anyway, it still remains that substituting...
My assumption had always been that Borger substituted yarn for the deer hair in Harrop's Hair Wing Dun
This. I think mysis were tranplanted there to support fish life in the man-made reservoirs. I think they're are also present in the reservoirs and tailwaters of Arkansas.
You don't tie down the zonker strip with a rib or anything?
...and you can play solitaire to rest a pool.
Hey. Beats smoking.
I use GSP when I forget I suck and try to tie bass flies.
Can you dub directly on it?
Same way you would. Such a wing was necessary in the context of a thorax dun.
Yet, why wasn't it necessary for the skater?
Remember, the thorax dun was as much about its supposed footprint on...
I've read Modern Dry Fly Code many times and have probably read all of Founding Flies three or four times.
Marinaro had to have tall, separate wings because of the criss cross hackling pattern of...
I don't think Marinaro and others made a case for distinct wings separate from hackle. He made a case that whatever was used to replicate the wing should be tall. Marinaro's thorax duns had to have...
Ants will float for awhile and then sink. I think this is true of all terrestrials.
Searching the Way Back Machine, I just found this!
FWIW, I was under the impression that 70 denier was closer to 8/0 than 6/0. 140 denier would be the 6/0 equivalent.
Am I wrong on this?
Edit to add: I mostly tie with Uni Thread in 8/0 or 6/0...
