Size 10 yellow Stimulator
Yea I think I may try making mine
A lot of great replies, thanks for all the advice. I think I'm going to give the New Zealand system a try but plan on picking up a few others as well.
I'm looking to experiment with some different strike indicators this winter. I've been a thingamabobber guy for awhile but I'm ready to move on and try and some new stuff. I've used some yarn ones...
All very interesting thanks for the replies
I was wondering if the sinking gels you can get actually work to sink flies. As a fly tier I don't really like weighting my flies at the bench. I normally just use split shots on my leader or a...
Great video, glad I finally took the time to watch it. Really interesting guy
To tie these do you trim the underside of the hackle then or do you actually pull the bottom hackles up and lock in... I've seen davie mcphail do that at times in his videos. Looks like your...
Sparkle dun.. Easy to tie, cheap to tie,float well, fish well... Actually I think I'm going to go tie some right now
Not always the case but as I read these posts I feel like most people that have an expensive rod are probably defending them and the people that don't have an expensive rod are justifying reasons not...
Yea thanks man
Yea they are pretty nice alan
Oh soo many options. I think a Cree would be awesome. I also have a couple prime India rooster capes in some of the odd colors, sometimes they are nice to add as a second hackle to give a different...
Great ideas. Still undecided... Saddles are a good idea too, I bought a 100 pack once and they are nice to tie with. The wheels are kind of turning with maybe trying to dye some feathers from the...
I never thought about coloring the hackle... Good idea
Oh sorry yes I've got a natural grizzly cape as well
So I got the itch to buy another cape, I currently have black, cream, brown, ginger, medium dun. Besides those colors what should be my next color purchase. I really like some of the olive grizzly...
Nicely done, thanks for showing that I'll have to give it a try
Lol let me know of that comes through, it's from my I phone, not sure how to rotate picture
Attempt at attaching picture..
Just to give an update... Picked up a pack of synthetic quills in the Adams color. I think hareline makes them if I remember correctly. Tied 2 size 12 Adams last night with them. Over all I would...
Agreed, dull side forward on dries, shiney side forward on wets. I think of it as using the natural curve in the hackle to aim the barbules where I want them to go
Wanting to use these for dry flies, has anyone tried them?? I think hareline makes them
Your very right on this, some packs of turkey biots I have are very long and easy to tie with, others are much shorter
