    Default Bob jacklin Drake Series

    I really love the flies Bob Jacklin ties. There are some videos of his tying on Youtube.
    When I go to his shop in West Yellowstone, I pick up some of the flies he tied.

    I couldn't resist this shadow box of 3 of his Drakes: Brown, Green, and Little Green.

    Photos of flies in a shadow box never do justice to the flies, but I think you can see the quality of his beautiful ties:

    After purchasing a few of Bob's flies, I was standing outside his shop on the sidewalk. He came out and gave me one of these. He said it is his new pattern for a small Western Green Drake. Normally, he ties it comparadun style with moose hair for the tails and a yellow/green hackle as well as the deer hair.

    In this version, he uses dun hackle fibers for the tail and a dun hackle as well as the regular deer hair to complete the comparadun style.

    Very nice pattern, I believe.

    y pattern, which worked very well for the Flav hatch, is a simple Sparkle Dun Pattern. Not as fetching as Bob Jacklin's - that's for sure - but it did the job.

    I like the looks of both flies. What is the tail material you used in your fly, looks like a kip could be used.

    The flies by Jacklin are really nice. Interesting how he blended the hackle and deer hair wing together.

    Stump,
    It is actually a trailing shuck and is Zelon material.
    Thanks,
