Re: Copying an old pattern

Just for fun I tied one up using materials Leisenring did not have. Micro Tubing, Bic Marker, and UV resin.

I could not help myself.

Re: Copying an old pattern

It's a fly I tie and fish a lot. As you say, it's a good midge imitation. Nice to see somebody else's interpretation. I've often wondered what insect Leisenring was referring to when he called it an Iron Blue. Yes, I know it's the name of the English pattern he was copying, but he mentioned that it...

From November till April midges and attractor patterns (eggs/worms) account for 90% of the fish I take. That's good news to my ears.

Copying an old pattern

While browsing through a pinned thread named "A fly from the Master " this little pattern caught my eye as it uses mole. One of my favorite materials for tiny midge emergers. https://i.postimg.cc/YqT5T9ds/20190913_075553.jpg I used a Mustad 3906 hook, size 18 to copy the hook as best I cou...

Re: Partridge and Hares Ear (Pete Hidy) - Tutorial (SBS)

Ironic this post came up. I spent m first actual day since having my cast removed, fishing the Gunnison. I swung wets the entire afternoon. I fished a brace of wets the entire time to test some patterns I have been working on. As usual the old reliable Peacock and Partridge and the Peacock and Hares...

Re: Blue Winged Olive

My hand is still broken, but I will be trying this pattern the first opportunity. Perhaps this week if I am lucky. Bead version has a Brown bead and a Brahma hen collar. Beadless version has Partridge for a collar. The body is Danvilles light Olive 6/0 ribbed with Uni 220 Denier Dark Brown, corded. ...

Re: Fly appearance, physics and hydrodynamics

Get a little fish slime , decaying moss, or dirt on your wet fly. Especially after it is water logged. I bet those barbules press against the abdomen at the slightest current caused pressure. Not so much in my experience. I used to believe that, but have looked often enough to believe otherwise. It...
