Glanrhosish wet fly/flymph

Postby fly_fischa » Sat Sep 09, 2017 4:31 am

Got invited to a fly challenge on instagram, choose a fly, tie 5 variations of that fly and post them :?
I chose an adams for mine and decided to have a lash at tying a flymph in the glanrhos style, my first time :oops:

Partridge nymph sproat sz12
White thread
Pheasant tippets
abdomen of dun seals fur
wing of whitings grizz and furnace hen
Thorax of the same dun seals fur dub
Hackle is basically the wings wound forward thorax style (I stripped one side as I was wrapping two hackles)

Really enjoyed tying this style, such an easy peasy tie! I think it would fish well as an emerger, gonna knock a few out and give em a swim...

In case anyones interested in the other flies, at the risk of being banned from the forum :shock: here they are;
They've got wings and will sink with enough split shot, honest... :twisted:

Karsten,
Wow!! These are beautiful and very creative! The dries especially have a certain beauty about them and I know that trout (and others too!) would find them attractive!
I have experimented with Glanros wings on occasion particularly on flymphs and with starling feathers. If you can get the feather tip to behave on the final wrap.....when it all comes together, it's awesome! Yours look really good! Well done friend!
From the den,

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Thanks Doug :D
I tied this one in by the wing tips measured them to be similar to a Bergman style wet. To prep the feather I stripped the appropriate side and cut a short notch in the hackle side emeriately after the wing about 5-6 barbs this allows for a good strong tie in and orientation of the wing and the bare stem at the beginning of the wrap means there are no stray hackle fibres. Hope that makes sense?

I love the Glanrhos flymph, Karsten, and the hackling work on the tri-viz is awesome.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Hi Karsten,

The flies you tied are very creative, cleanly tied, and really demonstrate your skill as an innovative fly tyer.

Nicely done!

Best,

Tim

Great variations on a theme! Are they all on a size 12 hook?

I suspect it would take quite a few pieces of shot to sink that bi-(tr?)-visible.

I don't have to tell you that it's very nice - you know it is. You tied in the wing first and wrapped the hackle afterwards, didn't you? That's what I do with starling.

That grizz and furness is loverly...

Great flies and photography! 8-) The beautiful dry reminded me of a Tricolore.

Oh my goodness Karsten, those are AMAZING!
Get over here this season and let's go fish some of these beauties :-).

My favourite is the rear mounted haystack.
Superb tying and I know it will be an effective fly.
It's that sort of out-of-left-field fly that has your signature all over it.
Well done!

Superb photography too. Matches the tying skill.
How hard can it be?
