Re: Derbyshire Blue Dun (second attempt)

Great tutorial & awesome tie, Ray.

Bait.

I like this kind of written tutorial with notes. More artful & satisfying than a video. You are good at it.

Re: Partridge & Yellow

Great freestone fly, Carl. Simulates a lot of small & medium stonefly species. It's Hidy's pattern, I'm not sure what he used it for. But I agree, stonefly would be appropriate. I was also thinking Mahogany Dun. Getting ready to tie some Mahogany Duns (Great Red Spinner) (Dodsii) for the upcoming s...

Wonderful hook, Carl :D

Thanks for the photo, it answers my question. Now all we have to do is to wait for Kelson and Skues to comment.

Re: Partridge & Yellow

Phil, that is an awesome cape. I have some welsumer hen capes of that same color. Now I know what to call it, Thanks.

Barry, don't worry for a second what direction the discussion takes. For me it's a fun ride. Your tale of fishing the Greenwells on a UK lake is intriguing.

Re: Partridge & Yellow

not only that they say to use Cochybondu and not Greenwells hen, is this a misprint? Now I need Cochybondu more than ever. Does the quest for unattainable materials ever end? I believe that the mean of Cochybondu has changed over the years. It was at one time synonymous with "furnace" (black list o...

Re: Partridge & Yellow

Great topic Steve. The fly is simply gorgeous, well constructed and coupled with your description of your thoughts while on the vise makes it all the better. Thoughts on the color and the dark hook. When it boils down to it, we really have very little understanding of what the trout see or what mig...

Besides fishing the scum line it should be good for a little yellow stonefly hatch. ;)
Yep. And seen them in the scum line too.
