Re: The Scarlet Letter Flymph

The Scarlet Letter Flymph

This variation of my Hare & Copper Flymph is dedicated to the Puritan Hester Prynne.
No bead, no Tron- just silk, rabbit, ribbing wire,& feather. ;) :)

Re: Hare and Copper Flymph

With that bead will it swim “just below or within a few inches of the surface film." ? Johnno, When I fish this fly, it most likely will be trailing 1 or 2 other flymphs or soft hackles with little or no weight free to react to the currents. In some of the stream flows and riffles I fish, any fly w...

Re: Hare and Copper Flymph

Sorry if my flymph offends your sensibilities! I try to follow the only definition I know of from the master of the flymph... "FLYMPH-A WINGLESS ARTIFICIAL FLY with a soft, translucent body of fur or wool which blends with the undercolor of the tying silk when wet, utilizing soft hackle fibers easil...

Re: Team of flies but no droppers.

:?: :?: Ok - So what am I missing here?? I always fish two and three flies, and I never have the tangles everyone is mentioning in this thread. Anyone?

Re: Team of flies but no droppers.

Re: Electric Soft Hackle-a Steelhead flymph

:shock: Steelhead may chase these lovely creations, and perhaps char would too. But I've a hunch the wild browns in my home water would head for their bolt holes if they saw one. ;) :lol: Bill I grant you those stay on the right coast Browns may shrink at the sight of one of these, but those tough ...

Electric Soft Hackle-a Steelhead flymph

Here is a fly style I posted back in 2010 with most of those old photos gone due to a change in the server. This is the original tie I created the night before the FFF 2010 NW Fly Tyers Expo. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1763/42924005742_7fd4e4e418.jpg IMGP3081 by William Lovelace , on Flickr Hook...
