Re: Eurasian Plum

The dubbing came from DRAGONtail TENKARA where I bought my Shadowfire rod a few years ago.

I bought the collection box but they have added several other choices since then.

Re: Gray hackle Yellow Flymph

Ray,
I try to keep a white rabbit skin on hand from some Craft Store like JOANN for dyeing select dubbing colors and making Zonker strips. This dubbing was dyed with onion skins and fixed with white vinegar as a mordant.

Bob,
8-) Not a bad imitation at all!!
Those should fish quite well!!

This fly is dedicated to my fishing partner Ken, who got me to finally get into Tenkara a couple of years ago and gave me the Dove wings a few weeks ago!

ronr,

Oregon's fish learned years ago that the Mosquito pattern was just a disguise for Mayflies. ;)

I remember the hot fly there one year was a Green Pipe Cleaner wrapped around a hook! ;) And the Minam Store was out of pipe cleaners. :lol:
