Re: Hackle Names vs Colors

If it wasn’t fishing season, I’m sure they would be 50 replies to this post. Hackle, (color in particular)is one of those topics that gets thrashed, beaten to death and argued about endlessly..... all for a good cause of course. I mean who wouldn’t want a “pink dun” or some thing called Coch-y Bondh...

Re: Rhyacophilla, aka Green Rockworn

Ray No - in the 1980s, I bought these pre-made dubbing brushes consisting of two thin strands of copper wire twisted with green dubbing. They were recently rediscovered while I was digging through of my bins of material. Next time I go into my apartment in the city I’ll take some pictures and post t...

John
If you mean the strips of rubber, yes. A very long time ago, we used rubber bands wound around the hook shank, then colored with a permanent marker. This aforementioned pattern tied on the Mustad 37160, was big in Pennsylvania during the mid 1970’s......

Rhyacophilla, aka Green Rockworn

This is one of my all-time early spring favorites when the fish are not looking up. Both the Beaverkill and Lackawaxen are loaded with rhyacophilla and hydropsyche larvae 🐛..... The real trick is to get them down deep on the bottom where they live. I use two laps of sticky back lead tape on the shan...

Great pattern Ray!

Re: Pritt's #4 Little Winter Brown

Me personally, i’d like to tie them heavy. Once they get a few good chews, it thins out the hackle a little bit, like a haircut.....
