Re: Soft Hackles Flies for Brodhead Creek Trip

From Carl's instructions: "Body is dark hare mixed with olive and red seal to get a dark brownish/red". You can see the fly, as tied by "Old Hat", and a much better photo, by going to his web site. It's the fly at the top of the page. Look here: https://www.oldhatflytying.com/ Tight Lines- Ken Ken,...

Re: Soft Hackles Flies for Brodhead Creek Trip

Great looking flies. I've never fished the Broadhead so one of these days I have to try to make it. I have one question. Could you tell me what the body is on your Isonychia nymph? Thanks

Re: March Brown Soft Hackle (Tutorial/SBS)

That's a fine looking fly Ray. Thanks for posting. Interesting you included some olive in the dubbing. I've been searching March Brown patterns for the upcoming swap and have only come across one other that used some olive in the body. Would not have thought of that myself. Good job.

Re: Winged Wet Flies for Rough Streams.

Beautiful fly. I'm going to tie some flies with blue thread and see what the trout think. :)

Re: button hole twist

If you're not dead set on silk you might try DMC embroidery floss. It comes in many colors and is not that expensive. Also easy to seperate into smaller strands. Just a suggestion.

Re: Hendrickson Soft Hackles

Thanks guys for the answers to my question about Golden Plover. I've never even seen the feathers in person. I'll keep an eye out for some and get on Cookshill's list. From photos I've seen of flies tied with it it is a beautiful feather. Feathers really are some of natures most beautiful creations.
