Re: Big, ugly palmer wets

Re: Big, ugly palmer wets

bocast, nice tie!

I have a couple of CDL hen capes, but they are not tapered enough for how I like them for palmer wet fly patterns. The feathers are shorter and more rounded at the top, at least mine are.

Re: Big, ugly palmer wets

Jim S. recently received a boat load of hen & rooster Metz capes and saddles. He is sending me a couple of Metz capes to see if they will work for my big palmered wet flies.

I couldn't tie it on a tippet, much less dress the fly. Excellent tying, Wayne.
