Re: More Glass Bead Kebari

Lookin' good.
The hackle looks like it was tied in at the hook point with an open spiral to the bead, then collared.
Dubbing counter wrapped through it?

Re: Red Rum (howling at the moon)

Ray,
A little more on that werewolf thorax.
Is that a Paul Beel Frankendub (FrankenFly) blend or just a creation of your magic fingers?
Either way, that looks like it would come alive the moment it hit the water.
I like it. 8-)

Re: Over Sized

I love fishing some of the heavier riffs where the local rainbows like to hold.
Slightly stiffer hackles and a tad longer than usual is often the key to a solid take in those situations.
Those "over sized" would be just the ticket.
Nicely done. 8-)

Re: Golden Plover Breast Feathers

those Golden Plover Breast Feathers are some of the nicest looking game hackles I've ever used and the way they sweep back is great! Gotta get a few more in the future. Bob I've been on the Cookshill waiting list and I think it's up to 40. Steve thinks he will be dead by the time that happens. Put ...

Re: mounting flies in shadow boxes, frames, etc

Nice work, Tom.
I couldn't help but notice the RNTU logo and not to get off topic but.....
I knew a few of your members when I chaired the state council.
Andy B tied one mean winged wet. Bob P helped with our youth camps and
Tim E was just full of energy. A great group of guys.
Small world.

Re: Hare's Ear, Pheasant Tails & Hackles

I have absolutely shitloads of tying stuff collected over about 45 years. And I don’t care. I will continue to collect all sorts of tying material, because I like tying flies of all types, shapes and sizes.. 8-) Now that's funny, I have only been tying for 4 or 5 years and my wife and friends think...

Re: mounting flies in shadow boxes, frames, etc

That is outstanding, Ray.
The watercolor gives it a unique look too.

I have a modest collection of some special flies I really should mount.
I noticed you used a frame with an insert that allows spacing between the matte and glass.
Is that something you made or did you find that in a craft store?
