Re: Orange Otter

My memory isn't perfect, so I might have posted something in the past about the book called "ORANGE OTTER" written by Christopher Knowles. The book details the life, fishing and fly tying of Rev. Edward Powell of Munslow, Shropshire. I believe that the Reverend caught so many trout that h...

Golden Brown

I found a new to me Hares mask color. It is called Golden Brown. I tied a couple up with Brown Partridge, and a Couple with Brown Pine Squirrel as collars. With a little luck I will be able to try them out next week. The caddis bite isn't really going on, but the trout are taking a few swung soft ha...

Re: Frank Sawyer's Nymphs

No Ray, its the fluff at the bottom of any Dun, Brown, or natural Brahma hackle. Rooster or hen. I apply it in a split thread. Wow, zero waste! I like that! Dale Yes, It's the filoplume from the base of a feather. Their insulation and our super soft when you want lots of life in your pattern. Work ...

Re: Desecrating the Sacred Soft Hackle

Some people have been known to use garden hackle…… I was fishing with a very good friend who was catching ten to my one. Couldn't figure it out. Watched him land a fish, release it, reach into the top pocket of his waders, dress his fly and make another cast. When it got too dark to see to fish any...

Re: Desecrating the Sacred Soft Hackle

I keep looking for something that desecrates the soft hackle and can't find anything, unless you mean beads. If that's the case I've been a desecrator for years. Looking good, Wayne. Ron, psssst. There are some nasty nasty rubber tails. I took a Black and Peacock, a Partridge and Peacock, and a Mar...

Desecrating the Sacred Soft Hackle

When I return from work in 16 days, the first Caddis Hatches should be in swing. I will be nymphing with an indicator, Mono-Rig, swinging for the trout with these patterns. Then run-off will begin, and I will be dredging the softest water, during the highest of flows with these patterns. They will b...
