Re: Nothing to write home about

Those look fantastic Roadkill, and just the look I was going for.

Maybe I could think of new fly deigns and just let you all tie them up? :D

Ray, you have given me an idea. I'll see what I can come up with by using some of the colors of my Tartan. But no promises.

Re: Tups Jinglers - Different Shades of Partridge

Those are fantastic! I see what you mean about how the hackle color has on the appearance of the fly.

Very well done. I never have been good at putting colors together like that.

Nothing to write home about

But it's just a fly that's like many, but I put a red streak down the sides. I think it looks alright, but I'm somewhat new to this. I don't know if this fly exists or not, but if it does, what's it's name? Hook: Partridge Patriot SLD2 Hackle: Starling Body: Black Peacock ( I forgot to wrap tinsel a...

Re: Stewart's Red Spider tied by Leisenring

O.k., I see the reddish ting to the hackle now. And everyone's explanation makes sense, so I thank you all for sharing your info on that.

You all are posting flies so often I can't keep up. Which really is a good thing for me so I can learn new flies. :D

Re: Stewart's Red Spider tied by Leisenring

I have an obviously dumb question. I know Stewarts Red Spider is a popular fly, but what in the photo derives it to be called a Red Spider? Looks more beige to me.

Re: Fresh New York city sidewalk kill

I'd leave it alone. It's not worth catching a new disease, and there's not enough toilet paper in the stores to stock up on. :mrgreen:

Re: Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle

That is a gorgeous looking fly. Heck, I'd bite it because it looks so good. I even have the materials to tie it, so I must tie some this weekend.
Thanks for sharing this fly, and welcome to the forum!

Re: Type of water

All of you have built my confidence, and I thank you all. Reading water I can do, and I do stay away from areas that don't hold much cover. When fishing dries or nymphs, I can see what's happening with dries, or have some sort of idea what's near the bottom. It's what's in between the two I can't se...

Re: New member intro

Those are beautiful flies Dubbin.

Do you find a difference in the number of hook ups with the flies with the red next to the eye? I have found with some of my flies if I tie a red hot spot around the collar, it seems I get more takes than I do with the flies that don't have a red collar.
