Re: Generic March Brown

Thanks Lou and Novabass. Ron, I am not sure about the hook availability in the US. When I was in Japan, I did learn that many different brands of hooks are made by one or two companies. I really liked this hook because it was an up eyed hook (return eye), made from a stout wire, and available in a s...

Generic March Brown

Hi all, I finally was able to log in for two days in a row after multiple attempts over the last few months. This is a tie that worked well for me on a recent trip. It is a generic tie but I really like the hook, which I found when I was in Japan. I am not sure the brand but believe it is a Tiemco a...

Purple gnat

Hi all, This fall, I did a lot of fishing on some new water, which was nice. The purple gnat was a top producer for me and I used my 2 wt and 4 wt David Reid bamboo trout spey rods. It was something new and a nice change to swing flies on a two handed rod. Hook: Tiemco 102Y size 17 Body: Purple Turk...

Re: Still raining......

Yes, the chickabou tips are in the dubbing loop. It works quite well.

Re: Partridge, brown, and tinsel

I really like that name chocolatey goodness. Perhaps they're a few sweet tooth trout out there. I don't have a lot of materials but it is fun creating flies with what you have.

Re: Partridge, brown, and tinsel

Hi Ray,

I have 2 weeks left and it is not looking promising to fish but I have visited many fly shops and have learned a few interesting tying techniques. It would be nice to consider having some Zoom meetings again.

Take care,
Otto

Partridge, brown, and tinsel

Hi all, I tied this fly yesterday in hopes of getting to fish but the rain is relentless. Of course, it rains every time I plan on exploring and fishing. I only have three weeks left before I head back and hope to at least get one day of fishing in. Interestingly, I saw Steve's post on his simple an...

Re: Mystery feather soft hackle 2.0

Hi Ron,

I got the idea from one of the tiers that I met here in Japan. He twists crystal flash with the barbule and it really looks good. Do you have chick marabou? One of the tiers uses it combined with crystal flash.

Re: Mystery feather soft hackle 2.0

Hi Rick, Thank you for clarifying, and I apologize if I came across as accusational. A while ago, I had an experience with a friend who found some feathers on his property and used them to tie some flies. The flies turned out to be absolutely beautiful. However, when he brought them to a fly tying s...

Re: Mystery feather soft hackle 2.0

Hi Ron, Thanks for the picture of your fly and yes, it looks like you are getting a similar affect. This weekend, I am back in Tokyo and will take pictures of the feather. I first saw a fly tier at the Tokyo show use a barbule form a feather for ribbing and thought it was a great idea. She also woul...
