Re: Pale Yellow Dun 1839

Great looking dirty yellow pattern. This color is good for all kinds of bugs.

Re: Gray Grizzly Flymph

Cool Lance, I have not seen that photo before. Thanks for sharing. It does seem the guard hairs become an extension of the hackle in those two. Ray, It's funny you say that about it being a good "one fly". When I was tying it I was thinking this could be the "Adams" pattern of the flymph world. I ha...

Re: Smaller flymphs

Smallest I have ever done is a #22. With a dubbing rope on a block too!

Re: Tups Jinglers - Different Shades of Partridge

Very cool. I like the jingler idea but I haven't fished it much. I have a friend back in Oregon (Jerry Criss) who fishes a "dry" built the same way but with very short dry hackle in the thorax so the fly sits lower in the water. It is a great fly on a small spring creek with difficult fish. Here is ...

Re: Vixen and Hare Flymph

Ray, I use a Sigma 70mm Macro 1:2.8 for my fly photos. I use a good amount of daylight added to my shots. It is in a sun room so I usually shoot at ISO 200-400 with an aperture of 6.3 to 11 depending on the shot since I move the fly around on different items. I mostly shoot on an old wicker creel in...

Re: Been a while, photo intensive open at own risk ;)

Excellent! All of them. I particularly am drawn to the one with the yellow silk rib.

Re: Vixen and Hare Flymph

Hey, thanks guys for the comments. I appreciate it. I goofed. I was mixing different materials and some how got fox stuck in my head. The dubbing is pink vixen coyote (not fox..I edited the original post) and hare's cheek. I noticed the color of the thread too. I didn't wax the thread and I think th...

Vixen and Hare Flymph

Played around with some dubbing blends today. This one I really liked. Stained vixen coyote underfur and hare's cheek 2:1. Has that tups-like look to it. Tied it with primrose silk and grizzly dyed dun.
