Re: Woodcock and Fox Flymph

Great flies and photos William. If I picked a favourite, it'd be the last. Woodcock, seal and fox. That shorter shank and stronger hook cry out Pick Me! in There's beautiful gold in your woodcock too. That looks far closer to plover (as already mentioned) than the brown woodcock we buy here. Those f...

Great balls of steel William, what have you done!

Re: Deleatidium Flymph

Bill, that is subtle and beautiful for so many reasons. The double stripped hackle technique is a new one to me. Not something I'd have considered on a soft hackle/flymph due to the complexity of getting the job done. I'm presently struggling with 2 hackles on a #8 rabbit lure! Great skills Bill. I...

Re: Early Spring Spider

That is the business Bill.
Very nice.
How did you tie the hackle in, reverse, tip first or tip last?

Re: Hare's Lug & Plover Drake

Very nice looking fly.
Am sure it looks just as nice from the front. The plover is a beautifully marked hackle.
We don't have green drakes as far as I know but it'd do well here in NZ.

Re: GRHE Dark Version

It's a beauty Doug, right down to the Shanerized materials used.
Nice description that!

Re: Your favorite hook

Hi Barry, from a non-traditional view, I'm liking the Kamasan B170.
It is a lighter wire than some hooks but strong and reliable.
I like the length of the shank for tying wingless wets.

Re: Holiday staples

Got to use them today William.
All but one fish took these wingless wets. Thank goodness!
Am sure you could whip up rows of these in different sizes AND use separately spun bodies.
I would like to see those.

Re: Holiday staples

Hi Doug, Thanks for your comments and encouragement. Right now I'm enjoying a fuller look to these flies. Fish sure do take the thin, slim models but I'm liking the look of these more. I've been using GSP thread for a while and found it surprisingly pleasant to dub with. It is extremely smooth and s...

Re: Holiday staples

Unless there's a rise Ray, I fish them behind a beadhead nymph.
If a fish takes the beadhead, I get quite offended!
