Re: Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle

I can't say exactly how many different Pheasant Tail dressings I tie and fish! Personally, I believe that just about any fly dressing using Pheasant Tails will catch trout. I tie PT soft hackles with various hackles (Partridge, Golden Plover, European Grouse, Woodcock, Various Hens, etc.) and use ma...

Re: Varying Degrees of Stiffness (play time)

Ray For many years, I kept buying peacock eyes and then using the wider herls below the eyes / off the stem.. But, I gradually ran out of the wider herl until last year when one of my TU fly tying buddies, who also likes to tie soft hackles and spey flies, gave me some of his stash of wider herl.. R...

Re: Varying Degrees of Stiffness (play time)

A couple comments: The "Buzz" fly looks like my Crackleback variation with a partrdige hackle up front. I think I tied a few of these years ago but not sure. Since I'm now tying CBs, will have to add a partridge hackle to a few. Peacock bodied flies have been some of my most effective flies for seve...

Re: Dubbings & Hackles, etc.

You know you guys are just terrible, especially joaniebo, narcobobber, dana, bearbutt, PhilA. It's no wonder I have such a tough time finding fly tying materials to hoard. :D How the hell did I get roped into this?--LOL I was thinking recently how the Coronavirus and other viral nasties are being t...

Dubbings & Hackles, etc.

Over the years, I gathered enough wools, furs, dubbing mixtures, capes, saddles, wings, etc. to keep me (and future generations ) tying flies for many years. So, in the past week or so, I decided to go through a couple Rubbermaid-type storage boxes and "kinda" sort / re-arrange some of them. Good he...

Re: Kimono/Pearsall coordinated numbers

Bill, that is cool. I could have used your setup to put the Lazar shooting line on my new reel last night. It would be a lot faster than a pencil and begging my wife to hold the pencil for a minute. :) Hardy-Ultralite-4000-Reel.jpg My wife held the pencil for two Hardy Ultralite 4000's for new back...

Re: Bronze Peacock & Young Starling

Thanks for the nice comments. This old guy appreciates them. I'd love to tie a bunch more flies with bronze peacock herl bodies but I have two problems, as do most of you. Namely, finding "wide" peacock herl and secondly, "wide bronze-colored" peacock herl. Strung herl is out of the question and bro...
