Re: Wet fly twist on a classic dry

Thanks, guys. Letumgo- the moose mane is a fairly durable material. They can break when tying off, but like with starling, a little finesse goes a long way. I have never had one break when wrapping. I trim them an inch or two up from the tip, when they become thicker and the black or white color bec...

Re: TE Pritt's Little Winter Brown

I agree with the above replies. Nice work. Thanks for keeping classic patterns alive. Art on a hook. I have never tied according to classic recipes by using silk. It’s great people are adhering to the old patterns.

Re: TE Pritt's Sandy Moor Game

Joaniebo- nice ties and photo. Thanks for citing the originator. I like the simplicity of the old patterns. To me, they’re art. Always enjoy your posts- they’re a great model and motivation to tie better. What lighting are you using in your photos?

Re: Angler's Club Bulletin Flymphs

I agree with Senecalaker. I love the old patterns. I’d like to sit down and tie and do some fishing with the “oldtimers” who have been around to see the evolution of fly fishing and tying, and are still going back to these old school patterns. Good stuff here. One notion that goes into my great inte...

Here’s a few I played around with. Haven’t fished them yet. Mostly just tying to practice on wings.

Re: Breadcrust

Trifly- I often browse the forum on a slow minute at work, then chaos occurs and I forget to reply. Anyway, that is a very cool looking pattern and a great photo. I will be getting some full spectrum lamps to start taking good pics. What do you use for lighting and backdrop?

Re: Split-thread spring caddis

I’ve been researching the Breadcrust. I see lots of variation. What is the original pattern? What is a proper breadcrust?
