Sulfur

It started snowing at lunch and the shut down the university, so I came home and tied a quick fly. I was just thinking of summer fishing on the SOHO. Sorry for the bad picture, I took it with my cell phone.

Re: soft hackle crayfish pattern

Old Hat,
I have not thought of tying the legs in a knot. Do you mean tying the knot at the end of legs to make them look jointed. Thanks for the input. Otto

soft hackle crayfish pattern

The local tailwater is not cooperating for trout fishing, so I started thinking about smallmouth fishing this summer. I tied a soft hackle crayfish pattern. Hope it works.

Re: Six Pete Hidy Flymphs from 1974

Lance,
Great post and thanks for sharing with us. Is it to be assumed that the tails are the same as the hen hackle used in each fly? Thanks in advance for your reply. Otto

Re: First catgut

Well that is good question. Absorbable suture in the world of surgery means that it will lose greater than 50% of its tensile strength within 60 days. That does not mean that the suture will be dissolved in that time. Plain gut is absorbed by macrophage enzymatic action. Then they added chromium sal...

Re: 3 Olives

Izaak,
Those are wonderful ties and I like your posts. Not to take away from your post but I am attaching a BWO that I use on a local tailwater stream. It is tied on a #28 daiichi hook. Sorry but I used my phone for the picture and the quality isn't as good as your picture. Otto
