Re: Hendrickson soft hackle

Really interesting thread and beautifully tied flies. I think the colour of the body is pretty spot on and like the hackle. My question would be are U intending to fish these as duns and how do you intend to fish them? Might seem like a stupid question but I'd be interested to hear how others would ...

Re: Stendalen

Martin your Rusty ties look pretty damn good M8 ;) I especially like the last two. Embarrassed to admit although I love the look of your Tups and others I've seen, it's a pattern I've never tied nor fished :P Might have to remedy that! I've got some beautiful Tups dub generously sent to me by Ray ab...

Re: Some softhackleish fleas, photo heavy :|

Would you care to share you photo lighting setup with us? Thanks B Bazzer69 My lighting setup for these shots is simple. One cheap office desk lamp with a daylight balanced bulb (my tying light) The reflective surface the flies sit on is an old now dead cellphone. Some crinkled up aluminium foil to...

Thanks Martin, The last fly is a work in progress/experiment that hasn't been for a swim yet! Thought was to use the aftershaft feather in a dubbing loop as a kind of attractor hot spot that looks natural rather than a bright colour, maximum contrast.
