Re: Big, ugly palmer wets

This is seems to be a really nicely designed clamp. I have used the Pettijean set for years, it works great but appears to be a bit clumsier than this newer design.

Re: Big, ugly palmer wets

I can certainly see why that would be a great twilight fly, especially for drakes. I will have to add a couple of these to my tying.

Re: Borderer

Excellent David. Thanks for sharing. I really like the ginger hackle combined with the red and blue/grey dubbing.

Re: Mustad Catalog of Flies

Interesting. I remember, several years ago, reading an article about tying hooks together in this fashion to form these type of streamers.

Yes, some nice bronze peacock sent to me a couple years back by a NZ friend.

Re: English Jay bird

Thanks guys, it is a pattern I found in "Year of the Spider" by Philip Storey and tied a bit more robust. I think he says it is a Pritt pattern "Cinnamon".
