Re: YLI Silk thread junkie

Thanks. You can't order them though they are just for comparison. I have the color card #2 here but have not been able to find #1. Their photo colors are a little saturated on the website.

Re: Gordons and Hendricksons

Always the smooth talker Doug. Love it and always appreciate your comments. I used to tie quite a bit with quill before I found flymphs. I was a Shane Stalcup fan. He has some great patterns with quill and biot.

Re: Tups Flymph

Its not exact. 50/50 pink and yellow mohair wool with a small amount of hare's cheek added. The mohair is hard to mix fluidly so some flies will be a little more yellow and some a little more pink.

Re: YLI Silk thread junkie

Carl that is spectacular. Can you please comment on the dressing.

Tom
The dressing is Hidy's tups blend. Pink and Yellow wool with a pinch of hare's cheek. I use mohair wool. Tied with primrose silk and this fly uses a blue dun hackle. I actually prefer a light rusty dun or honey dun hackle.

Re: Hen cape - what color would call this?

I agree with Golden Badger. Although, not bad for a Greenwell's.
