Re: Tups

I have to admit, I don't think I have ever fished a tup's nymph as a #18. I think like most, I enjoy tying the classics as they are described, but my fly box doesn't represent that. There are qualities of some of the classic patterns which cannot be argued against as being very attractive to fish. I...

Re: Sanctuary

A great pattern, simple and effective. I started tying these right away after getting my first copy of Bergman's "Trout". Once upon a time I went through "Trout" and tied all the wingless patterns. Many are what I would call a "fufu pattern" (fancy little attractors) but this pattern is one that I s...

Wools are great! So many options. Super tying Ron, those materials shine together.

Tim, I’m really fond of alpaca and mohair wool. Kid mohair is great stuff. Bill Bailey has some super dyed colors of mohair and kid mohair.

Re: Gordons and Hendricksons

Hey thanks guys! I appreciate all the kind words. I don't tie these often and it had been a while since I worked some out. I tied a bunch but enjoyed it.

Gordons and Hendricksons

Filling an order for some Quill Gordons and Dark Hendrickson wets. Been a while since I tied some of these. Enjoying it though. I broke from tying and took some photos. Thought I would share.

Re: Slade's Secret

Cool and interesting pattern. The brown bear hair would have been much finer hair and matched the gold floss color almost perfectly. Was this a trout pattern?
