DUBBN, I was strolling through the old posts and came across your squirrel belly variation posts, but the pictures have been lost to the forum...I had been trying to tie some Casual Dress but your flies just knock me out so I was hoping you could post a new picture of the squirrel belly....

You are way too kind.

Since that post the Squirrel Belly was replaced by the Guides Choice Hares Ear. Slip a bead up the tippet above the Squirrel Belly and it will look uncannily like the Guides Choice when wet. In the end, they are both just gussy up'd Hares Ears.

I threw together a Squirrel Belly using a split thread. It is a wonderful pattern. Just one I had forgot about.

Thanks Wayne. I should move this over to our Tutorial section. Great SBS. Your photography is excellent. Love the added detail of the dubbing blend and dubbing method. Much appreciated. ;)

thank you DUBBN. there are a few guys on this forum that share their patterns with us that I keep going back to for inspiration. Those recipes, SBS videos, and images put together by folks like you, Ray, tie2fish, Roadkill, and many others require a lot of work. I'm a relative novice at this fly tying hobby, but I do really enjoy tying and fishing with the flies I tie. I do work hard to do it right, and I learn a ton from you guys.

ronr, this pattern will work with Partridge, or Brahma. I use very few patterns that I feel I have to be exact with the ingredients. Sacrilege , I know.
