Carl, how about posting a photo of your 'folded upright wing' pattern design?

Thanks,

John

It is just a Clyde style folded wing but I'll try to tie one for you Hendrickson a get a photo up.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

I have never heard of a "Clyde style folded wing". :-)

It doesn't have to be specific to Hendrickson. Thanks!

You can put it in front or behind your hackle. It is a rather easy method but very functional. Its how I did this Greenwell's.

Carl, thank you for the Clyde example. Now I remember reading about that style wet fly wing.

Wasn't the Clyde style upright wing design created with the belief when fished in fast water the wing would not fall flat against the body?

I'm not sure.

The wing on this one is tied folded and upright but I don't think the fly itself is quite sparse enough for Clyde style. Just wanted to make that clear. I wasn't trying to tie the fly Clyde, just using that wing method on it.

The Derbyshire style is very similar, and could easily be adapted to create a regional hendrickson variant.

This whole thread is amazing John. I really enjoy seeing your fly patterns, along with the insect photos, then seeing the flies other members tye and fish with. Great discussion and examples by all.

That's a killer looking fly Ray. Look at the shadow that thing throws. What fish would pass that up? Best of both worlds in how I would approach the hatching duns with a wet fly.
