Saddle Tip Made Buzz

Post by tie2fish » Wed Nov 07, 2018 10:58 am

Hoping to combine the subjects of two recent posts (WiFlyfisher's "Tying with Scrap Feathers" and my "To Make Buzz") I dug out a brown hen saddle with webby, pointed tips and tyed the following:

Man, that thing is really webby. I love those hackles and this thing is all action.

tye2fish, Howdy;

Mr. Bill, never can find the right superlatives for your ties...

may not 'buzzzzz" but will indefinably "phubbbbbbbbttttt"
enough to create some action.

You never cease to inspire me. I have complete confidence this pattern will catch fish.

Bonus points, for combining saddle tips with the buzz construction.

Meow Bill!
This pattern is awesome! Wait until these webs quiver in the micro currents and this pattern will sing, "I am alive so come and get me!" Ray is right (as all of us think alike)! You never stop creating and renewing and inspiring all of us to reach out and respond to the given materials around us! You do an excellent job at this and you are at the top of your game! Bravo Bill!
