Killer Tups softhackle

Post by Ruard » Mon Apr 13, 2015 10:49 am

William has challenged me about the Killer Tups ;) :D .

So here it is:

And here is the brush you need:

Image

As I do not have a Tup nor the hair of the scrotum of a Tup so I use a mix of dubbing and I do not have the real 477 so I substituted it with the 477 from Veniard and that looks pretty good.

Hook: Emerger #10, it looks like a stonefly hook.
Thread: Danvilles 6/0 Claret
Brush: red copper wire with tups dubbing
Rib: corded 477 sub
Hackle: Golden Plover

So who is next with a Tups Killer or something like that???

Ruard, I'd fish that with high hopes. Nice blend. Now the wheels are turning and I've got a couple directions. I'll try to get something together later. You set the bar high. The red wire as a brush is a nice interpretation. I'm trying to figure out how to bring those two pattens together. Nice job.

Great imagination, Ruard, and excellent tying.

That is killer!
...and a bit tups. :D

Very creative Ruard. Another pattern Trifecta. Tups, killer bug yarn and Plover.

Trying to tie another Killer Tups with the same materials as the first one.

The body is 477 sub with a reinforcement of a red copper wire and the thorax a brush with Tups dubbing and red copper wire made on my dubbing block:
