Angler's Club Bulletin Flymphs

Post by Old Hat » Thu Oct 18, 2018 4:56 pm

Finished up photographing the Hidy flymphs I tied from the Angler's Club Bulletin, Vol. 53, No.3, Autumn, 1974.

There were 6 patterns published in this bulletin. The patterns did not list tails or (whisps) but the photos showed tails on each pattern except the Brown Hackle.

A big thanks goes out to Ray and William for helping me out with the ash silk and samples of suitable replacements.

Also, with a bit of embarrassment, I have lost/forgotten who sent me the hooks I used for these patterns. Nice round bend, forged, looped eye...I'm pretty sure it was someone on this forum.

Here is photo of the patterns and their recipes.

I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Brown Hackle - edited: just realized the golden badger hackle color didn't really come through with the light in the photo. It is golden badger though.

Outstanding (not in the rain), looking flies!!! 8-)

As usual, your pix are some of the bestest.

Are you going to frame this set of flies? It would make a beautiful set, mounted around the old b/w bulletin image and patterns.

Good stuff Carl. Your attention to detail is admirable.

Cool hooks! Barbless up-eyes? Neat!

Awesome!

What I really enjoy seeing are the actual fly pattern photographs to go along with the clipping from the old 1974 bulletin.

Thanks!

John

PS: I wonder if we need a Flymph sub-forum so posts like this do not get lost in the sea of other posts for wingless wets.
