Leisenring Flymphs

Post by Old Hat » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:33 am

I'm working this week on tying the Leisenring Flymphs from "The Art of Tying the Wet Fly". Here is the first installment. I'll add more to the thread as I work through them.

Very VERY nice work, Carl.

Nice variety of hooks, too!

Terrific work sir. I am especially fond of the 'Iron Blue Wingless'.

Masterful. These really do channel the ties of his that I have seen.

That is one of my favorites too. A little different than some of iron blue patterns one usually sees.

That’s a perfectly executed series. Will keep those images as templates for my own tying.

Thanks guys. As soon as I finish the set, I'll work on the color a bit more and post them to my website.

I tied my first one yesterday and it didn't look as pretty as these. Need to figure out the spacing needed for the hackle. I picked the pale watery dun as I want a PMD emerger.
