Picric dyed hare's mask

Post by ForumGhillie » Thu Nov 25, 2021 7:47 am

Woke up inspired by Ken's soft hackle tying and I decided to tie a few wingless wets with my favorite blend of picric dyed hare's mask on Pearsall's gossamer silk thread and Partridge G3A/L Wet Heavy Supreme hooks.

It is a welcome change from tying the big stonefly nymph patterns.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving John. That’s an inspiring example of what I’d rather be doing today. But I’m headed off to peel potatoes instead. Spuds ahoy!

Gobble gobble!

Ray, this is the first Thanksgiving with no kids home. The wife bought the smallest turkey I have ever seen. Hopefully, there is meat on it. :lol:

Gobble, gobble.

Partridge G3A/L Wet Heavy Supreme hook. That is my favorite "heavy" wet fly hook to get the soft hackle flies down in the water column further than a light wire hook.

BTW, the turkey turned out to be just the breast and was delicious. :)

Bill,
That Cornish Hen skin is beautiful! I can see many substitutes tucked away in this gorgeous skin! And, the wings are included along with most of the neck where so many of those small hackles live! Thanks for bringing this to us! I like it!
