Partridge & orange inspired numph ;)

Post by fly_fischa » Fri Mar 04, 2016 12:31 pm

Old meets new :? Sz 16 partridge and orange inspired nymph ;) First time I used Semperfli Spyder thread. I love this thread, thin, plenty strong and lots of bite for mounting materials. :D
Hook Tmc200rbl
Tail/wingcase wood duck
Abdomen/head Semperfli Org Spyder thread 18/0
Overbody clear stretch tube
Thorax seal fur (my own blend)
Legs partridge.

:o Wow!

Karsten - That is a marvelous pattern. Absolutely beautiful, and highly fishable. Nice photos too (understatement).

I'll second what Ray said. Your seal dubbing blend reminds me some of Carl's recent "spectral" nymph.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Thanks Ray and Bill :D
The dubbing blend is a mixture of primarily brown, red, orange, yellow, black and olive. It's called for on an old Aussie nymph pattern I like to tie and use, very buggy and simple to tie once u work out how to tame/manage seals fur ;)

Karsten :D

Karsten, that's looks very attractive. Should grab lots of attention. Look forward to hearing from you about the results.
