Wingless Wet "Hatch"

Post by letumgo » Sat Jun 09, 2018 8:45 pm

I spent a couple hours at the vise today tying wingless wet flies. A nice quiet day, spent absorbed in tying.

I ended up with a variety of "this-and-that" patterns.

A bunch of Partridge and Orange, tyed with Jeff's famous orange wool yarn. Love this stuff.

A day well spent I'd say. Lovely wee flies, Ray -- buggy for sure. Love the variety of body materials/techniques.

Ray,
Oh to spend just one hour at your elbow watching and learning and writing notes like a wild man! Your patterns (all of them) are beautiful beyond description! I really like when you get creative and we get to see the end results! They will bode well where ever they land!
Nice stuff Ray! Please plan these quite Sundays at regular intervals! In reality, I know that this is an impossibility because yours is about the most hectic life I have ever seen!
In awe and wonder,
Doug
Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Good golly there is a lot to take in here. Lots to love, but that quill bodied softy with the pronounced peacock thorax in the last pic is so great, with that distinct profile makes me think more spiders should have that feature.
