BLACK FRANCIS here's another spinner from an inland ny stream. lots of variation.

Charlie By the way, love your pictures. It's interesting to see the local variations in the bugs.

Charlie Hey Will,

The body on my fly is deer hair. Bleached on the bottom and brown on the top. I rib it with tan thread and then coat it with flex cement for durability. A bit tedious to tie but it floats like a cork.

WatersideWill Hi

Lovely pattern Charlie- how are doing the body there?

We have H.Limbata and H. Rigida here - I can,t tell the diff but we get quite a colour variation in the hatches- so theres room to fudge

some spinners( iffy pic but you get the idea) - ours look light compared to the one you posted. I was looking for a decent way of mimicing that distinct front wing edge with the organza-

heres a typicalish dun-


and the Ephoron blizzard))

Charlie A Hex spinner.

Charlie A hex dun fresh from lake Erie.

Charlie Will,

This is one of my Hex imitations. The wings on mine tend to twist the leader after a time. The organza stuff looks like it won’t, I will have to give it a try. Thanks for the tip.

fishhead Beauties for sure, Will! VERY buggy! On the Hex and the targeted this sight fishing or blind casting during a hatch? I'm going to assume you flick them out in front of the Carp on the feed and strip when you think the timing is correct........?

Better sign off or you'll be getting lots of orders for DOZENS and dozens of those flies. I wish my flies were as deadly looking as yours.......mine are mostly just DEAD in on your windshield or in your vehicle radiator.......sigh...

WatersideWill Ty for the kind words now you'll never get rid of me

Charlie- the wings are organza tape( craft store) , folded in half then cut- lightly dress the cut edge with Fishing Glue ( a dilute CA in a bottle with a brush applicator). Turn out to be very strong wing !

DbleH- the Ephorons are aimed at Goldeye, the Hex for Whitefish/Carp/Bigmouth Buffalo.

Dble Haul What warmwater species are you targeting with these flies? I know a few rivers around here where the smallmouth go absolutely nuts at times for the Hex hatch, and those flies would be just the ticket.

Great photography!

Can you please send me a dozen by Spring?
Just a FANTASTIC job!

Charlie Very cool flies!

What is the wing material on the dries?

12-08-2005 06:02 AM
juro Total eye candy!

Great work, when people (co-workers, relatives) ask me about fly-tying I would definitely point them to look at these pics as an example of exceptional creativity and like Nick says great job on the photography.

BLACK FRANCIS Will, good stuff! i always like to see someone going out and trying and being inventive. these look like they will work, hopefully you will keep us posted on the sucess of these patterns when the time comes. great work on the photos as well it makes all the difference to take the time to shoot them right and i must say you exposures are spot on with no loss of detail in the highlight areas, not too easy to do especialy with a black background. the reflection adds something to it too, and you managed to eliminate any glare. two thumbs up!
