Markus,

I'm glad you found a head cement you're comfortable working with.

One of the problems I first encountered when working with Cellire was 'puckering' or 'pruning'. It's a 'wrinkling' of...

Hey, don't get me wrong - I love a small perfect head on most of my flies and strive for such! Although, I'm not as anal about it as I used to be. *g*

speydoc,

Charlie,

If you have an interest in tying the 'Signal Light' on a tube, check out the Winter 2006 edition of "Northwest Flyfishing".

Beautiful dressing, Charlie!

On an aside; Isn't that a Claret fly - you know, with Claret not being an especially popular or successful Steelhead color in the PNW?

How interesting.

I'm fairly well-read in the history and development of many PNW Marabou steelhead and salmon patterns and a pretty fair hand at tying them. I've even had some...

Without digressing into a history lesson or name-dropping, the only thing that the Signal Light and the Undertaker have in common is the split-colored butt/tag IMO.

Pantagonian,

Charlie's recipe is dead-bang on.

If you have access to it, a copy of Dick Stewart & Farrow Allen's "Flies for Steelhead" will yield the original Rx and a good photograph.
