That's very well done. I have a lot of respect for people who can tie dries with the right proportions....they tend to give me headaches.

Do you have a recipe?

As always, magnificent work. (a) How many wraps of hackle on those legs? (b) wings are formed (profile) how?

DbleHaul - I had you lined up in the crosshairs on this one, but decided to let you go

Thank you, noble Dave. I was implying that the flies give me the headaches, not the tiers. But you knew that.

Tail: dun fibers
Legs :deer hair tied spent style
Body: rust dubbing
Wing : "wing-it" material dun color, cut to shape.

"Wing-It" was a material Doug Swisher marketed around 20 yrs ago. I laid in a large supply.

See the post in the Worldwide Flyfishing Discussion about the bandwidth test originated by Sean. It explains the change which may or may not be permanent.

Thumbs up

That is one nice looking fly. I share Marks respect for someone who can tie properly proportioned dry flies, which this fly is. Sometimes it seems like I tie more cripples than drys. I just don't tie them often enough to get it down.

I stopped tying dries for a while there but once all of the genetic saddles came out (whiting, et) I started tying them again. No substitute for quality hackle if you're trying to prevent headaches at the vise

I agree wholeheartedly about genetic hackle, it's wonderful.
However this pattern doesn't use hackle, it uses deer hair for "legs" and forms a flat platform for the fly to ride low.Great for finicky fish. Also deer hair is great for floatation.
I will post a pic of a similar fly tied w/ a standared hackle style.

I was going to ask the same about the recipes in the archives

Until we upgrade the server we are constantly hitting the bandwidth wall as the number of people increases. Our webmaster is running some tests to see if going to a view-as-needed basis will impact our bandwidth in the interim.

If we are able to obtain the dedicated server we are trying to fund with current auctions (after the show funding, etc) then we should be able to turn images back on again provided we stay within the bandwidth limitations.

We have videos that we have not been able to enjoy, never mind pictures!

Striblue,

I disagree with you about being able to any fly if you can tie a trout fly. I tied trout flies for 25 years before I tied a full-dressed featherwing Atlantic Salmon fly and it looked (still does because my wife insisted on keeping it so that I don't get puffed up) pretty bad despite taking me 3 hours to tie it.

Properly tieing a full-dressed featherwing Atlantic Salmon fly (not a spey fly, dee fly, or simple strip wing like a blue charm) takes a lot more skill than tying a trout fly, including those tiny little #24's. Classic New England featherwing streamers also take a lot more skill than a trout fly. If you doubt this, try tying a full-dressed feather wing or classic New England feather wing streamer and have it both look right and stay together when fished.

Cool mayfly

Could you "SUPER SIZE" that for the Hex hatch? :hehe:

A yellowish/brown body for the big Michigan Caddis (my personal favorite) hatch to come.
