Nice flies allaround, friends!
I tied a bunch of shrimp GP's over the weekend, to replenish my supplies. Why? Because it is that time again...for sight-casting on the flats. Not a lot of fish on the flat today, but there will be more, as this month progresses.

Nice Vlad! Stalking the flats for them, now that sounds like even more fun!

So these are done with Steve Farrar's UV blend? They look excellent!


assuming that's addressed to me? Thanks! no, I've moved away from Farrar. These are primarily bucktail, saddle hackle & flash. A couple have marabou tails and a couple have raccoon for tail material.

Getting braver. Tried some stimulators. The bottom one came out better.

I am testing a replacement for Pearsall's Gossamer silk. Found a French silk under the name EPHEMERA SOIE, in size A (approximately). A big wood spool of 100 meters. Not as tight a twist as Gossamer, but the thread still handles well. This colour (625 I believe, as this is on the spool) is similar to the Pearsall's 6A (or A6?).

PARTRIDGE & ORANGE
Ingredients:
-a UK-made, Partridge "Roman Moser" barbless dry-fly hook, # 10
-bees-wax
-a hint of hare's mask
-a ruff feather from a Hungarian partridge neck
-& the EPHEMERA silk of course
-water based cement (if you wish)

I tied it exactly as Dave Hughes advised. Hackle is reverse wound (backward), with silk zig-zagged through the thorax & collar, to the front.
I usually tie soft hackles in tip-first, dries butt-first, but this method seemed to work fine. When wet, the Orange is indistinguishable from Pearsall's Gossamer.
Nice stuff, me thinks. Now I'm going to check out their purple, claret, greens & primrose silks.

I got the silk from a source in Massey, Ontario: flymart.ca (3.90 CAD)

Do you guy's know how amazing your work is? I can see the fish coming up in my mind.

Someday I might figure some of those out, but meanwhile I'm going to FlyMart.

oh hell yeah! nice looking flies!


I've had these dragon tails for a while and finally decided to tie one into something. It'll get the swim test tomorrow...hopefully the fish like it.




Cheers!

Nice tail - that may be the muskiest-looking fly I’ve ever seen.

When I started tying a few months ago, one of my primary goals was to learn how to spin deer hair heads. Finally got a fishable head on my third zoo cougar. Hard to get a good photo of white deer hair, but you get the idea.

Been getting some tying in during this heat wave. Used to heat here in Texas but 106 plus an additional few degrees of heat index factored in has me hunkered down in the AC. I have done up some redfish flies based on the Candy Corn Crawler by Backwater Flies in colors they do not offer. Based my color choices on what I have seen and read many conventional tackle guys use along the coast and what has been effective for me around here for bass. Planning on doing some in more subdued shrimp/baitfish colors.



Of course I have been doing a mess of clousers too. Can never have too many even though the white bass runs are close to 7 months away. I often wonder how they would work with a slab and jig rig during the summer.

I also have a question. Does anyone have a good pattern for the glass minnow? Been going over a couple ideas in my head but haven't reached in conclusions that seem good yet.
