Fly Tying (Dubbing’s Master’s Degree)

The Goat by SwittersB

The Goat is a stillwater pattern I designed as a dragon fly nymph. The fly was tied on a size 8 hook. It is offered here as a lead in for the dubbed body. The UKFlyDressing site (ScotFly) offers up an excellent summary of all things dubbing.  I also highlighted this same excellent dubbing link for the Casual Dress pattern.

Fly Tying Hooks (Basic Hook Terminology for the Fly Tier and Fly Fisher)

The hook drawing above, for the beginner, is important should you take up fly tying. Otherwise, there are 3 important things to remember for the non-fly tyer: One…the eye is where you tie in the tippet so you can get busy fishing. Two, the barb is what you should crimp down prior to fishing, and Three the point is what will be easier to remove from your flesh or pricey new rain coat if you remember Two. If you do start tying, you will pay attention to all the parts of the hook as they relate to each fly pattern or recipe. (That’s OK, I have a pricey, new raincoat too. My original one gave up the ghost after 18 years)

Gurgler by Lee Haskins (Jack Gartside Pattern)

Tying Instructions for Gurgler

Gartside Passes from Cancer

My personal Gartside favorite was the Sparrow, the kind of suggestive pattern that breathes life into the water. (Singlebarbed)
