Fly Tying: Fuzz Factors

Fuzz Factor (SwittersB)

Not quite as visual as I had hoped. The pheasant tail and turkey feather fibers got a little overwhelmed by the ostrich, but the peacocks shined.

Fly Tying: Wire Body & Herl Body

A session to experiment with a David Wiltshire tie I noticed…the wire body (Wapsi small) with rib wrapped back up over body. Wrap from the front to the rear and then rib back up over wire under body. A few gaps, but it won’t matter. Sparsely dubbed thorax or a few sparse wraps of rootbeer cactus chenille. Also, he herl bodied fly is Muskrat Gray colored peacock herl by Nature’s Spirit. I had previously commented that the herls did not seem to have much in the way of ‘barbs’ but in fact it is quite fuzzy.
