Dean Crouser’s Art

I have noted the work of Dean Crouser before. Oregon based, he has exceptional painting skills and is a fine gentleman. Check out his new website at www.crouserart.com . Dean does wonderful work with a very reasonable price. Visit his site and admire the watercolors, ceramic tiles and wildlife creations. Gift Certificates are also available. His work completes one of my living room walls.

Fly Tying: Dubbing Brushes

 

Caddis Pupa Style Nymph (Czech w/o backstrap & ribbing)

I have mentioned dubbing brushes before. They are not necessarily superior to standard dubbing techniques, but they are a treat…like a special dessert now and then. I always buy some when attending the FFF fly fishing gathering in Albany, Oregon (March 2011, look for it). Fly Tying Specialties offer them in single, double and triple color options. In the pattern above, I use a 3 color variation. Tie and and wrap. The brushes never fail to please.

Fly Tying: Emerger’s Trailing Shucks

Still experimenting with a variety of CDC wings and Zelon/Antron shucks. I wonder if the ‘tail’ could be doubled over to form a loop and better suggest a nymphal shuck? There are several materials that can suggest the trailing shuck for a Mayfly emergers/stillborns (synthetics like Antron fibers, feather fibers, ostrich herl). I am anxious to get out and test the options in a BWO emergence.
