Fly Tying: Ribbing for Flash & Segmentation

I tied two Prince Nymphs. One has ribbing (tinsel) and one does not have ribbing. I used a wider tinsel than I wanted. But, it was all I could find in the drawer. The other Prince Nymph was finished without ribbing. You can see the value of the ribbing. I also attached tying instructions or the Prince Nymph from Charlie’s FlyBox. Note in the tying tutorial the narrower ribbing material. I prefer the way I tied it, but you don’t want to smother one of the best fly tying materials either: peacock herl. The Prince Nymph is a great pattern for streams or lakes. Tying in the biot wing and tail requires a little finessing. I tied this pattern on a size 12 nymph hook. I did not wrap weight on the shank as shown in the tutorial.


T Pin for Suspended Emerger Pattern (Clever)

All the time, you jerk these little babies off of your new clothing and discard them. Here is a use for those, at least worth running an experiment to see if a small corkie device might suspend your emerger pattern just beneath the surface. I think these might come in two thicknesses if memory serves me. Don’t be marauding department stores and pilfering these though……………..   Saw this at Flugbindning Blogspot

I am Mr. Paul Mrozinsky, personal account manager of late Dr.Edward, who died of a cardiac arrest a few years ago leaving behind a large sum of money with a commercial bank in the Island of Seychelles which is a tax free zone, a place where plenty of rich people tend to hide away funds not ready to be used or invested, I am also the Client Service manager of the London branch.
