Spey Tying & Fishing: The Under Employed Rebels

 

Fisheads Flies 'n Lore

Via Spey Heads (FB) for Fish Heads Flies and Lore

Indulgent individualism? Rebels without a care? Whatever, they help tweak the realm, even if you hate them, envy them, support them. Sometimes fish bums are akin to foodies, the well traveled, the spoiled few….you want to just slap the shit out of them. Then again, you like knowing them too.

Fly Tying: Pheasant Tail Antennas/Wings

Diving, sinking or tumbling, I am not sure a fish will ever extract the niceties of the barbules of a pheasant tail feather barb. Many synthetics, today, grab the movement or flash that suggest movement/life for an offered replica. But, for a natural material that has just the right color, edginess and durability, Pheasant Tail barbs are a wonder material.

Fly Tying: Classic Wet Wing & Ribbed Hackle

Nice SBS tutorial here on assembling a winged wet fly and the reverse wrapped hackled body with the ribbing material securing the hackle. The technique of wrapping the hackle front to back and wrapping the ribbing forward over the hackle to bind it down has been used in the Elk Hair Caddis. Most often the the hackle is wrapped rear to front, but her is another option at Flytiers.Pl
