Photography: Just Because

What a goofball I was. I took the top pic in June of 2011. In October of this year I was driving along. I saw the developing opportunity…same shot as before. There I was driving, trying to catch up, in the rain, using my cell phone (old Blackberry) to capture a shot between windshield wiper swipes. I didn’t quite make it. The original was with my little Pentax Optio W60.

Palmered Hackle: Do It In the Front…Do It In the Rear

What? There are two styles of palmering hackle. Each has its devotees and advocates. I almost always palmer rear to front and I rarely reinforce palmered hackle. If the hackle comes apart from the teeth of fish, well that is something to behold and enjoy! Who cares. If it comes apart by any other means…that should be exceedingly rare. Nonetheless, here are the two methods of palmering the hackle…… The ‘right way’ is now front to rear with wire ribbing wound rear to front over the palmered hackle. Either way one does it, the hackle can be ribbed with wire, tinsel or thread.

This fly has the hackle palmered rear to front with no ribbing.
