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: Blue Moon Caddis Pupa Pattern

Be it novelty, intrigue or curiosity, the blue thing has struck a chord of late. I have noted a few other tiers using blue abdomens and beads on their nymph patterns. This is just a fun concept to experiment with this coming year. The fly was constructed on a size 12 nymph hook. The bead is a blue, ‘metallic’ colored, plastic bead and there are several wraps of lead behind the bead in the thorax area. A dubbed abdomen of blended peacock and amber UV Ice Dub was wound up the shank and the thorax leg/wing effect is from a dubbing brush from Fly Tying Specialties. (Be patient with their website. Their products are outstanding if not yet shown to their full potential).
