Fly Tying: “Inveigle” Dry

Inveigle: ‘to acquire by ingenuity or flattery’   ‘to entice, lure, or ensnare by flattery or artful talk or inducements’     ‘To win over by coaxing’

This dry fly pattern was tied on a size 14 light wire hook. I used black, 14/o Sheer thread. The tail is Guinea feather barbs. The body (abdomen) is a light dubbing of olive super fine. I tied in an underwing of olive CDC followed by an overwing of white CDC. I tied in a Grizzly feather of dry fly quality in front of the CDC wing. Then  I dubbed a bit of the same dubbing in front of the CDC wing. The hackle was wound three time toward the eye and tied off. A thread head was completed to finish the fly. I am certain this fly will Inveigle the heck out of the trout.

Fly Tying: Emerger~Wet

Just my ongoing kick with CDC and Starling to create a wet fly sort of pattern. I say that because some will take exception to the overly dressed, complicated creation as not in line with the simple silk/floss body and two turns of sparse grey hackle. Buzzer sound here….  To each their own. It must be quite apparent, I am not a traditionalist, even though I do know and respect the origins of certain patterns. I am more in tune with the last times on the water and what worked and presented well.
