Fly Tying for Life & Varied Current Speeds

John Larison @ FlyFisherman

Small piece on current speeds, fly tying material’s undulation capacity in certain current speeds and fly shape. The piece centers upon Steelhead patterns, but is helpful toward streamer patterns in general. Steelhead patterns have ‘progressed’ from chenille, wool, tinsel, Calf Tail, hen hackle, teal and mallard. I don’t know if more fish are caught with today’s busier patterns than with the older stiffer patterns, which seemed dependent upon colors and contrast. The guides and active anglers would know for sure. Click on the fly pattern several times until you zoom in on the beauty of those feather fibers.

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: Spey Flies (Slut Beads & a Stinger)

Last night, Tony Muncy spent some time tying and eating some BBQ’d steelhead with friends. Fly tying is most often a singular pursuit at home. When enjoyed with a few others, whether indoors or out, it is enjoyable and often fruitful in what you learn and share. The following pics are a couple patterns’ dissected parts.

Spey Flies (frodins, intruders, popsicles sure, but the classics still have a place)

The classic spey flies still hold a special place for clean lines and simple efficiency. Temple Dog, Arctic Fox and marabou undulate their way into our fish seduction psyche with good cause. But, the traditional spey flies still have a place in our Atlantic Salmon and Summer Steelhead arsenal and in larger sizes the Winter repertoire. I am by no means an expert on the history or suitability of fly design. I just find this a pretty fly to display and watch being tied.

Tube Fly Tutorial by GFF & Larsen

Dirty Whites~Ken Bonde Larsen

Pretty much goes without saying that the GFF site is so comprehensive, that I almost hesitate to mention it. However, there has to be some beginners (which this site is meant for) that will benefit from a tip toward the site. A great site on how to’s for the beginner to the pro. The tutorial on the Dirty Whites is perfect and each photo can be enlarged to provide the necessary details for constructing a F.I.T.S. (Frodin) tube fly.
