Photography’s Random Splashes & Observances

WhiteBlossoms4SwittersB

I parked my rig at work and noticed these beautiful blooms on an otherwise ignored hedge.

Old Fence 1 SwittersB

The last signs of an old homestead torn down a few years ago. The corner post and barbed wire don’t support anything now…

0730 hrs, the clock ticks loud now…the room is silent, the sheets rolled up. The scene of the last gasps at life, the scene of months of hospice care…the vigil…the journey…the realities of it all…the final stillness. Now she is gone and the room is quiet except for that ticking of the clock.

Beautiful colors combine to incite, to provoke, to intrude, to piss off….hopefully.

Fly Tying: Ostrich Herl

I was experimenting with two kinds of ostrich herl here. I have used ostrich herl before for The Orb, a Callibaetis emerger pattern. I just thought the pic worth sharing for the qualities of this material. It would have a lot of life to it for a tail, for the gills along the abdomen or up in the thorax area for emerging wings or legs. Long strands incorporated into spey flies are frequently used for increased animation-agitation.

Foxee Prawn for Steelhead (Spey Fly from Charles St. Pierre of Washington State) & The Stinger Hook Setup

St. Pierre's Foxee Prawn

St. Pierre's Foxee Prawn

The fly has the Temple Dog style wing, but kind of in dual form. The body is not smothered by too much palmered hackle fibers and the electrical energy coming off these makes them appear to come with batteries (did I write that?). The fly looks to be pretty aerodynamic and the color combo’s would be interesting.  The wing would not tangle with the stinger hook and the sparkle dubbing puts out light as well.

The flies originator is Charles St. Pierre, the owner of Northwest Speycasting near Seattle, Washington. I shot these just setting on some paper w/ the little Pentax Optio W60 (my tuck in my pocket fishing camera). I didn’t pull out the Macro lens with better lighting for the best affect…to do justice to the patterns.  You get the idea. Arctic Fox, Goat or Temple Dog for the wing will work. Batteries not included.

Stinger Setup for Spey Flies

Stinger Setup (Waddington Shank & Stinger)

Stinger Setup (Waddington Shank & Stinger)The Waddington Shank (double eyed shank) is affixed to the Stinger Hook by Berkeley Fireline (I could be wrong, but I believe the above pic is using a shank with the bend cut off and regular backing material, which was typical until Fireline came to the front...Fireline is stiffer and helps maintain the alignment of stinger to shank.)

Tattoo~Spey Fly (Uliwon Swings For Chrome w/ Cool Tattoo)

Cool tat displayed on Spey Pages. User name: Uliwon, posted the tattoo and a several beautiful chrome behemoths, that took to the swung (er…dredged) fly. Spey Pages is an excellent forum site to peruse and learn technical stuff. Less clicky than many fishing forums…they will treat you with respect.
