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.

Accomplished fly fisher, Larry Tamiyasu of Portland, Oregon, travels far and wide fly fishing for a variety of fish species. He is an accomplished tier and like most of us, anticipates success with his own creations.

And, more often than not, he and his fishing partners are successful where ever they wet at line.

Fly Tying: Sparkle Chenilles (Not Just for Woolly Buggers)

Chenille bodies are not seen as much anymore for steelhead/salmon patterns. Bodies are slimmer. But, there are some nice chenille’s out there that have more benefit than just for Woolly Buggers. Here, I was playing around to see what the color combos would look like. Most appealing is the chenille’s highlights and that brilliant blue in the wound guinea hackle.
