No work today so i got mine tied up today.
what do you call it?
Its a pattern that i was given on the beach once....then a few months ago i found it on nativetroutflyfishing.com. The author there calls it a "sea run bugger"
I am tying a Double K Reverse Spider
Those are great! Man I gotta bling my traditional spider pattern a bit just to meet the quality.
Very nice Kelvin!
Just a project tester, working on some variations, mainly with materials, I will be submitting 2 of each different colors to total 10.
Actually fun to re examine an older pattern and now that my skills are getting better (started tying in October), and I can play with stuff.
Looks like I miscounted, there is still a spot left If we don't get another person we'll roll with 9.
I'd take that last spot if still available. Just brushed the dust of my tying gear last month after many years away. A bit rusty, but wouldn't mind giving it a shot. Maybe that Snot Dart I saw on the forum a bit ago.
Sounds great! Welcome back to the tying game.
what did you use for the tail/hackle? I can't tell from the picture, but I like it.
Gary, that is Lady Amherst tippets, great action and sexy
Thanks! i like the pattern a lot. I've never tied with Lady Amherst tippets before, but that isn't surprising as there are many many materials that I've yet to play with.
Ok I am done
In the fall these also work in the rivers as October Caddis
They tend to fish just sub-suface
Kelvin, those are really beautiful flies. Nice, nice, nice.
what hook are you using on those?
Dai-Riki #270 Size 6
