Just sharing a random product of my favorite vice. I've been playing around a lot lately with the "temple dog" style wings. By this I mean the wing is tied forward, some kind of hack is wound to cover threads and then the wing is swung back, and the process is repeated. Creates a very upright wing, even if fairly floppy material is used. Anyway, I like the way the wing looks so I thought I would share. Tag: silver tinsel over which pink floss is wound. Both tied in 1/4 way up the shank, wound to the rear and then back to the tie in point. Rear "fluff": Dubbing ball (black sparkle in this case), then black skunk palmered towards the eye of the hook, then three turns of black marabou. Body: Blue pear braid Eye: Big ass dumbell. Red was the color in stock...so red it is. Front: Dubbing ball (black sparkle in this case), then black skunk palmered towards the eye of the hook. Wing Part 1: Blue flash winging material tied forward and folded over (more or less) Wing Part 2: Three turns of spun Finn Raccoon. PITA. Wing Part 3: Blue flash winging tied in as before, but longer. This fly lands on the desk with an audible "thud." Big, fluffy and should sink like a stone.
