I agree. This is how I tie them.
I really like the peacock on the fly. I tried it a few ways to compare but at the end of the day, I like the peacock.
Stew: Thanks bro. I need help with spelling. I cook... I bake... I fish... but I cant spell!
Here's a recipe online that I have used many times. Its a killer up in BC. Tri-colored tail as others have said, but the key is crystal flash; I like 3-4 stands in the tail, in addition to the ribbbing.
I was told a long time ago that any fly using peacock herl WILL catch fish.:rofl:
And also the spelling is...Woolley. As in Sedro-Woolley :rofl:
As messed up as I get I think I need to get the saliva in bulk quantities. I can't produce it myself as my latest medication is to dry me up and I can't get enough to wet my mouth. and I can get the maribou Floating in clouds around me.
Brown olive and black
EXcept spelllng in this case is woolly as in woollybugger, woolly worm, or woolly mammoth. My favorite publisher says this in all his books.
Damp sponge does the same thing Bob. Just saying.
Bowl or cup of water does too. Don't use your scotch though! It would be a waste of alchol and you could be considered a fly scenter.
Well the good thing about scotch is that if the fishing is too bad you could start licking your flies. The tough part is keeping your friends away from them
Oh no! The spell check Nazi!
I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Maybe a photo of the pattern would help.
Nevermind, one was just posted.
Bob, do you really think you would feel it if it stuck you...?? You are one tenacious old dude!!
That last one is a pretty fat "thin" mint. I guess you can call patterns whatever you want, but it doesn't communicate the essence of the pattern. I'd call that a conehead woollybugger ( which is an excellent fly). IMO, Thin mint tends to have more of a leechy damselfly type profile and less of a crayfish streamer profile. Proportions can make or break fly patterns. Yeah, I know tomatos, tomaatos....
