    what a beautiful fly. you should name it nooksack. how do you get the head so small?
    #3 11-18-03 4:13am

    I've never fished the nooksack. I don't think the fly deserves a name quite yet. it has no fish to its credit.

    The less thread you use the smaller our head will be. There are various tricks to be employed though. This fly has an underwing of purple marabou, and an overwing of golden pheasant dyed black. After I tied in the marabou, I wrapped in a throat of g.p. This hides the bulk of the marabou clump and allows me to tie the overwing right on to the hook shank. I also tied in the g.p. wings in facing forward and then folded them back over. This makes the head a little larger, but the wing will definitely not come out!

    If you would like a fly, I've been experimenting and I have a half dozen of the things at home. I wouldn't mind dropping one in the mail.

    you say it looks unconventional, but it has the same figure as a mike kinney drangon's tooth.
    nice fly.
    #13 12-18-03 11:26pm

    Good call. A marabou/whole feather mixed wing is not conventional in my book. The fly does borrow heavily from Mike Kinneys flies. I had the dragon's tooth in the back of my mind when I was first tying it.

    Agree with all the compliments above. VERY nice! It also looks much like a large grub pattern that I picked up in a Port Angeles fly shop last fall. That one uses ostrich herl for the primary shape (rear band is blue, fwd is black, w/o any purple) and includes blue-dyed jungle cock, tinsel behind and between bands, and other things to make it more complex to tie. I like yours better--quick to tie with all the same in-water properties. Good job and thanks for sharing!

    Derek - I've got an uncanny nack for finding some
    fish, I think your pattern has some serious
    potential - If you could send me down 1 or 2 I
    would happily try to put them in front of some
    fish. Do you tie any of these in a size 8 or 6.

    Doesn't care how you fish Moderator
    A very good looking fly. I have used a fly very similar to that in a Black Red combination and it has been a good fly for me. If you have any more would you be willing to send me one and allow me to try it out. Thanks for sharing all your flies on here.
