What's in your vise?

Longer shank like streamer type? I think I heard that you’re trying to get by without articulations in the body.

Sort of. With the above, I tied most of the materials on the shank of the hook, then tied a shorter shank off the bend to connect the tail to. I also tied some materials to that shank (which inhibits water flow over the tail. That back shank is what I think I need to lengthen and tie less stuff on it, just have it be for the tail. I'll try to shoot some pics of some of that process once we get back from 5 days in the Wallowa's (leaving tomorrow!).

Yeah, my most recent 8-9" flies, I've tied just on the Ahrex TP 4/0 hooks and they move really really well. Just experimenting with these tails.

Another easy-to-tie floater from the folks at Flyfishfood; hopper/stonefly/general attractor. Just a couple minor changes, due to availability of materials, but the results are similar (and yes, I forgot to pinch the barb). Here’s the video if you’re interested.

hook - Dai Riki 075 #8
thread - Veevus 8/0 tan
body - Ice Dub hare’s ear tan
legs - medium rubber cornsnake
wing - Congo Hair shiner tan
underwing/head - 2mm foam tan
indicator - 2mm foam orange

Regards,
Scott

Definitely tied this one more as a hopper than a stonefly. Here’s the video if you’re interested.

thread - UTC 140 tan
body - Ice Dub hare’s ear tan
tail/legs - medium rubber golden stone
wing - Congo Hair shiner tan
