Pattern Oxie

Okay... what's that? Is it supposed to represent a buzzer emerger??
Nah Gene, in that case I would have added gills ;-)

As is, it is representing the less mature stage - the midge larva. In this case a bloodworm.

I tied and posted this one for your north of border lake chironomid anglers.

Now where did I put that Musk Ox hair?

Oh there it is underneath the Platypus wiskers.
:eek:

You and I know this was and is not about the material - I just was given some by a friend and thought it might make decent ribbing. Dark brown fine copper wire would be little or no different. In that case I would have had to give the pattern another name, though:cool:

Yes, I understood that completely.
Some see possibilities in almost anything. Others prefer to stick to the pre-packaged materials. Its all part of the world of fly tying.

Actually I do have some Musk Ox or rather my wife does but it is the fine undercoat spun into a light yarn. She keeps it next to the baby camel down and the Muga silk. I pilfer a little now and then.

Oh for crying out loud! Musk Ox and Camel Down! We may as well go back to urine stained underbelly fur of a vixen fox!!!

Cutting fur off the face of a bunny is as far as I go. I'm not tracking down no Musk Ox in the middle of the night to sneak up on it and give the thing a trim. I've heard they can be a bit persnickety about that sort of thing. :D
