Thread: Nice fly

  1. Default Nice fly

    I like this one too .....



    I'm tying flies a LOT messier than usual these days. A combination of time, as well as belief they actually do fool more fish that way

    a short question: is the white tuft for sighting, or to act as form of wing impression?
    it seems that you also have a piece of closed cell foam to help with the floating?

    Sorry, should have said it was not my tie (image from http://raspberryfisher.wordpress.com) ... simply posting some flies I'm finding and that I'm planning to tie and fish (at some stage).

    For me personally the antron/wing is there as a wing. Yes, it will help (especially me) with spotting it, but I see it as a wing. The foam post is probably to help float it, but I don't think it would have problems floating without it. There is a lot to keep that fly up.
