Nice ties WB. If you add Vt's worms to the mix you will have both carbs and protein covered.

I so need a new fishing partner, one who is properly respectful of his mentor...

Nice flies, WB!!! Now I want to see a pic with your mug alongside of a slab sided brown with one of those flies in its mouth!

Those are very nice. How come they all look alike? When I tie a dozen of something, they always seem to show evidence of random mutation... ;-)

Tight lines,
Bob

Nice job. They look super buggy. What was the recipe?

Thanx!! I actually had to tie a bunch(about a dozen!) before I started cranking them out more consistently proportional. Heres a link to one of the more descriptive step by step recipes I followed.

Hope this helps!

I was wondering when you said Breadcrust. I thought thats not much of an effort! The only pattern I knew as a Beadcrust was from the Orvis tying manual circa 1980. It was basically a sparse soft hackle with orange floss, stripped quill ribbing and grizzly hen hackle. Certainly not near as buggy as your version. Maybe Orvis got it wrong, wouldn't be the first time...ever see the Orvis Ausable Wulff? It used to piss off Fran Betters. Didn't bother him they sold it what bugged Fran was that they never got it right.

BTW when we going to Algonquin?

WB- I like your tie so much I just ordered some grouse tails. I know about splitting the quills but do you soak them? Some videos on YouTube don't show them being soaked.

Glen- I originally tried splitting the quills dry. But ,after soaking them for a few hours found them a lot easier to split. After splitting all the ones you want to use,I put them back in the water bath to soak a bit. Then ,scraped the pith out of them all then again returned them back to the water bath to be taken out one at a time as I tied .Keeps them nice and supple for wrapping over the body.

I`ve actually let them soak for days until I was ready to sit and tie. But,I did put the big bowl of split/depithed quills and water in the fridge in my man cave to keep them cool. Guess it worked, I found them quite easy to work with being so flexible.
Hope this helps!!

While not true to the original, an alternative to the grouse tails that I have utilized over the years (borrowing from Walt Dettes' Coffin fly pattern) is to trim a grizzly hackle down to size. great pattern
