Thanks, Robert! I understand what you've written, but I learn better when I watch it a few times. Save me a seat at your vise at Lyin' & Tyin'.
Thank you for taking the time to write it out. I'll practice a bit along the way.

And great googly moogly, what a beautiful fly!

Yer Pal,
Streamer

Thank you very much for the tips and information. I have a burnishing tool that I made for silk wraps on rods that I polished to a high finish that I may try.
I have one question about what is the best under body material when you want a heavier or tapered body?

You can use heavyer tying thread or they have whats called underbody floss. Its almost like a cotton thread. You would need to get it from a place that has more Salmon fly materials. Unless your going to tie a large salmon fly, your tying thread should be alright. With the thread and underbody floss, your underbody will be firm. If you try to build it up with just floss it can get a little soft so when you wrap your ribbing it may pucker the body instead of laying on top.

it can get a little soft................. it may pucker the body.................... .


1. I don't want a heavier body. It's already too heavy as it is.

2. I know all about it getting soft.

3. Yeah, mine's a little too puckered in too many places.

Wait a minute. Are we talking about the same thing?

Durn pretty fly Plumbob! you keep this up....I'm gonna be buying funky feathers on Ebay and tying a few just for kicks......my fly for last week was actually meant to get a rise out of Blake about using belly hair.....but since he was in hiding....it went un-noticed :evil: though I do have to say I kinda enjoyed tying something like that....I just don't see myself ever really fishing those types of flies. Again....real nice work! :)

This one I will keep for a display box, my bloopers I give to this other guy to fish with, my hoppers and EHC's work to good to try fishin with them kind of streamers, tie them more for fun.


Uhhhh, I've seen some of those bloopers you gave to that "other guy". :roll: If I recall correctly, the bloopers you mention are not bloopers on you part, but imperfections in the chosen feathers. ;)

The "bloopers" I've seen are display quality as well! ;)

Ralph :D
