Thumbing Through Some SBSs

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

супер саржа (изменение)

Image

A Russian dashboard pattern; you could whip out a bunch of these in your Lada in the hour before the hatch starts. Added the CH underwing for a bit of sparkle.


hook – Dai Riki 320 #14
thread/body - UTC 140 tan
shuck - deer hair butts
underwing - Congo Hair white
wing/head - deer hair


mash barb, start thread

Image


clean, stack, measure (shank + gap width) a clump of deer hair; tie in, pull tight but don't release the butts so the hair stays on top of the shank

Image

Image


wrap the butts back to the bend

Image


smooth out the body and tie in CH

Image


move thread gap width back from eye, trim butts

Image


pull deer hair back/on top, tie down

Image

Image

Image


whip finish, SHHAN all thread wraps, trim underwing even with tips

Image

Image

Image
These things are gone forever
Over a long time ago, oh yeah

Fatal Attractor

Image

Not to be confused with Dan Blanton's Fatal Attraction. Found this on the Hatch site; made a few changes in the winging sequence but the results are pretty much the same.

hook – Dai Riki 320 #12
thread - Danville 6/0 red
tail - Krystal Flash red
body - Ice Dub cadis green
rear wing - deer hair
upright wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - grizzly

mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark; tie in KF, fold, wrap to bend, trim (shank length)

Image

Image

Image


dub thread/dub body

Image

Image


tie in a clump of CH at 3/4 mark; post wings

Image

Image


back to the 2/3 mark, clean, stack, measure (1/2 tail length) a clump of deer hair; trim to length, tie in (tried tying the deer hair first but couldn't keep the Congo Hair from sliding down the ramp when I tried to tie it in; this sequence is a bit cumbersome, but works)

Image

Image


tie in hackle

Image


wrap hackle; tie off/trim, whip finish, SHHAN

Image


trim wing

Image

Image

Rogue HedgeHopper

Image

The multi hi-tie Hedgehog wing conveniently fit within the segmented Rogue chassis. 1mm foam might be a bit thin for this application; may try it with standard 2mm.


hook – Dai Riki 280 #6
thread/body - UTC 140 tan
body/head - 1mm foam tan
wing - deer hair
legs - medium rubber corn snake
indicator - 1mm foam orange

Image

Image


fold, insert needle; mount needle in vise, start thread

Image

Image


pull foam forward, take a couple wraps of thread to create 1st segment

Image

Image


pull foam back, split the uprights with thread, take a few more wraps

Image


create next segment

Image


one more time; half hitch x 2, SHHAN on the wraps, slide it off the needle

Image

Image


mash barb, start thread, wrap to point above barb

Image


lay foam on the shank, tie on hook with a few firm wraps

Image

Image


pull foam back, clean, stack, measure (tips past bend) a clump of deer hair; trim and tie in

Image

Image


pull foam forward; tie down

Image


repeat

Image

Image


tie in legs

Image


one more time

Image

Image

Image

Image


pull foam back, wrap to eye; pull foam forward, tie down, wrap back to base of wing

Image

Image

Image


pull foam back, tie down, trim

Image

Adams Superfly

Image

Not one I'll be tying with regularity; foam is so much easier. Did not know Ron O'Neal was a fly fisherman; don't ask no questions why.


hook – Dai Riki 135 #12
thread/body - UTC 140 grey brown
core - 7lb mono
tail - stripped hackle stems grizzly
abdomen - elk hair dun
thorax - muskrat
wing - hen grizzly
hackle - grizzly/brown

put a loop on the end of the mono

Image


mash barb, start thread at mid-point, tie in mono

Image

Image


prep hackle stems; tie in

Image

Image


hook mono onto gallows; clean, stack some elk, trim butts/tie in, allowing hair to encircle hook

Image

Image


pull fibers back along mono, rib up (shank length), and back to base

Image

Image


trim mono, elk and hackle stems

Image


measure (shank length) a pair of hackle tips, set convex to convex, tie in, set upright with wraps on either side of base

Image

Image

Image

Image


set dihedral, leaning towards the horizontal, with Figure-8 wraps at wing base

Image


tie in thread loop

Image


tie in hackles

Image


wrap hackles (tried wrapping one at a time - not recommended; also, you want to use hackle with the thinnest stems you can find) up (thorax width) and back down; tie off/trim tips (I should have dubbed the thorax before the hackle; it would have been much easier)

Image

Image


stroke hackle fibers back

Image


dub thread/dub thorax

Image

Image


pull hackle over thorax; tie down

Image


tie off/trim, whip finish, SHHAN; them Fokkers were Messerschmitts

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


wrap to 2/3 mark; tie off/trim

Image


clean, stack, measure (tips to tail) another clump of deer hair; trim to length, tie in

Johnson's Waterwalker (Carnage variation)

Image


clean, stack, measure (tips to end of body) a clump of deer hair, trim butts, tie in (thread popped at this point, didn't have enough left on the spool to continue, so subbed black until fly shop opened); set wing upright with a few wraps behind

divide and post wings (return of the purple thread)

Image

Image


tie in hackles (shiny side out)

Image


dub thread/dub thorax; finish at base of wings
