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.

reduced canuckian black dose sbs- for the salmon fishing

Post by shunned » Sun Nov 14, 2010 7:03 am

this place could use some fucking talent as of late.
tying's a piece of piss, putting this together is ass pain.
here we go...

get some of these...
Image
remember gudebrod thread?
Image
start your thread just before where you'd like your head to end, wind back and be messy.
there'll be a cover up.
Image
lay a thread base for your tag with flat wraps.
Image
tie in some of this at the bottom.
Image
lay a base of thread for the tip.
Image
wind tip, 5 wraps.
Image
wind back along the tag base catching the tinsel on the bottom using flat wraps.
Image
get some of this, buttercup.
Image
don the gloves and split the silk for the tag. hang the other half on the backboard to spoil photos.
Image
tie in silk at bottom.
Image
wind to tinsel and back, catch/tie off at bottom.
Image
the good thing about these flies is you'll use feathers you normally wouldn't.
take the feathers from the top of the chook head as shown here...
Image
fasten tail using 2 wraps, you'll catch the rest in a bit.
Image
get some of this.
Image
tie in at bottom for your rib.
Image
wind thread up body catching everything, doesn't matter... you'll never see it again.
Image
tie off and change thread to 3/0 white.
Image
build up the body using side by each flat wraps. you may think it's a waste but you'll build this up going back and forth twice. don't take the thread to the tag more than once, try to build it tapered.
Image
take the thread to the front stopping just short of where you'll like to finish the head.
Image
get some black silk.
Image
tie it on in the same manner you did the tag. burnish it, it's good for the soul.
Image
don't worry about any imperfections, it's for the fishing.
Image
wind rib, 7 wraps.
Image
tie off silk and rib.
Image
a good way to practice whip finishing is to change thread again.
Image
cover up that white head now. if you miss a bit, don't sweat it... you'll be back.
Image
this is a black hackle. in 2min you're going to hate it.
Image
fold it in half, shiny side out.
here's a tip. put the shaft in some cheap ass hackle pliers. holding the pliers with the outside of your right hand on your lap, hold the feather tip with your left and stroke the barbs back and fold with your right fingers. simple.
Image
tie the hackle in at the bottom with shiny barbs pointing rearward.
Image
now wind it keeping all barbs facing rearward.
Image
part the hackle with your bodkin evenly and pull the barbs down either side.
Image
wind the thread back over the barbs on a rearward angle. \\\
Image
with the remaining errant barbs, use tweezers to pull at the base of each individual barb... you don't want to break the rachis
Image
finished throat.
Image
wing materials... yellow, red and blue goose feather, peacock wing.
Image
looking at the good side of a feather, the barbs on the left will build the near side (the side you can see) and the right the back. use 4 barbs of each feather, each side.
Image
marry the wings. this is the easy bit believe it or not...
Image
mount the wings. this may be the hard bit.
if you bollocks it, take your wings in tweezers and hold them in the steam above the tea kettle.
they'll pop straight back to their original shape.
Image
place a drop of cement on the thread and wing waste, it'll be easier to cut.
go have a drink and/or smoke while it dries. you've earned it.
Image
clip the wing waste on an angle and cover with thread.
Image
select some small eyes from the uppermost part of your jc cape. unless you're really anal with your other flies, you'll never use these.
Image
tie one each side.

do you accept paypal? fine job on that one and you have made some serious progress this year. i have to give some low water type stuff a try again since it's been a skinny water year here. i had let that stuff slip my mind so thanks for the reminder. nice flow of the wing shape along the hook matching the tail. :cool

You know, after you posted this I tied a couple. The first run I fished it I got a grab and I screwed it up. I don't think I have fished it since.
