Intruders

The reports from out west is that there is a lot of water in the rivers, so I thought I’d tie up some intruder-style to bring with me in case I need something bigger than small tubes and doubles. All of these are on 25mm waddington shanks with #4 Partridge hooks

Blue Charm – tube

2015.06.20.dryfly.me.blue_charm

Thread: UNI 6/0 White
Tag: Veevus French tinsel, UNI-Floss yellow
Tail: GP
Body: Black Sealsfur dubbing
Rib: Veevus French tinsel
Wing: Yellow/Red-brown/Black Fox, Angel Hair rainbow
Hackle: Keough Hen Saddle Blue
Sides: JC
Cone: Black

Was inspired from a picture on facebook to do this one. I have a lot of BC on hook and tube from earlier, but a longer variant like this was not there! Tried to tie in the wing as sparsely as possible to get that long flowing feel of it in the water.

Quite times – for a reason

So, it has been quiet here for a while, but it has its reasons: I’ve had a injury that made me not prioritize tying and fishing for a while. Not that I haven’t tied flies, I just haven’t pushed things here on the blog for a while. Everything is getting better now, and salmon & trout season is upon us, so I’ll keep you posted over summer with some pics!

In the meantime, some pics of recent ties:
