Sunturnbrew 4th edition: the last 3 years I have sat down at winter solstice and opened up a bottle of Nøgne Ø, Sunturnbrew. This year the inspiration led to a dee-style, double-black wing pattern. Tied on a #1/0 Long Dee from Gaelic Supreme.
There is a new section on flyhooks.org: http://flyhooks.org/cards – a place where I’ll gather hook cards and pictures of them as I get my hands on them.
If you have cards, or pictures of cards: please contact me!
Today a rather big freestyle session on a #5/0 Harrison Bartleet Long Dee hook. Waiting for a project that requires some very long wings, so I thought I’d spend the Sunday on some practice. Keeping the wing set high and with quite dark tones in the body and wing will contrast well with the grey heron hackle.
