Tail: PT Crest
Body: UNI-Mylar
Rib: UNI-French
Underwing: Green Krystal flash

This pattern showed up at facebook on a double hook and I had to search it up and give the pattern a go. It is not exactly to the recipe I found since I had to substitute some materials, but the overal pattern is there.

Royal Wulff

dryfly.me.2014.05.27.royal_wulff

Hook: Dai-Riki 305 #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 White
Tail: Premium Deer
Body: Peacock, red floss
Hackle: Whiting Bronze
Wing: Kalf Hair

First time I’m going for a Royal Wulff on the vice. This is a great pattern if you are after trout, it will float forever and give a excellent impression on the surface. I don’t normally tie with calf either, so this was a first on more than one thing

Bibio

dryfly.me.2014.05.19.bibio

Hook: Dai-Riki 305 #13
Thread: Sheer 14/0
Tail: Polychenille
Wing: Hareline Para Post Dark Grey
Body: Hends Superfine
Thorax Cover: 2mm black foam
Legs: 0.5mm stretch nylon

First attempt at this pattern. The bibio hatch can be great and I have had some flies in my box previously, but those I’ve bought. This one is inspired by Andre Brun, but with some slight modifications on material since I didn’t have everything in the original pattern.

Blue & Gold Spey

dryfly.me.2014.04.13.spey_blueHook: Dai-Riki 899 #1/0
Tag: UTC French Tinsel Oval Gold Medium
Body: UNI-Floss Doc.Blue
Rib: UTC French Tinsel Oval Gold Medium
Hackle: Spirit River Spey Hackle
Throat: Guineafowl
Wing: Veniard Mallard Duck Bronze Shoulder Medium

A rather quick test to work with the Mallard wing and the spey hackle. The Blue/Gold in the body came out really good and I think the spey hackle will give it a good deal of life in the water.
