Do you love big bluegill?
This little guy works well.....I tied this one in Pink and Black for the Big Bluegill board.
Again Don thanks for sharing. Good stuff
THANKS MUCH DON FOR THIS VIDEO AND I REALLY ENJOYED IT A LOT BUDDY !!!!!!!! NICE BUG MAN ..........
Thanks David, I do enjoy sharing the ties that have worked so well for me. .If I could figure out how to make the camera work a little better, these videos might make more sense. ...................Don
David.....if you go to ultralightflyfishing.com , look under step by step fly tying, I also have a written section with pictures there. Just scroll down a little ways past where I posted the videos...maybe page 2 or 3. There are step by step for a bunch of different flies posted there. I just recently posted the videos.......Don
Thanks Don. I got it - nice idea on the contra-rotation palmer hackle.
Ive done pretty much the same thing, using dubbed bodies or peacock herl (any fly worth the name should include peacock....) Never tried the bi-directional hackle, though.
I also tried to sign up for the website, Maybe they'll like me.
Yes David, I like to tie with peacock too.......but I had a lot of flies come apart, so I always use a fine wire over the peacock. Peacock makes a great fly body....I am not very good with dubbing....I can do it
but it seldom comes out looking like something I would want to put on the web...........Don
