Ostrmidge

Posted 03-29-2017 at 01:00 AM by americanzero

Tied a bumble bee last night, I'm quite happy with how it came out. Dubbed alternating yellow and black segments with some fluffy duck feather wings. Tonight my shining achievement was the Ostrmidge. Size 18 midge hook tied with white ostrich herl, came out looking way buggy. Now I am almost out of hooks. I'm already filling my online cart for aprils order!0

Improving

Posted 03-23-2017 at 12:53 AM by americanzero

Took the night off last night, made up for it tonight. I am mostly still working the same 3-4 patterns I have learned, trying to really get a lock the basic skills.

Gray dun

Posted 03-19-2017 at 12:05 AM by americanzero

Tied a gray dun tonight! First real success I have had with hackle feathers. Pretty happy with how it came out. Also tied a shwaf and a few others I have already done once. I am getting a better idea of what I need. Blue dubbing, blue thread, pheasant tail feather. Curved point scissors would be helpful. Still fighting the small sized whip finisher, really need to get a normal sized one.

Dragonfly

Posted 03-18-2017 at 12:09 AM by americanzero

I am improving my dubbing skills! I had some bow string wax, and it made a tremendous difference. I didn't do too much tonight, just did an ez-nymph, an emerger, and I made a dragonfly of my own creation. I dunno how it will work. It I think it looks buggy!

Also, I am trying to get some of the turkey hunters I know to pitch in some feathers when they take a bird this year and donate them to Project Healing Waters. That's it for tonight.

Another new material

Posted 03-17-2017 at 01:01 AM by americanzero

I raided my kids craft supplies and found some lengths of rigid yarn. It works like no-dub I think I. Tied and emerging nymph and a red SHWAPF.
