Man, I just found out about this pattern yesterday, tied a couple up wtih what I had using my Dave Whitlocks dubbing blends #1 SLF box, they have red fox abdomen and red fox thorax blends already blended up. I use these for all my dubbing needs these days.

The tough part for me was getting the legs in the proper place. I am gonna try to get out after work today, snow coming tomorrow, and see if the fish in the river are receptive.

Dave,

I'm using the same dubbing blend for my ties. Getting Whitlock's dubbing mixtures right; so I've been told, can be challenging. So, I've purchased the same SLF #1 dubbing box that you have. I'll probably start tying them up next week or the week after. I'm going to tie the original pattern / I'll post some pics along the way.

Howdy Mark,

Do you still think you might divide the swap into two groups? I've tied about 6 of the pheasant tail nymphs with degrees of success! There is quite the range unfortunately, but as you said they tend to get a bit more like the photo of the pattern all the time. I am thinking about another nymph called the Barr's Net Builder for a future swap.

You are sure doing a lot of work on this web site, and I for one, really appreciate it.


Thanks

Steve

Here a test fly. I started working on the Red Fox Squirrel Nymph pattern today; right after I finished up the Going Tiny Swap files. This is a #14, weighted with 10 wraps of .015 lead.

It still needs a lot of work, but it's a fun-to-tie pattern.

Great looking fly! Dave Whitlock did one with a squirrel collar if I remember correctly. I have used them with great success. Good pattern!

Thanks. I'm toying really hard with using a partridge hackle; I think that the mottling with a Gray partridge feather would go really well with the black and white squirrel tail; but I want to keep it pretty much the way that DW ties it, and he calls for a ginger hen hackle.

Still plenty of time for some experimentation.
