Looks nice.

I've attempted to alter/tint grizzly hackle with Pantone or Prismacolor markers, but the color doesn't adhere.

I just used a permanent brown sharpie. Honestly, I do not know how the color will hold up....figured it would stick....but it just might not.

More experimenting to do.

Medium/dark ginger = poor man's cree

I never could understand the infatuation with cree when very few patterns even require it

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Cree is just one of those things you have whether or not you need it. I've had the same cape for over 30 years and I figure it'll be a lifetime supply

Default Re: Made my own Cree

when i get below size 18 flies I don't like using two feathers. That's my weakness,,my own need,,or problem you might say. I'm sure others do not feel the same. Dark barred ginger is close and that's what I use right now,,but if i can 'make' an Adams,,or any fly that calls for a grizzly and brown,,, with one feather by just coloring in some bars,,why not ?

I think trying new things is one of the fun parts about fly fishing and tying. If I started worrying about what I really need I wouldn't be fly fishing, hardly utilitarian for someone living in a city with a job that pays the bills, it is about pleasure, creativity, and relaxation. I have a herbert miner variant that is close enough for a one feather adams but won't stop me from checking out cree, whether or not it is required. Part of the fun, for me at least.

I use a lot of sharpies, mainly for barring streamers. It holds up surprisingly well but it does fade in time. But the fading often looks more natural. The nice thing about it is you can just re-mark them if it fades too much. A little harder to do if its a palmered hackle tho.
