Not My Pattern, But This Looks Killer!
 
YouTube - atado de moscas capitulo I
I'm going to tie a few of these pronto! Looks like it would be great in small
and larger sizes, and a simple pattern to tie.

It is a good looking fly! I only "press one for english" and some Turkish that I haven't used in a few years. Any translations for the materials?

OK, did a little research online and found this site for translations:

Yahoo! Babel Fish - Text Translation and Web Page Translation

Might be good for everyone to use for travel, etc.

Looks like it's red deer hair (I'm guessing elk or deer would be OK, since red deer are normally found in Europe)

The wings and legs are turkey.

ciervo= deer hair
Pavo= turkey

It looks like he simply ties a knot in the turkey to form the legs. It's not clear
how many pieces of turkey he uses, but I'll try it with two.

So did you ever try to tie this fly? If so, how did it turn out? How many pieces of turkey did you use? I'm thinking of trying this one out.

Hi Jose,
No: I actually forgot about this pattern until you posted:confused: !

I looked at the video again and I think you were right, it seems to be just a knot in the turkey. I'm going to try to tie this tonight. I'll post to let you know how it turns out. Thanks for the initial post on it.

I have been making legs out of Pheasant Tail with the knot thing...Never thought about turkey, but then Pheasant is cheaper and easier to get.

I tied that fly...sort of. I forgot all about the legs and the wing broke apart on me. I need to try it again tomorrow. I posted the first attempt in the gallery, although I think it may be too big a photo and get deleted. I can't quite figure out how to resize the photo on my mac right now.
