Default Re: JP's flies step by step...for beginners.

Made it to the Somerset, NJ Show this past weekend, and bought a few bags full of tying materials. I know that I have some "catching-up" to do on this SBS, but here's two of the five JPB Olive's that I tied tonight. Not completely pleased with my hackle work, but I'll keep working at it. Couldn't get the BIC pen idea to work, as the tube wouldn't fit over the eye, and I was using a #14 hook. I'll grab a different pen, and see if that makes a difference.

Here's a couple of photos:

Well, in between and around all of my work travel, I've found some time to tie, getting my "homework" for my tying class completed, pluss catching-up on some of these SBS's.

On the SBS's, I've tied at least five of each, just learning the basic moves, but I'm only showing you two of each, so that constructive criticism can be shared with me.

So here's a pair of my Chub Specials:

A pair of my Ugly Green's:

And three of my Batistou Specials. I tied six of these (so far), two each white, flourescent green, and flourescent pink wings:

So let me know what you think (keeping in mind that I only started tying in early January), and please, any advice for improvement (other than "buy commercially tied flies") is appreciated.

They look great, especially since you just started, they'll definitely catch fish. I believe the biots are tied a little long on the chub specials and you may have to trim down the tails of the ugly greens as well, but other than that they're awesome!

Default Re: JP's flies step by step...for beginners.

Thank you, AJ. I didn't learn how to "X" and pre-glue the tail biots until AFTER I did these, and because of that, I had a difficult time managing the biots separately loose, so they tended to vary in length.

Wasn't sure on the measurement on the Ugly Green tail, but figured that I'd err towards leaving it long, because I can always cut additional later!

And I can't WAIT to tie them on and see if anything with a in finds them appealing! At this point, a 4 oz bluegill caught on my own fly, would be a trophy, for me!

mmmmmm..... buggy!
Looks good fire instructor! I use my nippers to trim flies on the stream, sometimes a little haircut does the trick. Some cone head wooly buggers on a #4 hook are a good way to find some big fish. It is similar to tying the nymphs you did, but with more materials (ie tail, wire, body, etc.)

Default Re: JP's flies step by step...for beginners.

The Flying Moth.This pattern was created by my friend Jan...I know it's ugly and Larry would say weird many may laughbut I've fished it for a complete season and I caught many bows and big chub with it.It's very easy to tie,easy to locate when you fish on sight.You can cast it upstream and"wave"it slowly,it's amazingly efficient for fish hidden under "bathing" branches and bushes.It can also be used casting downstream like a streamer...
Materials:
Hook:Hayabusa nymph bl 12/14
Bead:white 2.8/3.3 mm
Body:any white dubbing will do.I use para post it's faster
Silver wire.
Wing:material used to protect things in packages or a kind of "carpet"used under swimming pool liners

1 fix the parapost and the wire.

That's all folks....I love the way it glides...looks like fish love it too
