    Hi Dean_mt,

    Nothing but seal dubbing just adds magic to a fly so I call it that lol . Just has that glow to it when it hits the water another one of natures crystal flash. I was fortunate to have an old time salmon fly tyer for a good friend and mentor who gave me a small stash of this wonderful dubbing.

    Well, we're doing pretty well with the P&0 pattern: 10 members have already tyed and posted their flies and I know that we have flies coming from Flytyer07, boser, Mudbug, Greenwood, dean_MT and littledavid123. If the rest of you are going to tie up this pattern or tie and post, then time's starting to get short.

    I'll be posting the step-by-step for the next pattern; the Woolly Bugger, on Sunday morning.

    Great looking flies everyone-- I love all the variations!

    Here's one from me-- Pearsall's orange silk body, some mole fur dubbing for a thorax and 2 turns of natural brownish-gray partridge:

    This is my version of the partridge and orange. It's pretty standard. Hook: 3906b #16; thread: orange; floss: orange; fine gold wire rib; thorax: natural ostrich hurl; partridge hackle trimmed on one side. The only difference at all is in the use of ostrich hurl for the thorax which I've gone to for most of my soft hackles. It's easy to work with, has lots of little moving fibers if that matters and provides that little distinctive bump that keeps the partridge away from the hook.

    Here it is: Daiichi 1150 #12, Orange floss body, antron/hare's ear, and a half turn too much of the dark partridge.

    I forgot how tricky it is to keep floss nice and tight. Note on the tying: I tie soft hackles in the opposite of normal with the tie in tip pointing to the rear. This is a method that Dave Hughes teaches. You leave the tying thread behind the the tie in point and wrap the hackle back toward it, then tie off and make a wrap through the hackle which binds down the stem, then you have to sweep the fibers back a little and tie off the head. It makes for a more durable hackle.

    Bring on the Bugger!

    Very nice, I thought about trying peacock herl for the same reason.

    Great flies - thanks for posting Mark (Peregrines), Dave (Greenwood) and John (dean-MT)!

    Mark, I like the light dubbing on the thorax and the use of the brown hackle on your pattern. Somehow, the body without the ribbing just looks smoother. When Pritt first published the pattern it was just tying thread and hackle; no thorax, no ribbing.

    Bob, I've never thought about using herl as the thorax material; but it makes a lot of sense and, as you say, it has a lot of action in the water. Sort of like tying in a butt behind the hackle. Nice idea! Stripping the barbs off the hackle on the tyed-in and wound side sure gets rid of renegade hackle barbs and really lets you tighten up your hackle. Have you ever stripped the wrong side?? I have!

    John, I'd say you got your floss body down pretty well! I've never tyed in as Hughes teaches, but I think I'll give it a try. I'm always tying the tip forward, hackling forward and tying off the stem forward of the hackle. If I tyed the tip back, hackled back and wove the thread forward through the hackle, I'd expect to be tying off the stem behind the hackle and the weaving of the thread forward would give me a little more security on the hackle staying in place, I guess. I could also see it giving a nice, small head to the fly since there's no stem to tie off in front of the hackle. I'll give it a try next time. Thanks.

    We will bring on the bugger!

    Don't forget to set your clocks ahead tonight if you're in the US.
