Thread: Corn Feed Prince on the Weekly Fly.

    Default Corn Feed Prince on the Weekly Fly.

    A shameless self promotion, but the site has some great tiers and some good flies tied from start to finish. The Weekly Fly

    Great site, I like teh way he packs lead into the bead head to keep it right.

    Biggie: Thanks, that was interesting. Size 4 Prince Nymph, never thought of tying one that big, but I can see in muddy water it would attract fish.

    After finding this fairly awesome fly on one of the later pages- Keyword(s): sasquatch - The Weekly Fly

    I found my way to this link which looks like a really great, and tough fly- Fly - White Noise : This is Fly Daily

    I use dubbing loops fairly often, but have never built them from wire. Seeing that fly makes me think I might have to get a wire-dubbing-brush-building rig. (ref to the Sasquatch/first link)

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    I like the Sasquatch! Very interesting technique using wire as a dubbing loop. I'm going to tie a few of those up.

    Wire is most commonly used with tools like this- Tying tool review, Dubbing block with built in wheel for spinning dubbing brushes. Reviewed by Martin Joergensen - Global FlyFisher

    I'd like to make one up myself, but finding something to replace the spinning wheel with the hook might be a challenge.

    A 1/4" bead??? Not with my rods ! I try to keep beads down to 3/32" and
    sometimes 1/8", and use more non-lead lead. Interesting tip on the
    biot wings.
