    These are all made from deer hair. Some belly hair, which is typically bleached then dyed to give really vivid colors, and body hair, which is typically natural tan hair dyed in other colors (more muted look). I've also been working on balsa poppers, which are carved, sanded, and painted. Lots of fun, but a lot of work too. I'll post a picture of some balsa poppers I've made.

    Tied up a half dozen craws today. Sorry about the poor photo quality. The camera is having a hard time focusing for some reason.

    My first attempt at a woven stonefly. Tail is a bit short...

    als delaware tiger is the recipe from the book "forgotten flies" by schmookler & sils, fly #13, page 385

    the edson darks had yellow chenille bodies, the edson lights had peacock herl bodies with red throat hackle flies #262 through 273, pages 420-421 (none of the flies on those pages presented a white throat)
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Incredible the patterns you can achieve on the back and sides. Must be some tricky techniques mixing the derr hair to get those markings. Really works of art. Rock on

    Thanks. There are two main techniques in putting deer hair on the hook, spinning and stacking. Spinning creates one solid color around the hook with each clump of hair. Stacking different clumps of hair, one on top of the other, creates the concentric rings of color that give the flies a nice look. I doubt the fish give a flip, but it make tier feel good to get the bug looking good. There are all kinds of videos on line that show you the techniques for spinning, stacking, and trimming the hair, they aren't very hard, just need to understand a few key techniques then take practice to get the hang of it..
