    39 degrees today, but I bet the local LMB will be chasing these in 2-3 weeks.
    Wherever you go, there you are.

    Number two: Medium color nymph
    Tail - 3 short strands from the long tail feather of the cock pheasant (ring neck)
    Body - Hare's ear, tied rough and ribbed with marrow oval gold tinsel. After ribbing, the dubbing is picked out between the ribs with a dubbing needle to suggest the gills of the nymph and to add a softer outline
    Thorax - Same dubbing over padding or fuse wire. Before winding on this dubbing, the wing case feather is tied in at the back of the thorax, upside down and pointing to the tail of the fly
    Wing Case - Bright blue feather from the wing of an English kingfisher, lacquered when in place. This feather, although exactly what I needed to suggest the sparkle of color or light on the wing case, is apt to come apart after some use. I have tried to find a proper substitute and so far the best is a bit of synthetic silk floss, of nearly the same color, heavily lacquered after tying in. It is permanent but not as bright and sparkling as the feather. My good friend, Harry Darbee, the fly tier, recently suggested that the stripped quill from a large feather such as goose or swan could be dyes and used for this purpose. It should be much more nearly permanent than the rather delicate kingfisher feather, but as yet I have not had the opportunity of trying it out.
    Hackle - European partridge, either the gray or brown speckled hackle feather.
    Hook sizes - 10, 12, 14, 16

    Reference - The Fly and the Fish - John Atherton
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Not today, but last week. I tied a bunch of these for a buddy of mine. I gave him a handful one time and he swears by them. Nobody else ties this variation that I can tell (you can't tell from the crappy photo, but they're two toned black and brown). It was his B-day and he's recently been diagnosed with M.S. so I figured I would hook him up (pun intended).

    One of the many fish I caught on one of these last year. A nice 3lb-ish post spawn bass from a little farm pond in S.C. It was a first cast fish...
