    Sorry Nix. Still suffering from jet lag. I couldn't resist. Tie them just like a San Juan worm.

    I get that. No fan of air travel, here.

    What is the material (aside from 'thread' and a 'hook')?

    Thanks, Kevin.

    Bean 'n Stretch Glitter. You can get it at Hobby Lobby but they only carry two colors. The red, that looks more pink and silver. Or on Amazon. Comes in more colors on Amazon.

    playing with feathers from a new hungarian partridge skin & some twisted yarn

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Corixa


    Hook: Hayabusa 761 #12
    Rib: Silver wire
    Wing case and legs: Pheasant tail
    Body: Madeira metallic Col. 300
    Thread: Danville 6/0 black

    This particular pattern has its roots in one attributed to a Dr Howard Bell of Blagdon, near Bristol in England, from around the 1920s/30s. An early pioneer of UK Stillwater fishing, he realised that, by imitating insects that the trout expected to see and eat, and by presenting them in a manner that mimicked their progression through the water he had developed a significantly better approach to catching trout. Simple enough to us, but quite different from the salmon flies being used by his contemporaries!

    Bell's Corixa circa. 1930




    Hook: Hayabusa 761 #12 (original would have been varnished white)
    Rib: Brown tying thread
    Wing case and legs: Woodcock wing fibres
    Body: White floss
    Throat hackle: White hen
    Thread: Danville 6/0 brown

    Take care of the fish, and the fishing will take care of itself
