    Trying to tie a better RS-2 today. This simple fly seems to highlight my weaknesses as a fly tier, so it seems to be a good one to practice.



    RS-2, variant

    Hook: #18 dry
    Thread: Lt Olive, 8/0
    Tails: split microfibers
    Dubbing: mix of olive and grey superfine
    Wing: EP trigger in grey
    Tight lines!

    Tried using a quill for this attempt at a Galloup's BWO Nymph on a #18 hook:




    Not as clean and neat as Flytire's, but the quill did work well for me if I used the lower half (not the tips). I think this will fish!
    Tight lines!

    i tied the quill in by the tip but either way will work
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    Nix,

    Is that a Border Terrier? Great dogs. We've had two of them.

    It was supposed to be a Border Terrier. He's actually a Hobskunky. (1/2 hobgoblin, 1/2 skunk, 1/2 monkey)

    Merica! Orvis Fly Tying contest fly. Highly doubt i'll win. The tail was giving me issues. I wanted a convex flare to it. Oh well...First time doing this wing style with non-select CDC It was a last min thing to say I entered.
