    Default JP's flies step by step...for beginners.Part 2

    Mark thought it would be great to post some step by step tyings for beginners .I will post one every fortnight.Questions and remarks are welcome.
    All these patterns are simple to tie , made to fish not to be exposed in shop windows and have been used for many years on many different waters and fish.

    materials needed:rooster hackle,thread,synthetic fibers,little piece of plastic tube from a ballpen.Sorry some pics are not...great

    First take some hackle fibers from a big feather to make the tail.

    fix the hackle near the eye .

    Use some synthetic fibers to make the wings ,hold the hackle to make the head.

    Turn the hackle about one third of the hook,block it.

    Bring the thread near the tail and put the little piece of plastic tube.

    Finish the body.

    Cut the thread ,put a drop of superglue and spread it on the body(nicer and stronger)It's over!


    You can use the same technique to tie different patterns ....just choose the colors of thread,hackle and wings you want...

    I'm in! I'll be getting some feathers tomorrow that should be better suited to tying flies like this, going to have some tied by the end of the week! I'm loving this trend toward tie-alongs!

    Nice SBS J-P!

    I can tell you all from personal experience that J-P's dry flies float very well in the water and, more importantly, they definitely catch fish!

    Here's a quick throw-together just to try it out, but the hackle has been trimmed since it was far too long. I'll try it again when I have the right materials.

    Thanks Dan, but I can see a lot of changes I need to make with it. Out of curiosity, JP, what size hook do you usually tie this one on?
