I love the soft hackles. I am going to be swinging some next month.


MT, I like the look of the minnow fly. I might have to try something similar for crappie around where I live.

right now, I tie my wets on Mustad R90, which its heritage from the old Mustad 3399. it is heavy, so good for some pocket water, riffle on a floating line.

If I want to keep the fly higher, and there are pictures above of such, I use TMC 900BL. now last time as a guess on the Wharfe last year convince me to switch in future to the TMC 103BL and Stroft leaders.

Some soft hackles. I really like the small starling feathers for these, but darn near any shoulder feather works. Getting ready to tie up some of my favorite muddler variations for a swap on another board- I'll post a pick when they're done.

a fly in my first picture (bottom left) is with a starling skin. use red silk, and iron dun beaver dubbing. not much feather to work with, but it is nice.

Orange Close-Up

First - AJS, Nice Brown and the hackle on your wets are sweet!
Second - AJS, Who's reel is that?
Third - All, TY for the compliments.

I took a couple of orange flies out of the box and did a closeup and did a quick post with a few notes. https://raspberryfisher.wordpress.co...range-wet-fly/ I like to use Ostrich and then a complimentary colour with it. The picture will give you some details on the constructions. I also use seal to compliment the Ostrich.

Keep this wets thing going

Raspberryfisher; 1st Thanks for the tie info and link.2nd The reel is designed and made by me, runs a nice
discreet clicker.

A green finch caught by the cat provided some nice hackles for the near wet, but most where too fine for wrapping! Quail breast on the far wet was my favourite and the fish's. Most of my feathers come from hunters the furry kind
and the two legged ones as suppliers down this part of the world carry limited stock, natural colours lend themselves to browns as they are more critical in their inspection of an artificial where as rainbows can be trigged by bright hot spots in a wet I find. The trigger for browns in coloured water conditions is to have some gold, as a tag, wrap or both. Seems to work for me anyways.

Make our own reel ....

Making a reel will always be a dream, but one I appreciate.

I will use the Orange Wet in the fall, thinking egg, or a Brook Trout stream. Otherwise, I am more likely to keep the "March Brown" that I postd earlier. The mid-season "red" fly is more about subtle, such as the earlier Iron Dun Wet fly with red thread for a tag and head.

If I am doing a metal tag, I have a tendancy to use Copper as a tag.

Somewhere I have some pet bird feathers that I need to play wtith.
