Another Sorcerer

Good morning everyone....
Thanks again for the inspiration to sit and work at the tying bench a bit more lately...

This one is tied on a #3 BH and has a wing of black swan instead of goose shoulder.

Stay safe...

Do you find the swan nicer to work with? I’ve never used it and have been curious to give it a try

This is one of my favorites! It was one featured in our Speypages fly challenge back in the day. Truly inspiring skill set.

Thanks for posting!

I have trouble with goose. It marries well, but it doesn't have much substance compared with turkey or swan. I use it mostly on smaller flies now ( AJ #3 or smaller) or when I prefer a sparse, brushed out wing.
I tied one of these flies with a goose wing the other day, but after seeing yours I was inspired to tie another...

Swan is much more like turkey than goose, and the fibres marry really well. It is difficult to find, but I think you would find it well worth the search.

Amazing fly! I am really digging this one. As the saying goes, you can fish any colour as long as it is black
