another No Name

Had fun tying this one today between things, mostly making believe I am busy at the office. As always, thanks for looking!

Missed this post somehow ...
That is very prawny !!
I like the composition of the wing, yellow with the furnace sides ... very fishy
Nice touch with the flash too.
I know you've been tying with a marabou under collar and it looks great. Have you experimented on a wrapped collar and place the wing assembly over top??
If you are worried about bulk, I recommend that you strip of one side of the blood plume before tying it in. I tie mine in from the tip and use gentle tension to wrap the plume. I only use 1-2 wraps, so the effect when wet is thin and sparse and moves like crazy.

Your tying is very neat and consistent, well done!!


Mike

Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??

Hey Mike, thanks for the compliments and suggestions. I do strip one side of the plume(s), actually that's 2 different colors (rust brown and yellow) with 3 wraps on the brown and then 1 with the yellow. With 4 total wraps, I agree, it does look a bit bulky. I then pull the wraps down to the underside of the shank with a dab of super glue on top and trim what few pieces don't lay down. I am going to lessen both wraps for the sparser look, thanks!
