For what it's worth, here's a step-by-step view of a recent tie.

Cheers, Dan

Tip/Tag/Tail. Tried to incorporate a taper beginning all the way back at the tip. Accidentally burnished in a fuzzball, but it fell off later.



Here's the double veiling. Back-to-back strips of married goose, with ringneck over (doubled so the good sides are out on both sides).



Herl butt (which I was particularly chuffed about), and a build up of the next tapered underbody segment after tying in this section's tinsel).



Down & back silk, tinsel wrapped, top & bottom ringneck (each doubled so the good sides are out on both sides), & a herl butt (that is rubbish compared to the 1st).



Built up the next underbody section after tying in the body hackle, floss rib & tinsel rib.



Finished body segment (before working the hackle to get more of a "swept" effect).



Badger throat & grizzly underwing. Ended up shortening the underwing a tad after this shot. You can see my "man-handling" slid some of the tinsel/veiling out of alignment.



Married wing tied in. Next a sparse ringneck collar.



Final fly after a little grooming.

Have been constantly amazed at the tiers here and didn't realize how much work is involved to create these masterpieces but a couple questions, 1) will you actually swing that beauty and 2) did it take a whole spool of thread to make that under body? That's just crazy.

sick tying! Great underbodies make great flies. Your tapers are beautiful.

A very nice SBS. Thank you for taking the time to snap some SBS pictures.

Hi Dan,

You have presented a great SBS. There is little to say after the comments above by Mike, Gary, Jin and others. I agree with all of them. Thanks for taking the time to show us your detailed steps (SBS).

This is a terrific fly and the pics showing the build really show your skill. Your fly is so reminiscent of a tier whose flies I truly enjoy. Great body!!!

After looking through this SBS, I think I will spend a lot more time building the body and burnishing it well in my next ties! Thanks for the schoolin'!
