FnS is have been well known in Europe for a few years .Thanks Klops. How's your success with the flies in Skeena vs. Europe?
FnS is easy to tie. You can use any brass or even plastic tubes but simply is much easier and better to tie them on tubes designed for tying them.Klops, these look really good. The FnS is the next pattern I am going to take on. Your post is both timely and exciting for me.
How do you find the boar bristles work out? I am thinking of going with quill bodies but come to understand that a person might get lucky if they pull a set of quill bodies from the pack good enough to use. However boar bristles seem a fine surrogate.
Use of hackle stems seems a bit labor intensive (and wasteful) to tie just FnS, unless they are recycled millinery feathers? Now that's something.
