There is something about the Snow Fly wing that just looks so right when set properly. And the subtleties in getting it right.


such a great style of fly.

I can see that fly working pretty much everywhere I fish. Well played.

Yes yes yes! I just tied up a half dozen snow flies the other day... Guess I'll need a dozen more just as you've done here! I love it

Fair enough

When I build the wing, I start at the feather eye and work my way down one side, cutting fibers and hand stacking them to ensure the tips are close to being all lined up. Once I reach an amount of fibers I feel is sufficient for one side, I tie them on with two wraps, and start the opposite side in the same manner. Before I just stripped the fibers off the rachis and hand stacked the ends close as possible, and set as one large wing.

I also received some tips on folding the fibers whilst still on the rachis...

Don't expect too hear much soon, Dingle, as this time of year pbr's can barely tear himself away from baseball coverage long enough to tie, let alone fish.
