I sometimes tie these with quill wings when I dont want to bother with wooduck. Fish dont mind and I find it easier. I should have done a sbs like Dale but I never thought of it until after. I do tie mine a little different but the end result is much the same

 

 Dale, I really enjoyed our chat the other evening,now you know where I am you can drive a million miles for a visit, bring Geert I like pink flies.lol. Would appreciate your take on this on my friend. Thanks, Stephen

 Oh forgot to mention, I always put head cement on the bodies of these but I have been experimenting with some uv resin. Thats why the body is a little lumpy. I had some given to me to try but its quite thick and not sure I like it

Thanks. Lord knows I am no expert on these things.Like I mentioned before I have a habit of sticking stuff on a hook and if it looks ok to me I tie it on and keep going. Would explain why I keep tying wonky salmon flies.lol

That looks very good. Many of these fries were tied like this. It's funny, I'd tie a hen wing any day over a duck quill because I tied so many of them. Never tried duck quill wings until awhile back. The flies were lousy. Haha.

Sits really well.

Great visit. Let's see what happens next. Will they let Geert into canada if he brings pink dubbing?

Is it possible to go wrong with Cree??

Probably not.

With pink?

Yes. Yes it can.

Nice fly scyne. I use Clear Goo Hydro for the bodies. It is very thin and perfect for the job. I think that business went caput so it maybe hard to find.

Thanks, the stuff I tried was wicked thick. I think Solarez makes a thin formula
