Hello, my dear friends and fellow classic fly tyers.
Just got my pc back and I can finaly post some more flies. (I could use my phone or my tablet, but I don't like to write on touch-screens)
I want my first fly that I post here this year to be a fly that I found myself fancy a lot, both the history and the tying. Though it might be an overkill among most dryflies, I do think this fly has some real charm. Can't wait to try it out on my South Bend 359 rod.
Now, this is not 100% original, but I am pretty satisfied with the result and the look of it. I made the body pretty fat because I want this to float even in the rapid streams of my homeriver. The hook is an Tiemco 3761 size 8, I choose this hook because I will fish this fly for seatrouts and salmon, and because I think it looks good on such a massive fly.
Here it is, the "All American Overkill" by Wulff and Messinger; The Irresistible Wulff.
