Hello everyone!


You probably forgot about me as I was not tying any salmon classics for over than a year. Don't ask me about the reason... really have had no appetite to tie them, he-he.

Now, something turned back and here is my first fly since November 2014!

This is Blue, Grey, and Brown aka Cork Beauty, which is described in E.J. Malone book - the good source for irish flies recipes. As you can see my hands are still remember some tricks, but overall I need to recover.

There I used gut sub, which was provided for the test by Matt Arciaga, great stuff to work with! Thanks, Matt! The head finish is slighlty brownish as I used "real" wax on the thread this time.

The wing is first built with tippet fibres, bustard, goose, wood duck and doubled mallard slips and then brushed out as I like it to be. The fly goes into my irish flybox, which I maybe will use one day. 


Hope, I will continue tying... 


Thanks for watching.

Welcome back! Your fly is a really good comeback. Seems like there is no much rust in your hands. Especially your work with this mixed wing is superb.
