Starting to practice for my trout fin plate
Wing collapsed a little and a bit long, I did not have grey schlappen for throat but I think it will fish.

Dear TONY,


That's talking to come in again in full glory !!! hahahaa...yes full glory with posting such a lovely 'classic'...


The "TROUT FIN" serie will allways be a JOY to 'look at' (for me...and I am sure everyone with a heart such flies ...a la 'Bergman')...


YOU did so well here !!!...BRAVO !!!


Allways wellcome ...whenever YOU are or feel ready...or have something to vieuw 'overhere'.   Hope things go well at home !!!




PS...seems/looks a damned 'sharp' hook toooooooooo hahahaha


PS...sometimes I am using a nice soft feather of a 'HOODED CROW' to come to a nice 'grey'...or or or ofcourse my beloved 'grey' HERON...or or or simply  a 'GREY DUN HEN cape' (indifferent natural or dyed dun/grey...) or dying simply Yourself a 'cheap creamy/white indian/chinese cock cape YOU try to obtain/buy in the future...



Voted Sexiest Fly Tyer for 2013

there is no "need" for schlappen for the throat or collar, unless that is what you want to use


Bergman was a commercial tyer who used the webbier hackles of his dry fly necks for his wets.  


For the wing, try using the tip sections of the goose shoulder feather.  it is thicker and has a blunter tip.  you may see a difference when setting the wing.
