The first of 2018 Thai and tie happens tonight

 

Ronn, I propose a Ranger pattern as Blacker would have tied it.

That's #9 or #10 from the Blacker 15. I think #9 is among my favourites in terms of beauty. Nice body, and a gorgeous wing with a phat slab of Woodduck on the sides of the tippets. I reckon it built on the Parson flies...

 

Good luck, guys, or in Latin: Those of us about to tie salute you...

No we dont need to follow a specific Blacker pattern ... let's take the basic ranger pattern and blacker ize it. 

 

There are several WB patterns that have a Ranger look, so maybe we are de evolutionizing the Rangers or taking them back to their genesis ?

report  #1 2018

Thai

Ronn had the spicey cashew and I did the Beef Salad.

 

Tie

Ronn had already completed a Rangerish but hadn't Blacker ized it 

 

Of course we were met by Hilda sporting her newest pink topping

 

Ronn's been busy filling up his fly shelf

 

This fly has a number of Ronn's favorite feathers on it can you id it?  I'll re post the picture of the patch

 

 

 

 

I asked Ronn about long fibered macaw/parrot in green so he went to the tail box

 

And then we went to his dying notes ... which look a little Blacker ish right?

 

We chatted with Dale ... about the use of any thing on hand, here so you can see the pile of bits and pieces that Ronn pulls in as he's tying

 

We did get some tying done

 

Ronn almost finished

I did .. a bit ranger ish and mostly blacker ish

 

And Ronn did a beautiful addition for my Blacker trilogy ... A BIG thanks buddy

A fantastic evening. Great dinner. Fantastic having Dale visit while we tied via phone. Dale distracted me and I ruined and had to replace a fine small butt! all in all a great time talking and tying as usual. Thanks Dale & Royce.


Happy Trails!
