Rogan SBS Part Two            Link to Part One    http://www.classicfl...wtopic=49027

 

 

I put the two wings on the table and cut out the tippets in two different length. Place the tippets inside the wings.

Pic up the wings and put them back to back.

Now brush the end of the wing.

Measure the wing, I hold the wings in my right hand and then I am done I switch hands.

I soak the wing at the tie in point and then compress the roots against the hook.
as much as I can .

Tie in the wing on top of the hook.

Put on the mallard roof, woody and BC and finally the horns of Blue Macaw. Trim the head and varnish.

Thank you for this wonderful effort. I have been meaning to do a strip wing at some point, and this tutorial has given me inspiration.

Thanks for the comments so far. There is obviously a restriction on how many pictures you can post in every thread so that's why it had to be in two parts. I'm sorry for that but I've added some links so it will be easier to navigate.

Thanks for sharing your skills Sven, I will be giving this style of tying a try after seeing this. Are they Rubis scissors that you're useing?

Yes that right, I use my tiny Rubis most of the time and some others to the coarser materials such as ribs, tinsel. I have the model with micro tip and it is very useful and it has an amazing sharpness. If you buy one, it's a good idea to take it directly from the manufacturer. An estimated half the price of what the Tackle Dealer want to be paid.       http://www.rubis.ch/...is-colibri.html

Yes I also have some exactly the same, thats how I recognised them, I got mine for £24 in an auction, I don't use them that much as they are too good to use which kind of defeats the purpose but the auction was for a cancer charity so the money went to good use. But I love the design of them, dare I say 'cutting' edge.

Hi Sven, I have a question. When you are tying in the wing you say you soak it first. With what? I'm asking cause we tied 3 flies this way in Schotland with Mike last time and 2 of my wings came lose after cutting the butt ends. So obviously I didn't do it right :s With dyneema thread and a bobbin holder I could easily fix that but with only a string of thread which breaks when pulling to hard I have this problem. I know wax is part of the trick but not all... Cheers Paul.

Hi Paul. I use saliva for soaking and yes , good sticky wax like Cobblers is an importent part and use a lot off it. Maybe you got some from Mike to try, othervice Pm me your addy and I will send you some good stuff that will do the job. ATB Sven

Hey Sven, great tutorial! Can I ask what you use to brush out the fibres? I tried a comb and a dubbing brush. The comb didn't do much of anything and the dubbing brush managed to bend a few of the fibres.


Only after the last tree has been cut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

Hi Christopher. I usually use a toothbrush but I know there are those who use Velcro. I guess it's a matter of taste. Just be sure that you brush through the wing so you separate all the fibers. It helps to have a thumb between the brush and the wing or add the wing against a soft surface, your pants as an example and make sure that the brush goes through the wing. Best of luck.
