I have seen what's left and that was no easy task. One store had a set of wings but they where not preserved properly and smell very unpleasant. I bought a couple of the left over pairs and did not to bad with them. As I was digging through my pile I found a set of wings I had purchased some time in the past so am in business......;)

Sounds like I'm not the only one with a problem getting a hold of the stipulated hook for this project. Is it truly necessary that we all use the exact same hook? If so, perhaps some generous, cherry-picking soul could offer to share?

Tony, the Jungle cock is no problem but the Barred Mandarin for the tail of the Bostwick might be. Got everything else except the claret hackle and goose. Just remembered to look at the thread to-day so I guess I'm a little behind.

The goose is claret as well. I'll take what you can spare on the rest. We can discuss terms. Not sure how to get hold of you but maybe late on next wednesday. I have a TU Dinner meeting that night.

Please toe tag all flies that are being submitted with the Name of the fly and the Tier. Thank you. It will make life easier when it comes to mounting them in the shadow box.

Well had a great weekend at the vise. Not sure if anyone heard any of the swearing coming out of the Deep West Edm. That could have been me. I was moving right along with my group of flies first 2 basically not a problem. Now I know what working with shity material can do. I thought I had a matched pair of white duck quills, guess what, Nota. Tried

to get that to work but to no avale.

 

Just wonder if any one here in edm and going to be out to the meeting Wed have an almost powder blue silk floss.

I thought I had but the stuff I have will not lay down flat.

 

After watch the presentatioin that Gary gave on working with Quill wings it sure made this a whole lot easier.

Gary thank you again for that presentation.

 

Off to the Hole I go. thought I might of seen some white quills there.

 

I too can not wait to see a picture of the finished producted.

Dennis, when I was flossing, ( not my teeth ) I would wet the floss with spit, ( through the mouth then wet my fingers and then rap, :wedgie: ( not the song , silly) the floss. that seemed to work. I am also giving the floss body a coat of head cement, I hope thats ok... :clapping:

If you are using floss or silks, either wash and scrub your hands or use silk gloves that can be purchased at most sewing shops. Flosses and silks easily absorb oil and dirty off your hands. If you are using 4 strand floss, break it down to two strands or even one longer strand. Do not twist it or coat with lacquer as this will give you a unnatural colour on the coating and twisting it simply is not true to Bergmans style. If you are using floss or silk as a rib, break it down to one strand, again it is to lay flat. You may have to wind and take it off and rewind until it get down flat. But thats OK we are only tying 5 or 6 flies each. The Adder fly I tied with twisting the flos and ribbing material is totally wrong. So don't do it that way.

 

Dan no one will hold it against you if you coat the body. Just saying it isn't true to Bergmans flies. But all this is part of the learning curve.
