Tying Challenge: Week 9
Alright! Let's see something every Smokies fisherman should have in their box. Your favorite Prince Nymph or variation on that pattern... This fly is great for matching the Isonychias and is a good generic attractor nymph as well.
Prince Nymph on a size 14.
George Nymph on a size 12
Been busy with lawn, garden, work, vacation, and various other summer time activities. :smile: I've been meaning to post more. I'll try when i can to get something up. It always helps when I have something already tied up in the box.:smile: This one is a work in progress, I'll pay more attention to the body taper on the next batch.
Hot Wired Prince
Hook: TMC 5262 sz 14
Thread: UNI 6/0 Yellow
Tail: yellow biot
Body: 1 piece green small Ultra wire, 1 piece brassie hot yellow Ultra wire.
Thorax: yellow rabbit dubbing
Hackle: Brown furnace hen hackle
Wings: yellow biot
Flyman, that's a great looking pattern. I've been wanting to try some hotwire patterns and have a question: do you wind both colors of wire simultaneously? Any tips on keeping the wraps consistent would be great...
Pretty standard Bug.
This is a "Formerly"
It may not look good, but it catches fish :smile:
Thanks again David for another chance to share some ideas.
