Chicago - A Marbury Bass Fly, tied in hand


Last night I had an inkling to tie up a quick fly, and with another in the vise,  I decided to give this one a go in hand. The original pattern calls for spoonbill feathers in the wing, but in a pinch, I used some nice flamingo I was gifted a little while ago.


The fly is tied on a 2/0 Mustad 3366, using Pearsall's Gossamer silk, cobblers wax and my hands. No vise no bobbin. I'll let the pictures be the words today.














Thanks for checking in.
