Dewdrop

Dewdrop 4/0 - tied and photographed by Eunan Hendron
Well, that one took a while. I started the Dewdrop about a month ago and surprisingly got the body finished relatively easily consider its complexity. After that the hook sat on my bench for about a month before I plucked up the courage to tackle the wing.

Sunday night I slotted into the vise again, and this is what it came out like after the roof, topping and horns were finished last night. The hook is a Noble HB from Ronn Lucas.

My original plan to complete 52 salmon flies fell by the way side a long time ago unfortunately. I just didnt have enough time this year to commit to one fly per week. However, I'm going to keep the salmon fly tab alive with links back to the original posts for the flies featured on that tab.

Finally, anothe reminder that this weeked I'm going to be tying flies at the Art of the Angler Show in Danbury, CT, so if you're in the area and want to see this and other flies I've tied this year, then swing by and say hello!

Marbury Bass Flies - wood duck wing edition!

Over the past few years I've found and bookmarked quite a number of different fly tying/fly fishing sites on the interwebs, and one that I consistently return to for inspiration is by Mike Boyer which can be found HERE

Winter tying shows


Just a note to let everyone know I'm scheduled to tie at two upcoming shows this winter, and one in Spring. You can expect to see many of the flies I've recently featured on the blog (including this brute above)  as well as some that are due to come be posted here soon...
