After reworking a hook of 10/0 + 3/4” I struggled to come up with what to tie on it. I found this pattern and figured it was right for this size hook.

Regards,

Marty

Hi All:
I have been trying to get a few different hooks, just to learn about them and their profiles.  While pictures help, there is nothing like having one in hand.  This fly was tied on one of Ronn's, Harrison and Bartleet 6/0 XL hooks.  I thought with all of the divided body work it would be a good fit.  I think I tend to like the sleek shape the longer shank hooks lend to the fly, but we'll see... I suppose they all have their place.  Please, keep the comments coming!
Best,
Dave

  Cross stitch sampler fly

Back in colonial times young ladies would compose an example of their sewing skills to showcase what they could bring to a marriage,  Work displaying numbers, letters, human figures  and pastoral scenes were common and expected !  My fly tying history took a similar route and I ended up making mistakes in a few areas,,,I got too impatient and I spent too much money ( including the great materials I ruined).  Instead I chose to throw myself 'whole hog' into tying full dressers like the Jock Scott before I was capable of tying the fly below.  It is simple but challenging, inexpensive yet elegant, old and new.

Ringneck pheasant feathers ( the ones with blue-green iridescence ) play a big part in the tail, veilings, and short collar.  The dressing falls short of being a full sampler but it probably would be a good 'next to the last step' before challenging the big boys

I hope you all are doing well.

Things are still more hectic than I can manage and I haven't been in front of a vise in a couple months.

Just want to pop in and let you all know I'm not vanishing and I'm watching new additions.

To cut down on SPAM I'm personally filtering all new additions until I can lock it down but not so much that it's a bad experience for you all.  If you hear of anyone having trouble creating an account, let me know please.

Take care,

Jon

Have not posted here in a little while. Just been lurking in the shadows. Tied this per Fisher’s pattern on a Klug 3/0. Didn’t turn out too bad. Body hackle is a tad long but I like it.

Regards,

Marty

When I think of low water classic designs, 8/0 stout, long shanked hooks with impossibly sparse dressings comes to mind.  This is a smaller contemporary version of the same.  The horns are deal makers to me, the tip is lacquered red thread, blue is important, and so is the tipped dyed hackle I got from John McLain.  A thumbnail nudge on my 3rd rib wouldn't hurt.  I've always liked this fly and I had a spot on a river in mind when I tied it but we never made the trip.  Something different......
