Unfortunately with the number of orders coming in, updating the blog has been difficult. Yet thankfully, I was able to video one of the basic ties that I do, and now I can throw it up on here. This pattern is something I came up with after being inspired by a buddy, Tim-dog, just before I went to the bulkley this past fall. He's another mad tier, and whips up some beauty bugs. What I managed to take from him was the body-less frame. The fact that there is no braid, tinsel, dubbed body allows for extreme translucency and sparseness. When in the water, this fly is a super leechy looking thing, with tons of movement.
Thankfully, the fish up north in the Skeena had no complaints.
