Tying Classic Flies - Streamers, Atlantic Salmon, MOM, etc...
« on: December 23, 2014, 07:52:56 AM »

Anyone have a link, or a source where someone might have listed out the dressings for these fly patterns?

I've seen the plates (have some myself), but was hoping to find the actual listed dressings, instead of just guessing from the plates. 

Thanks!

Mary Orvis Marbury patterns are fairly simple to come by anyone that you are looking in particular? That lady had a ton of them.

Also I'm assuming you mean these plates? I think there is a guy on thebasspond, who posted these a while ago, not sure if he ever signed up here.  I don't have a lot of information on it other than

The listing of each of the flies name can help in the process. For example,

"The Seth Green"

There is a nice write up on it.

Also MOM's book Favorite Flies and Their Histories has several of these patterns listed in it. I'll look for my copy when I get home. I know I got it on Amazon for like 1.00 from a used book store.

Yes, Alec has been a devoted tier and user of these flies for years. He has the referenced book and is knowledgeable about the patterns. Some of the book maybe be accessible online through Google books if you do a search.

A couple years ago we had a Bass Pond outing at the Burrage Pond Wildlife refuge exclusively to fish these types of flies. Thanks to Alec and Gillbuster who supplied us with the ammo. It was a fantastic time using those old vintage patterns!

I was just emailing back and forth with the folks that own camp/cottages we stay at each summer up in Maine, and during the conversation they were asking if I was still fly fishing etc...and we got on the topic of Rangeley, and brook trout, and streamers, etc...and he mentioned the old bass flies, which peaked my interest,more like tripped one of my remaining brain cells into remembering something I wanted to do, in tying some for our trip this summer.

Thought it'd be kind of fun to fish some old school stuff up there...and I knew someone here had fished with them, or did an outing with them.  Thanks for all the information.  I'll be sure to post up my work...I have a feeling thought I won't be able to stick to the recipe, but more the concept/style, and tie with what I have on hand.

I have a bunch of smaller bass bug hooks, while modern, seem to fit this style just perfectly as they have a longer shank than most commonly found bass bug hooks.

I can't tell, but is the shoulder married to the wing?

no, i think its put on as a wing, over the larger feather.  I think if you look at the top you can see the concave underside where the two halves of the wing meet.

They look cool in the vise, but I can't imagine they last more than about two seconds like that wet :lol

you should watch McPhail put on a tinsel body, the guy can do the touching turns thing better than I have ever seen on any video on youtube. Snug, perfect, it pisses me off to no end. :lol
