Cell phone, on silent with the contrast way down....although I'm sure Davies calming voice could make a baby fall asleep.

Does anyone have any sort of video of a classic salmon fly underwater.... I'm just curious to see if anyone has ever actually taken a jock scott or something like that and swung that sucker for salmon.

Adrian Cortes...if you google him up.  Amazing ties, and he swings all the classics still.

That favorite flies site is Alecs website. He usually ties at the Bears Den show in February too.

This is a link to the Bass Pond outing page

And the follow up report from the outing

Tying Atlantic Salmon Flies - You have to start somewhere
« Reply #25 on: January 20, 2015, 12:53:57 PM »

So here is my first "real" attempt...I should already just give up :lol 

It went so badly I don't even know where to begin.  I did not follow a pattern, I just wanted to incorpate some elements that I like.  The wing was so bad, I brushed it out to a mixed wing.  WAY TOO BIG of a hook...I need like 7000 pound goose to get feather slips long enough to reach the tail.  Too many voids in the rear...not to mention the wing.  But hey the head came out alright :lol  I could preen the thing a little more to add some life to it. 

It was very hard with that hook to get it to balance out.  Its just so big.

Tip:  fine silver twist
Tag: red floss
Tail:  GP crest
Butt: black ostrich herl
Body: 1/3 yellow floss, 2/3 blue floss
Rib: Silver Oval tinsel over yellow, flat embossed and oval tinsel over blue
Hackle:  Brick red cock hackle from the third turn of tinsel
Throat: natural guinea feather
Underwing:  lady amherst tippet feathers back to back
Wing:  slips of red, blue, and yellow goose, mottled peacock, GP tail feather, and mallard over, with a GP crest for a topping
Cheeks:  Jungle Cock

Kind of keeping this as a record for myself...

The head, which was the best part of this fly, I was able to shape by packing in little dabs of white cobblers wax.  I gave it light coat of sallys, then two coats of black nail polish (essentially lacquer), and three final coats of sallys.  Looks frigging awesome (picture above is with just the light first coat).

On to something a bit smaller...i'd say the hook is like a classic size 5-7, so pretty small.

Working on mounting a wing a little better...and in a "built" wing style, where each component is mounted on top of the previous.

Should be a neat little pattern.
