What Are You Tying 2018 Edition

Recommended Posts

My first attempt at a Zoo Cougar.  I passionately hate working with deer hair.

Looks fine! Did you watch galloups videos on them? He says the design calls for a sparsely spun head.  Although, I think the point of that style of head lends itself to articulated flies better as it slows the head down after the strip, while the tail continues on, creating a swimming motion.

Thanks fellas. Yes, I did this from the Galloup tutorial.  I think he had more on the collar and on the head than I've got here.  Of course, no matter what he does with deer hair looks amazing.  I struggle to get the collar to stay on top, and just can't get that short cut before tie-in thing that he does.

Make a solid thread base at the tie in point and hold it tight while you’re putting in your wraps...combined with some heavier thread so you can really crank on it and it shouldn’t roll.

That being said, I don’t see a problem with the collar you have. If you don’t want it on the bottom, you can just trim it.

Looks pretty good. Not bad for a first attempt.

Experimental fly using old fly line as abdomen. Should float nice

Is that the same abdomen as Forget-Me-Not Midge?  Just different flyline.
