BWO

Post by newriverspey » Mon Apr 13, 2020 12:18 pm

Dear all,

I hope everyone is keeping safe during these challenging times. It's been a while since I last posted but this morning I tied a few #18 BWO soft hackles in hopes of fishing tomorrow. So far, fishing is not completely shut down in my area. Sorry for the picture quality but I just used my iPhone.

Stay safe,
Otto

my photos are iPhone challenged as well, so glad to see someone else post their flies despite the handicap
These are very tasty morsels.

I took some more pictures today with better lighting and a few different backgrounds. Overall, fishing was pretty good.

I would never be able to tie something like that in those sizes. No matter what size, I would be challenged. It must be either the seal or the camera. I really like the sweeping lines in the fly. What hook did you use?

daringduffer,

That fly is tied on a Mustad R50U-94842 and I personally like a hook with an upturned eye. I mainly fish tailwaters and need to tie on small hooks.

Thanks,
Otto

What a superb pattern. The proportions are so nicely done.

Question - Do you use magnifying glasses? I have become completely dependent on magnification while tying.

What hackle did you use? The recipe would be awesome. I do like those Mustad upturned eye hooks.
