Black/Silver combo tutorial.
In my last post I wrote about a big ma´m who went away with my black/silver combo or what was left of it,it wasn´t much so Now I´m forced to tie more of these.
Think it´s better to tie 4-5 at once.
If ever gonna fish in Lovisa archipelago then this is a almost "must" tie,it has been outstanding this season.
While I started to tie I thought that why not make a tutorial of it.
Have to remind you that this is only MY WAY to do it,you can tie this kind of a fly in hundred different ways.
Equipments you need:
-Fulling mill Scorpio hook size 5/0
-A bit of mono line size 0.70
-Lateral scale in pearl color
-Raccoon in black color
-Bug Bond or Epoxy
-Tying tread Big Fly (I don´t like kevlar in these type of flies because of the dubbing-loops).
1.Tie a loop back on the hook using the mono-line,then tie a mix of flash as a tail(Silver,Holo-silver).Add some Lateral scale.Make a loop of your tying tread.
2.Mix some flash of all colors and do a dubbing brush.(I use to use dubbing wax at this stage)
3.After you tied and locked the brush add some black flash as a back.
4.Now it´s time for the head of the fly and there is some different ways how to do it.
you can tie the whole strip with glue on the shank but I prefer this way:
I`m cutting of the skin using a paper clip.
5.Tie all the flash away from next step using a hair clip.
6.Do a dubbing loop and add the Raccoon from your paper clip and do a brush of it.
Whip-finish the fly.
7.Add the eyes and form a head using Bug Bond or Epoxy.I used Epoxy until Nordic Angler started to import this fantastic product called Bug Bond and I haven´t use Epoxy since then.
8.After this your fly should look something like this,ready to rock.
9.Go and get them
