panic, deer hair and seal productions
last minute tying
Here we go - Seals fur and deer hair always does the trick:
I got some seals fur from Danmark. Brilliant stuff. Amazing quality and colors.
Deer hair from a taxidermist or hunter.
It´s often a bit tougher than the stuff one finds in shops.
on with the tying thread
wax the thread
and spin on the seals fur in the same direction you tie - clockwise for a right hand tier tying "away" from the body
rib and secure the dubbing with the thread
stack a clump of deer hair in a hair stacker
tie on the wing
done and Bob´s your uncle
One can actually be quick and last minute. I tend to take my flytying kit along for weekend and longer trips. I seem to always have run out of flies right before. I give them away or am busy tying orders. But I really like these last minute panic flies. They seem to catch best. Must be that fish like fresh flies best. ;-)
