It was a tough sports weekend for me outside of my Wings with a solid performance, so that left some extra time to tie. One bright spot was this shot of Kelly Neuman out on the White. This fish made a meal of a custom glow in the dark Double Deceiver...and it is not the first to do so. Something about that fly on an overcast day drives fish nuts.
After doing a presentation last weekend at the BUFF show in Cincinnati on winged wet flies I have the bug to tie some more up. Lucky for me I had an order for some Parmachene Belles as well so I was able to get my fix and fill the order at the same time. For married winged flies I stage them by assembling all the tails and wings first.
Then I go baack and tie all the flies. This particular group was half a dozen each of the Parmachene Belles in sizes 10 and 12. It was fun to tie some more of these up and I am looking forward to knocking out more over the next few months as I get prepared for the show in Sweden where I will be tying these American classics.
As for the rest of the flies...it was a hodge podge of different streamer patterns. Based on the orders I have stacked up in front of me I will be doing more of the same over the next week!
