skiltonian,

Cool fly, thanks for sharing! I like the bent hook, but would it effect the hook setting ablity?

I never thought so, and the other nice thing is... you don't have to carry specific cripple patterns. Just bend the hook of whatever fly you are fishing, if it isn't producing for you but you think you have the right pattern.

I've used poly-pro and Antron in the past. I just got through reading "Hatches II" and they show using hackle and trimming off the top and bottom. I'm gonna give that a try. With my serious down time from lack of work I've finnished that book, "Caddisflies", "Nymphs I and II", and "Matching the Hatch".

deer hair. stand it up ala comparadun, than wrap dubbing figure-8 style to pull the hair down to the sides. better footprint on water than antron or poly.

We are the enlightened few!

I can't remember where I first saw this style of spinner or who originated it.

But I'm surprised how few people tie them this way. I don't think I've ever seen them this way in fly shops or in catalogs.

They are easy to tie.
Use natural materials.
They look NICE. (Synthetic wings don't.)
And they really catch trout.

That looks very much like how I tie the coffin fly spinners. They do work well.

For sulphur spinners I use pale dun.

Wow, I like the bent fly. I tie my spinners with antron.

The link should bring you to a photo with two flies on the left. If it brings you to a photo of the cylinder heads on my scooter, oops.

They are tied with biot body/tail using a light wire scud hook. The two on the right are on a normal dry fly hook with microfibbet tails.

The center fly is one that has caught 10-15 large trout, all over 15". The wings are a mess, but the scud hook is strong and the biot tail is very durable.

The bent fly is attractive because we have all probably made a similar observation. Spinners are laying on the surface in a myriad of positions, not normally in the splayed wing, splayed tail position that looks so beautiful when they are hovering above us.

Think it is ok to just "bend the hook"?

At any rate, I like the antron wings. They get beat up, out of position, but the fly still fishes really well.
