Also need to ask, would jelly rope make this fly float higher in column, knowing it's hollow? I understand bead helps get it down, but I'm concerned it won't get to strike zone!
Tks

Leteras... Great looking flies

Can you please post up a step by step on tying them flies?
Or even just the recipes would be very helpful for people who tie.

I am glad that you have seen the light and changed your position on taking the material way down past the bend of the hook. It should be noted that I was right on a few other matters this weekend. I am running goot.


Despite your attempt to hate on me to no end now, I noticed the exact same thing about the bend of the hook.


When I'm right, I'm right.

Just use clear jelly rope and color the strap ontop the back with a sharpy. Thats what i would do.

What kind of hooks are those in them fly pics?
I need a tetanus vaccination after looking at them.

What type of coating is that?

I use tiemco 2457's for the flies in size #12 or #14 The diameter of jelly rope is your preference. The smaller you go the smaller the ribbed effect. I like to use something a littler larger for these. Remeber jelly rope stretches so you can taper the body easily. More tension at the bend less tension as you near the bead.

The hooks you tied these on are not tiemco. They look more like allen hooks. The finish is all wrong, and the barbs are inconstant and the bend of the hook is not a tiemco bend. Allen fly hook all the way.

Yeah. I didn't think those hooks were quality TMC hooks in them pics myself.

Wish he would tell us exactly what brand they are because the quality control looks like $0.1 hooks.

You guys are really rough on the new guys. This is why I have only lurked, I am afraid to post anything. JohhnyUtah, your ties are superb, but I think you need to lay off of Leteras. He is here to help everybody.

Johnny Utah I would put those hooks up against anything you have. They will not break and beat anything you have hands down. Those are manufactured by tiemco they come from the same plant in japan.

I was gonna bring my nunchucks, but I didn't think she'd know what they were.

Childish again, My dad can kick your dads butt etc... Your not using a name brand tiemco 2457 is my point. Your using tiemco seconds. Ones that tiemco quality control discarded because they did not meet the tiemco quality standard. While you still have tiemco steel, the hooks are still flawed.

Will they still work fine? Of coarse. Would i trust the fish of life time on one....hell no!

Plus dont you know daiichi is the king of chrome.
