My kids 5th grade science teacher loves woven bodied flies. Google George Grant. He died not that long ago but is considered the father of woven bodied flies. The teacher knew him when he lived in MT and talk about him all the time. I think they are neat but won;t spend the time. Nice job though.

The only weave I know, this guy sits on my desk at work because it was the first one I did in a class, and I like it.

He's got a 4/0 Royal Wulff for a pal, too. I should try fishing that someday, trout would think they've died and gone to mayfly heaven.

Its a bad picture because, well, I'm sitting at work.

In a serious question though, do you guys ever tie stoneflies on scud hooks? This would make sense to me given the stoneflies body curling into a ball to get them back down to the stream bottom, where they can cling and use their gills? Trout are eating loose stoneflies that would be inclined to be in this balled up position as they float down stream seeking to get back to the bottom. Or do we assume that trout are feeding on stoneflies in their preferred habitat of fast moving highly oxygenated water, thus they don't get a close enough look? If that's the case, then why the hell am I sitting at my vise trying to figure out this weaving thing?
