Beadhead2

I was looking at the fly you tied for the swap last night. How the heck do you weave the body? Can your share the technique ?

I have a friend who does this and I never bothered to have him show me but THIS looks like a simple method. Not sure if its the same as we received though.

Yes that is the way it is done ,only I used embroidery thread instead.
You can use a lot of different materials

Looking at some of the closeup shots that Ted Faucegli has in his book mayflies you would think a woven body would do a great job mimicking the abdomen of many duns. Of course the materials often used for nymphs would tend to be either heavy of hold too much water for a dry fly. But with the right material? Might be an interesting project.

Don't get his head swelled up until after he teaches me how to tie mayfly wings. I owe both you guys a beer tonight.

How long does it take you to tie this woven fly? I love the looks of it but am not sure if I have the time to tie something so detailed. The swap flies are awesome, cannot wait to fish them if I can ever get out to the stream anytime soon.

It doesn't take very long at all once you get the weaving technique down, which isn't that hard either. I was really suprised when I first tried it as to how relatively simple it was, but they look for cool. Just look at some examples online or if you have a book that shows weaving techniques and just follow the steps.

Lou is really good with weaving. You should see some of the early pot holders he's done while at the home. I think tonight is his happy night, they serve ice cream.
