T&L variation
« on: December 07, 10:50PM »
Was goin for a Rob Solo variation from one he posted on FB earlier. Take a few more tries to neat it up a bit and reduce the head a little too. Love the colors in this pattern so will try a few variations for next season on the water.

Hooked my largest salmon on one of its twins...learned that I need to tie it stronger somehow as the salmon destroyed the head grinding it into the bottom

Thanks for those Andrew, like the Spey version , was building one in my head on watch this mornin . If a salmon wants to take mine I hope he tears the crap right out of it. Lol.

Not sure how my muddler heads, bugs, etc will hold up but the old guy (commercial tyer) I bought flies from since I started is all about durability. I see a lot of guys sayin they like to use 8/0 uni for spinning deer and when I told him that he just said here and gave me a spool of Danville Flymaster+. He said for spinning it will hold the hair in place better because it lays flat and you can really torque it up on the bobbin. Also suggested a dab of head cement before adding a clump of hair. Something I found out on my own is that when I finish spinning a clump and run the thread out onto open hook, a few turns just ahead of what I just spun keeps it from spinning free as well. Hope this helps ya like it did me. The ones I finish this way I have tested and they seem as bulletproof as the ones he sold me. If a salmon rips that off there I will have bigger things to worry about.

Slight variation from a Jerome Maloy pattern I liked.
