PostPosted: Tue May 08, 2007 8:11 pm    Post subject: Red Hook Micro Tubing Larva Reply with quote

I'll be first to post for the Red Hook Micro Tubing Larva

Hook: Daiichi 1273 (red) size 22 & 20
Thread: Red, (I used Benecchi 12/0 but 70 UTC or similar is fine)
Body: Olive Micro Tubing

1. Tie in the tubing behind the eye of the hook, making sure to secure the tubing with tight wraps. Put in a couple of half hitch knots and let the thread hang at the eye.
2. Pull on the tubing so it stretches slightly and wrap to the back of the hook. With the tubing still stretched start to wrap back toward the eye. As you work back up lessen the stretch a bit so as to impart a taper toward the head. Work slowly to lay on the tubing with no gaps between wraps.
3. Tie off the tubing and form the head and your done. It is that easy.

White translucent red thread midge

TMC 2488 size 22
Red thread 6/0
Polyethylene spun bonded strip*
Black thread 8/0

Pinch the barb of the hook
Secure in vise
Tie on red thread and wrap back to just past the barb
Tie in a length of 3/32 wide, light weight, PE spun bonded fabric
Wrap red thread to the front of the hook just shy of the eye
Wrap the PE forward (about three turns)
Tie off with red thread
Clip off PE tag (carefully heat if necessary to remove excess fibers near eye)
Whip finish the red thread
Tie in black thread over red at the eye
Wrap a head in black thread
Whip finish and clip the black thread
The midge will appear white until one applies head cement to
the body and head


* First tried white dental floss. It worked but the PE is easier.

Used this in late April in Texas hole with a great deal of success.

PostPosted: Tue May 15, 2007 7:48 pm    Post subject: Bead Bubble Midge Reply with quote

Size 24 Bead Bubble Midge with gray body, black ice dub thorax, and silver bead bubble on top.

Tying instructions follow:

Hook: Daiichi 1130 size 22-26 (or similar scud hook)
Thread: Gray 3/0 Uni-Thread
Tail: None (optional brown hackle fibers)
Body: GrayThread
Rib: Spun thread rib
Thorax: Black Ice Dubbing
Bubble: Clear/Silver Micro Bead
Instructions:

Place the hook in the vise.
Take bead and thread it on to tying thread.
Secure thread near the middle of the hook and let bead fall to tip of bobbin.
Wrap the thread forward and then back to bend.
Spin thread tight and wrap forward to create a ribbed effect.
Stop 3/4 of the way to eye and pull up thread to the top of the hook.
Pinch the bead and take a loose wrap or two around the hook then pull tight to keep the bead on top.
Dub the thread and build up the thorax around the bead bubble.
Whip finish and cement.
Catch large fish!

This fly has been especially effective for me in the upper flats and in deeper runs and eddies. Best body colors are gray, cream, and brown.

Enjoy!

I examine your post, but i think that there should be more talk about the threat that have initial started, so that the reasonable amount of data'll be available for decision, However, Nice post to talk about, well i like this. Regards
