> > Adult Early Black Stone

WolveJanuary 10th, 2008, 5:32 am
Posts: 1I am trying to tie a female adult early black stone. I want a fly that will look like it is laying eggs at or in the surface of the water. The pattern I am working on calls for wood duck underwing with dark grey duck overwing flaired. I am not sure how to flair the duck wings on this fly. I tied one with standard duck quill wings on the side but somehow it doesn't look right. I think the pattern means strands of a duck feather but I am not sure. Can anyone help me out?

Perhaps if you could name the exact nomenclature of the fly pattern, more concise advice could be given...

In general, though, most reciepes will specify quill barbs vs. quill segments. In tying a flared (delta) wing each wing is tied on seperately at the desired angle, then one or two half figure 8 wraps to make final adjustments.

Eventually, all things merge into one...and a river runs through it.
