|Time to get everyone into the tying mood. Here one of my new ones to get everyone started.|
Hook: Daiichi #1550 #12
Thread: Orange Uni-thread
Hackle: Golden Speckled Hen Back-one side stripped off of fibers.
First Ribbing:One strand of Peacock herl
Second Ribbing: Fine copper wire counter-wrapped.
Body:Cinnamon colored bear underfur mixed with a little Hare's Mask of the same color. The body was dubbed on 6/0 Danville Tying thread of Pale orange color Leisenring fashion. When dubbing, the fibers of fur were laid perpendicular to the tying thread.

|Nice! Very pretty fly. |
I'm about to get tying here soon. What psyches me up is bug sampling on my home streams, (breaking some ice to do it), which has me thinking about designs to add to the list. First, I have a new fly rod to finish though.

I'm heading up tomorrow towards Lansing for a FFF Fly Tying Expo to try and kick start my winter tying...I have been really dragging it. Taking my 12 year old nephew Jacob with me to see what he thinks...We are going to walk some trails after to see if we can spot any winter birds of interest.
Also, re-signed up today for a tying group I belong to that ties through the winter months from Jan-Mar...It's run at a middle school by the Challenge Chapt of TU.
I guess you are our cheer leader Mark, now lets get tying boys! It will be Opening Day in a blink.
Nice fly as usual Obi Wan of the Softhackle...:)
