Kisatchie Fly Fishers / May 18 fly tying
« Last post by Catch Cormier on May 18, 2015, 06:35:28 AM »
Our next fly tying session will be Monday, May 18, at the Rapides Westside Libary in Alexandria. Time is 6:30pm.

For this session, Gene Taylor will demonstrate a couple of his favorite flies. Bring your tools if you have some, if not, the club has a few sets for use during these sessions. Materials will be provided.

Also, Roger Breedlove will be on hand to answer a few questions about the upcoming rod building session on June 20.

Here in ND, we went from 70s & 80s in April, which is really unusual especially given how many days of those temps we had, to a winter storm in mid-May.  It has been raining for days, which is good as it was drier than a popcorn fart, but for the next couple nights were will be in the 20s and are supposed to get an inch or so of snow.  Northern parts of the state are forecast for 3-6 inches.  Winds are howling right now and will be around 40 mph later this evening.

Won't be any fishing for awhile.   :-[

Great idea to use colored wire.  I am going to MN in June on a bluegill excursion.  I'll have to tie up a bunch of these.

Panfish Wet Fly : Wire-Bodied Timberwolf



Dan Gapen's original Weighted Timberwolf Westerm Trout Fly is one of the absolute BEST Wet Flies
that you can use to catch BIG BLUEGILL on. My problem has always been that the floss body on
the original fly tends to unravel after catching a few fish. I tried some thread-bodied flies to toughen
the bodies up, then hit upon this idea of using Colored Wire for the bodies to kill two birds with one
stone -  colored wire for both the body and the weight for the fly. This is one tough fly if you like pulling
BIG BLUEGILLs out of your favorite fihing hole!

What part of the river are you fishing? I fished the section just at the Alabama/Tennessee state line down to the Guntersville dam when I lived there a few years ago. Caught a lot of good fish up there.

Looks like you know how to catch fish bud. May have to tie some of those flies up.

Thanks, it's a great looking fly.  I'll have to give the OnlyFly a try.

Gene Bethea, who lives in Murchison, Texas (just east of Athens) is very experienced in rod repair.  Send me a PM if you want his phone number.

Rex I tie them with bead heads to hold the materials on the hook.
Also under the peacock you can put some wire on the hook.  Have them tied both ways.
