Our March Lying & Tying meeting will be in room 205 of the WWCC Green River campus on Tuesday, March 18th at 6:30 PM.
NOTE THE DAY & DATE CHANGE FOR THIS MONTH DUE TO A SCHEDULING CONFLICT
This month we will be tying Dave’s Hopper.
Here is what you will need:
Hook: Terrestrial, 2X long, size 6 or 8 Daiichi 1280, Mustad 94831 or Tiemco 5212
Thread: 6/0 tan or brown, Big Fly fiber or GSP thread
Tail: Red hackle or yarn
Rib: Brown hackle trimmed short
Body: Yellow yarn
Underwing: Deer hair
Overwing: Mottled turkey quill coated with fixative
Legs: Trimmed & knotted hackle stems or pheasant barbs from a pheasant tail feather
Collar/Head: Deer hair spun & trimmed
You will need to spray the turkey feather with the fixative and let it dry a couple days before the meeting.
The deer hair should be suitable for spinning.
You will also need a medium hair stacker, serrated scissors to trim the deer hair, a hair packer, a small fine tooth comb, double edged razor blades and super glue.
The pheasant tail feathers you need are the same as used for tying a pheasant tail nymph.
To tie the knots in the pheasant for the legs, you will need a Rainey’s leg tool or the electrical clips sometimes used for hackle pliers (they come in red or black and have a retractable hook on the end). A pair of hemostats could also be used.
There is no one currently attending this event.
