Fly Tying: Burnt Wings pt. 2

23 Dec

So I’m continuing with my experimentation with these wing burners. I found some nice light dun hen saddle I had laying around. These stems seem to be more delicate and supple so it should be less cause for any kind of twisting issues. The color seems to be spot on as well for either sulphur or BWO.
PhotobucketThese wings ended up a little further back than I would have liked. Here’s a top viewPhotobucket Then we have the blue wing olive version in a size 20. Natural Tan CDC was used for the sulphur and Natural brown for the blue wing olive. Overall same technique used as previously posted. Photobucket I’m happier with the placing of the wings on the blue wing. These things are so delicate to tie in sometimes your just happy they’re on the hook at all.

Merry Christmas & Happy Tying
