THE TYING BENCH

10 a.m. on Zoom:

Tying 
the
HUDSON STREAMER

"Flank wing" streamers -- that is, minnow imitations tied with a pair of flat feathers oriented vertically to form the outline of the fly -- can be extremely effective. They offer great flexibility to the tyer, too, for by choosing different types of feathers you can create flies with a wide range of looks.

The Hudson Streamer (that's what they are calling it!) is a flank-wing streamer that I developed some years ago. It's proven to be a great minnow imitation for trout from the southern Appalachians to New England and from Washington state to Alaska. And it turns out to be a great bass fly too.

Visit our special "The Tying Bench" page for more info and a complete materials list!
You can also purchase a Tie It & Try It kit for the Hudson Streamer from our webstore!

LOOKING AHEAD:

Special edition of The Tying Bench will focus on making and using your own dubbing!

You asked for it, and here it is: On August 7, The Tying Bench will focus on making and using your own dubbing!


In this special edition of The Tying Bench, you'll learn to make your own dubbing blends -- and then you'll put that dubbing to work creating your own unique Soft Hackle Emerger!


To make dubbing, of course, you'll need some raw materials. Here's a recommended list. The materials you use can vary a lot, as we'll discuss, but the ones that are starred (*) are fairly universal. You'll want to be sure you have those!


EXCIING NEWS! A special Tie It & Try It materials kit is available for this special session of The Tying Bench. This kit includes the materials you'll need to create your own custom dubbing, plus the hooks, ribbing wire and soft-hackle feathers that you'll need to tie a fly using that dubbing! This kit is available from our webstore and also, in the north Atlanta area, from Alpharetta Outfitters.

============

Please note that you'll now find summary instructions on the Tying Bench page of this website! These are designed for you to reference during our Saturday morning tying get-togethers. You may find it helpful to print them out and have them handy as you tie!
