    Just as a reminder, this is up and running and waiting for your fly patterns.

    Hmmm. This might be one of the only additions. We just might find this little guy in the database. How did you tie it up? Please give a detailed description.

    Can I upload videos? I pressed upload the other day and came back an hour later and it didn't upload.

    WELL, Finding a housefly this time of year was the tricky part. Without going into TOO much detail, cluster flies will often appear on relatively warm winter days. They get fooled into thinking Spring has arrived and come out lookin' for love. This poor fella' awoke from his long winter slumber to find ME and NOT the object of his desire.

    Other challenges arise once captured (they are a bit dopey when they first emerge making them slower, and thus, easier to catch) (Mr Miyagi, take note).

    But, I start with about a six inch piece of three ply rose-grey alpaca yarn, spun from the blanket area of a full peruvian alpaca. I separate the plys and use the most flexible of the three. CAREFULLY, I tie ONE overhand knot, creating a loop. I then cajole the now less than dopey fly into crawling through the loop. THEN, I gently pull the ends of the yarn taut(one end is pinned between my palm and thumb of my left hand, while the other end is pulled with my right index finger and thumb). This then restricts the fly from moving THROUGH the loop. VOILA!

    I just hope that this description helps anyone wishing to tie up a cluster fly(although this technique will work with just about any insect or arachnid one wishes to restrict the movements of). If anyone has ANY questions, feel free to ask.

    Well, hooks are optional. My personal choice is posted below.

    Re: Fly tying database

    Thanks FF,

    Did you use any thread and/or glue to hold the fly to the hook?

    Sorry for all the questions,
    Curiousdog

    GOSH, I'm so glad you brought that up...

    I was remiss in not mentioning that I start with a six inch piece of alpaca yarn so that I have enough to TIE the fly to the hook if I so choose.

    THANKS Cdog!
