    Old Style Grizzly King

    Please allow to to introduce a very good wet fly for Brookies and bows in the Spring called the Grizzly King. I use to tye this fly with paired mallard Flank (lefts and rights). This was pretty for pictures and not practical for fishing. So over time I researched and seen that tyers across the pond used a tri-fold or folded technique. I tried this and did not like the looks. So one day I just took a larger section off a piece of mallard flank and slowly folded & folded & folded /rolled until I came up with this wing. I haved found the folded roll wing to look nice but serve the purpose of a wing that would hold up under fishing conditions. So the fly below is called the Grizzly King that has a Folded rolled wing.

    GB, good job! Your tying went from yeah okay to not so bad. If you keep practicing I feel you will hit that perfect look. I truly think your tying has improved. I will work with you on your heads of the flies if your tying at Shannons this month. Simple easy lesson and you will be good to go.

    Sincerely
    Andy Brasko

    The Trick Or Treat. A wet fly that is truly my own creation that caught a bunch of Brown Trout this past November. Looks great but catches fish too. You will be more than satified my friend.

    GB, why would you pollute this thread with pics of your shit? Your flies look like strike indicators with a hook. Nice fly Andy.

    Hell no and it aint over now.......

    I guess you have a problem paying attention to N.E.F.F.

    There is one thing that where the members we all fall in line, and that is when someone posts a fly, we applaud for a simple reason.

    For the first time tyer who dares to post, will receive encouragement.

    To do anything less...

    Well, I'll leave it at that.

    WOW, somebody is still pms'ing over the Superbowl. What will you do when the Sox choke again? To dignify your inane response, those aren't GB's first flies, and spare me the proper NEFF protocol, relax it will be OK. and out of your over 9,000 posts, and only 6 groans given, mine is so honored to be one of the 6? cool!!!

    Hell no and it aint over now.......
