White T-Base Feathers
Item # EW126
$2.50


The Nov-Dec 03 issue of FLY ROD & REEL MAGAZINE has an article by A.K. Best regarding using our White T-Base Feathers as the winging material for the wings on Royal Wulffs, rather than hair wings, like calf tail. It's an easy wing to tie, and I think it's the most beautiful wing for the Royal Wulff in sizes 12 thru 16. Almost looks hair like, because it's the nature of the feather-fibers on a T-Base Feather. You have to know how to do this, so get this issue of that magazine OR if you miss it, ask for Ed. Another thing, I have a number of Lee Wulff flys. He was friend and customer for many years. Lee never used a hair stacker for the hair wings on his Wulff patterns. The hair wings are not only un-even, but also sparse. More sparse then any I've ever seen tied, other then by Lee. Another thing, the bright-white MARABOU at the base of a T-Base feather is perfect for small white marabou streamers or jigs. We package T-Base in $2.50 bulk paks, or a BIG 1-ounce(small pillow) bulk-pak for $8 (see ITEM EW125 for 1 ounce pak).

F-C Surf Dart Pattern Sheet
Item # EW186
$1.50


The F-C SURF DART Baitfish Pattern cast into a wind like a bullet. Great sand eel pattern for stripers, bluefish and albies anywhere these fish are found, to include bonito along the Florida Gulf Coast. You can walk a beach and shoot this pattern out there 70-feet and further into a wind. Where I'm going with this is that the revised 1985 Pattern-sheet(I first wrote the pattern-sheet in the 1970's) with step by step tying photo's is still available($1.50). But more important, we again have the F-C Clear Wide Clear Lace($1.50 pak) to tie the pattern. Easy to tie, easy to cast and designed to imitate small baitfish everywhere. As soon as it hits the water, start stripping it back, and it will ride just under the surface. Or, let it sink to a desired depth before stripping it back.

F-C Empty Soft Spools
Item # EW187
$0.50


These are the empty spools that our F-C FLUOROCARBON TIPPET-MATERIAL is spooled on. These soft-spools, as you know, easily open up to be re-used for other materials than tippet. We've had many requests to buy the spools empty so that you can spool chenille, wires, tinsels and other like materials on them. When you stop pulling tying material or tippet material off the spool, it stops, so there is no waste. There is never any F-C Tippet-Material waste with our spools, as you know. The empty spools are .50 ea

Pattern Sheet - F-C City Rat
Item # EW193
$1.50


The F-C CITY RAT trout fly is part nymph, and part not. It can be fished dead-drift deeeep as a great nymph pattern, and by using the Jim Liesenring-Lift at the end of the drift, expect this trout fly pattern to be very productive. Others have skipped the pattern with the rod tip as you do when fishing a streamer or F-C Crackleback, and found this to be productive. Allow the fly to get deep in any depth of water, meaning just off the bottom. The key material for tying this fly is the philo-plume(after-shaft) marabou like feather found under most feathers on a ringneck pheasant skin. Here we offer a pattern-Sheet to include THE HISTORY AND ILLUSTRATED EASY TYING INSTRUCTIONS. > $1.50 (This pattern will be one of your favorite go-deeep trout fly patterns

Drake Mallard (Silver Belly)
Item # EW210
$1.50


Drake Mallard...for tying fan-wing dry fly wings. And if you want to see exactly how to tie a fan-wing in, see it done on page-50 of the March issue of FLY ROD & REEL MAGAZINE, or ask for a pat-sheet from Ed when you order these mallard belly feathers. Beautiful dry fly wings, and a white-wing Adams is easy to see on the water. Plus these are used for the wing case on Zug Bugs, cheeks on streamers and more. Tough feather to come by as they must be hand plucked. And you know who the head plucker is around here. Nice pak $1.50

Wild Turkey Pointer Wing Quills
Item # EW211
$1.50


Wild turkey POINTER Wing Quills (I only have these during the spring turkey season). These quills are located on the extreme outside, of a wild turkey wing. They are in demand by bow hunters to be used for fletching arrows. HOWEVER, for fly tiers, the outside of this quill is where turkey biots come from for wrapping a number of fly body patterns. These pointer-quill biots are much longer than goose biots and are barred black and white. WHAT MOST FLY TYERS DON'T KNOW is that the feather-fibers on the feather-side of the quill are-no like any other feather-fiber on a regular turkey wing quill. These feather-fibers on turkey pointer-quills are like biots, and each feather-fiber is straight and the same size for its full-length, unlike a biot. A customer uses nothing else but one of these feather-fibers for the bodies on his Trico patterns. A well known tier uses these feather fibers as the secret body on his small Adams patterns. He quickly tapers the under-body with thread-wraps before wrapping the feather-fiber over them. These little Adams are just beautiful. I won't tie them that small, and when I asked him for one, he said no. I do tie a quick little Dry Woolly pattern like this. On a size-14/16 hook, tie in a grizzly hackle at the end of the hook-shank dull-side facing you by its butt-end. Tie in a feather-fiber from the feather-side of this quill. Wrap the thread up to just behind the hook eye. Wrap the turkey fiber up to the waiting thread and tie in. Cut away waste. Palmar-Wrap the hackle in wide even wraps up the hook shank to the waiting thread and tie in. Cut away waste and finish fly head. This is a Griffth's Gnat with a different body look, you'll see. The last time I offered these quills, they sold out, with many re-orders. I could not back-order a pointer-quill, so please reorder here(you can add it to your regular catalog order). And we often have to cut these long pointer-quills in half for shipping. This in no way harms the tying material. A lot of special tying material here, again off both sides of the quill > Only $1.50 ea.
