Purple Peril

Posted by Mark Thursday, May 27, 2010

Another great North Umpqua fly that I use often. It's hard to beat these videos from the Caddis Fly Shop for great instruction which show very clearly how this fly is tied. Barrett adds his own touch but there are obviously many ways to tie this fly. The basic profile/style of fly is the same for traditional summer steelhead flies. Tail,tag,tinsel,body,hackle,wing/over wing,head. A million variation on that theme will keep you at the vise for a lifetime. I find myself always changing the look of my flies a little as new materials,tools,hooks,etc become available. Sometimes you just get bored of the same old flies and want to make up something new.It's fun playing around.
