"Sundog"

With all the cold snowy weather as of late one can get some relief by tying flies. I have been tying featherwing streamers for the last several days and would like to share one with you. I got the inspiration for the streamer from a photo I saw while viewing Run-a-Round Ranch blog. Theresa had several photos of a "sundog" posted. From that photo I selected some materials that would give the impression of a "sundog". I hope you enjoy.

  2. I have already seen Theresa's 'sun dog' pictures, though before seeing them I had never heard the term, and they are wonderful. But this fly Brk is stunning too, I hope the trout that it hooks is worthy of it my man.

      When viewed by hunters they are a sign of of impending success.
      I don't think it will be fished.

      The first I heard of them was in the movie "Deer Hunter". Robert De Niro made mention of them.

  9. Very nice! It would be a shame to throw this one in the water and let some fish chew it up... :)

      I don't think that will happen....it might just go into a frame.

  10. How cool for one blogger to inspire another. This is a beautifully done fly; I'm sure the fish will find it irresistible also!
