Look What I Found At Bears Den
Yesterday I went and did a little hunting, not with a gun but with my eyes. The field was "Bears Den" an excellent fly shop located in Taunton Mass. What a shop if you can't find it here it probably does not exist. Wandering about I found some tying treasures, one I'll share with you the others shall remain secret.
I spotted this beautiful hen pheasant skin, the feathers were pristine. Beautifully marked and the sizes were just perfect for soft-hackles, spiders and flymphs. I love shopping like this for you can see for yourself what your buying. Online and catalogs don't really show you the quality of what your purchasing. Moving along through the shop I picked up a few more items that I would never have purchased but seeing them in front of me I said "that will work".... So below are a couple of flies that I tied using the materials I purchased at Bears Den.
Bead-head #1...pretty simple eh! But movement where it counts.
Bead-head #2, this one uses a feather tied from the above hen pheasant. It just has that appeal of a drab colored insect.
If your in the area stop by, if not they also do a great mail order business and will satisfy your needs.
