Last week, Koen asked me to tie some articulated flies for his upcoming fishing trip to Denmark, and he gave me a couple of packages of these UV EP brushes to do so.
He also asked me to leave them white and leave the last eye of the tail on, so he could, if necessary, add a split ring with a stinger hook.
I tied them on a setup like this.
So here they are, four albinos. They’re only 16cm long so I don’t think a stinger will be necessary, but it’s still possible.
Now, these ready made brushes are easy to work with, but if you make them yourself, it works just as fine. This is a brush with EP I made myself.
And it doesn’t always have to be EP either. I made a couple of these with Craft Fur and some Polar Flash mixed into it.
And I tied them on a setup like this. I used the Craft Fur brushes for the tail and body and the EP brush for the head.
And there you have another albino. I’m looking forward to seeing this one in action…
…and I promise to put a bit more colour in the next flies I post…
