Wet n’ windy… fuzzie notion time… by Pete Gray

Slightly handicapped, moderately decorated USAF veteran aviator with issues… Born way back in the 1900s and raised on Long Island, NY, USA… ’spent formative years life guarding town ocean beaches and spin fishing on the newly emerging rock jetties of Atlantic Beach and Point Lookout for Stripers and Yellow Eyed Fly Shredders

Driven into my bunker by a rather surly weather situation…a fine opportunity to spill forth another fuzzie notion…

Bill’s Bodi Braid foundation…
F70A1847

Several coq du leon feathers welded in place with Bug-Bond Original formula light cured acrylic…I’ve tried ’em all and have embraced Bug-Bond… the pro-tips make a big difference for precision targeting…

F70A1849

Whiting fish fur [‘could just as well be marabou], UV flash, some carnivorous arctic goat [fox will do nicely] and a pink buck tail throat…

F70A1856

3-D eyes and a CDL feather welded in the horizontal to start some flat wing shoulders…

F70A1859

Krystal Flash and a medium pardo CDL complete the flat wing insinuendo…and there ya’ have it…

F70A1864

It’s my take on what a hungry Stripped predator dreams about…[and the vise ain’t too shabby either]…That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it…!!!

I am planning on being at the Fly Tying Symposium  in November, Somerset NJ in the company of Faruk Ekich [Ultimate Bobbin] and, all the way from Durban, South Africa, Jay Smit [Jvice]…

I hope to be welding up a storm and look forward to meeting new friends and answering any “phly welding” questions…
