Was at the edison show on Ftiday and finally pulled together some materials.

First attempt at "The Betsy" (do a search for more details)

I still have to build up the head but its generally finished.

Nice ! That's not an easy one to to do, flash blend , UV2 , EP fibers takes some time to handle I think I have the original recipe from himself .

I plan to do a bunch of these with color variations. The stiff unique hair tail and Farrar blend make up the bulk of it in it's current rendition. I think the originator has a few variant material lists out there nowadays. I've got some Loon U/V thin and thick on order (would have picked @ edison but dumb me had already ordered a bunch the week before totally forgetting about the vendors at the upcoming show ... doh! )

Knew you were heading there, but was with two club members and wasn't sure of schedule etc etc with the crowd there.

I'm a bit ticked at myself, last year I "organized" my fly tying stuff so that I have most everything I want to use in one clear, but covered, plastic container, and clear bags within organized by feathers, furs, flash, hairs and a round craft standup containing hooks. It really is pretty well done.

Except.

Except for some reason I left out a plastic tray containing virtually all my crab materials, eyes (plastic and dumbell), legs, orange threads, some ep fiber, bodies...

Really pissed, I can't find it anywhere.

DOH... getting old s**cks with a bad memory

Going to work on more of these then change colors.

Seems like a versatile pattern.

yeah, I know I won't win any tying prizes, but I like the pattern and the materials.

Gonna do 6 in each color (already 6 in the chartreuse/yellow, yeah, I'm a slow tier )

Add a purple/black and a pink/white combo and I'll be done.

The red thread is just one strand of 4 strand floss (and I'm not worrying about a little tag under the Loon UV thin)

the pink throat is floro fiber which is uv active. some guides swear by it.
