Fly Tying

Here you'll find some twists on familiar themes along with some flies original to Carl Hutchinson. We have included these flies as we have found a way of either improving them or tying them in an unconventional way Check back for more flies in a regular basis




These flies have Caught fish all over the world from Grayling to Mullet; from Chub to trout. They are easy to tie, and look just like the real thing! (Whatever that is!)

Hook: any to suit.
Body: Silicone tubing sold in Sea fishing tackle shops for making paternosters.
Rib: Clear or coloured mono (I have used 8lb Ashima Fluorocarbon here)
Thread: shows through tubing so affects the colour of the fly, I use green, red, brown and black.

The effect required

A juicy looking fly the trout cannot resist!

Tying Method

This is more a general tying method and can be adapted to tie any of the flies above and countless others. Add this effect to your usual fly and see the difference. The following method is for the standard WonderGrub and can be adapted to suit

1) Place the hook in the vise and start the thread at the eye. Wind the thread down the hook shank and back to the eye
2) Tie in the mono ribbing at the head and tie along the hook shank to the desired end of the fly. Return the thread back to the eye.
3) Cut a piece of tubing the same length as the thread whipping*
*Note: This is the method for a gold head in case a head is added.

4) Cut a 2-3 mm slit in the tail end of the tubing. This makes tying it in easier.
5) slide the tubing over the mono ribbing and up to the hook point with the slit end going on last. Feed the tubing over the hook point and around the bend keeping the mono ribbing tight.
6) Place the slit cut in the tubing to the outside of the bend and pulling the mono straight out from the hook, fit the slit over the mono.
7) Make two turns around the tubing catching it in place and begin ribbing the mono, under tension, up the hook and tie in at the eye. The tubing will squash and lengthen as it goes.
8) Form a neat head with the thread, whip finish and varnish.
9) With sharp scissors, trim the tag end of the tubing to finish the fly.

This method can be used for all sorts of bodies.
Here is a Damsel Fly Nymph with green thread used underneath the tubing.
