Had another long tying session today trying to get the hang of tying with turkey biots. I cant thanks gareth Lewis enough for his article here, http://www.ffisw.com/?p=7557, which really helped me get to grips with tying them in properly for the desired effect.
Anyway here are my efforts, not in the same league as his but I am relatively happy with them, any criticisms or suggestions? How many of you tie with turkey biots and what sort of flies do you use them for?
Olive paradun, probably the messiest fly i tied today but it floats really well in the glass of water test and i like the effect on the abdomen so thought i would share.
Tying the biot in the other way round results in the heavily segmented body seen in this CDC dun, not sure which i prefer?!
really liked the effect it created on the bodies above so decided to whack it on a buzzer. Was happy with the effect, the biots seemed to glow in the bright sunlight.
Cheers for reading
