    Default Bangor Duster

    One of my favourite hackled flies.
    Hook: Tiemco 100 #18
    Tails: Duck Flank
    Body: Mole fur
    Hackle: Grizzle
    Thread: Benecchi 12/0

    Please see Spy1's post about taking the mole rope right through to the eye then wrapping the hackle over it.

    Start thread and run down to barb, build a thread bump here to raise the tails and tie tails in.



    Cut excess and run thread back to barb.



    Rake a bit of mole from the pelt.



    Split thread and insert dubbing



    Spin to make dubbing rope.



    Wind body to hackle tie in point and tie in grizzle hackle.




    Wrap hackle and whip finish.




    One tied with mole rope run through to the eye.

    Nice step by step Tango, nice fly. I'd be interested to know where you got the dubbing rake as I have'nt seen one like that.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    Halfway down this page, it's the Waldren fine ceramic. Lakeland is the only place I know that does them, perhaps someone knows where else to get them from.

    Tango, please take this in the manner it is intended, the Bangor Duster you have tied is very nearly right, as you take the dubbing rope down towards the hook eye, trap the hackle in under the rope about 1/8" from the eye and carry on winding the rope to near the eye, leaving enough room for your whip finish, overwind the hackle over the molefur rope starting with a small open turn towards the eye and build up tighter as you near the eye. The amount of molefur you are using is fine in the rope, just make the rope longer for the purpose.

    To all, the 'Bangor Duster' is a variation of the 'Grey Duster' tied very many moons ago by a Bangor on Dee Angler and its a great fly.

    Constructive criticism is always welcome boss, how else are we learners going to learn?

    Someone put me on a bum steer at Chirk, must have been Dylan.

    I shall ammend the first post forthwith.

    If you are still a learner then I have not even got to the stage of opening the vice jaws.

    Not true Gary, those bugs of yours from the grayling swap are better than mine.

    I may have improved but I still have a lot to learn.
