2014 Fly Carpin Swap Submission

Concepts, components of various mutant carp flies all thrown into a decanter of Black Bottle Blended Scotch and then hung out to dry on an old Griffen vise.

Recipe and/or the amalgamation and/or the unity of multiple entities.  Keeping in mind that It is only good manners if you repeat a few other men to at least do it better or more briefly. Utter originality is of course out of the question. - E. P.

The Peabody may be called the basic starting point.  It's ribbed peacock herl under a soft hackle.  See citation at end, from an old issue of Fly Tyer Magazine on my shop shelf.  I think it was noted in critique somewhere that it is much like a partridge and orange.  So maybe it is not even a bookend in itself but one must start somewhere.  From there, these attributes were pooled:
(1) The soft hackle of the Carp Carrot and the Montana Carrot.
(2) Deep burgundy of the carp-effective San Juan Worms.
(3) Headstand of the LOD.
(4) Twist tail of the FYI.
(5) Foam tab of the Holschlag Hi-Tail Craw.
(6) Worm + soft hackle of the Hybrid.

Top it off with the fact that the soft hackles are all from a pheasant skin provided by my neighbor (salted it and set it in my basement, pinned on a sheet rock scrap) and you have a shady shade lethal Deadpool with Great Plains roots.  I did some testing in water tubs; the sink rate is pretty good.  I left the foam tabs on the large side, so folks can trim as they see fit.  Thanks McTage for another swap invitation.

...Stryker activates Wade, now Weapon XI, a "mutant killer" with the powers of multiple mutants: Logan's healing power, John's teleportation, Summers' energy blasts, and Wade's swordsman skill; Bradley's electropathy was used to enable Stryker to control him completely. Stryker refers to Weapon XI as the "Deadpool".


Headstand for me.  Lightest colors I tried.  Probably least favorite iteration.

Here with some flashier chenille paired with the standard burgundy.

Plainest: worm chenille and dark soft hackle.

I'm telling you.  I like this fly.  Twisting the tail like that really keeps it in place and that foam tab lifts the ass right up.  This thing will sit and chat and sit and chat and wait.  It's going to get the shit kicked out of it is what it comes down to I think.

Peabody citation.  And Deadpool image credit goes to moviecroft.com; it was free wallpaper so figured okay to use.

Sweet. The headstand really can make a big difference sometimes.
