Evening gents
Playing with some winged wets.I really love the Bergman patterns but I dont feel really comfortable with them. Tell me mates, what material are you using for the wings?

Mallard for the smaller sizes, goose for the larger.

Niklas,

That's a well-tied fly. The wings look particularly nice!

Best,

Tim

nik,

they older wets used everythng available but liked duck secondary wing quills for the trout sizes, goose wings and turkey wings were used as well...these are for married wings....

when using these quills remember that you can get only a few flies from a pair. AND many of his flies that he tied and used (he didn't use all the flies in his book) like the parmachene's in larger sizes #4- #6 were not married wings but , as in the case of the parmachene wing, a solid white wing with side splints faster to and easier to tie.

nice work
yo

Thank´s Ted.. I can imagine the feathers only hold a few pair of wings, it´s har d to find materila that are easy to use.. You need to give me a lesson in looking what to look for when we meet in April..

Later
