Gray Wolf’s White Tiger

It’s been a while since Streamers by Gray Wolf was on the web. He has since gone into retirement and taken his site offline. I managed to find a few images of his flies out there in the digital landscape and hope to bring a few to the readers here. The first one I tied is called Gray Wolf’s White Tiger. I love this color combination. Tied on a Mustad 3907B #2. This is based off of an tiny image of Gray Wolf’s White Tiger I found. I added the tag, and I’m not sure about the wing. The White may actually go on the outside.

Needle Shrimp – John Gray

Needle Shrimp – John Gray has developed a rather unique way of presenting a clump of fur to a fish using his needle (and needle tubes) method of tying. I have showcased his flies on here before, but this style needs mentioning again. The idea behind the needle fly is much the same as a Waddington shank or tube, a big fly and a short shanked hook. I would urge you to take a look at the site and try out a few of the patterns posted.
