http://globalflyfisher.com/video/index.php?q=more_by/Davie%20McPhail#46155 Brian, We cannot help you. You will have to purchase flies in a flyshop - online or in real life. You can't buy them from an online magazine or video channel like this. Martin

Blog Creek http://globalflyfisher.com/blog/index.php?d=378#46119 The biggest theft I ever had was a fly company that stole my patterns, copied them, made them into commercial flies and put them in a catalog. That jerk then sent me a catalog and asked me if I wanted to buy the patterns. Sometime later he he then contacted me and asked where he could buy the materials to make the flies. Piracy knows no bounds. There are assholes everywhere. I assume if I put something out there, its will get ripped off. I love when competitors steal images and use them on their sites....I only wish they would buy the stuff from me. Ebay slugs are the worst, they copy all including the text and offer goods at 20-30% off retail prices. ALL of my stuff is copyrighted. I had an author publish a column exactly copying my text word for word with no credit. I almost sued that local newspaper that is part of a giant chain. The editor was friends with one of my customers and got an earful on the golf course. It is a very small town and we are all neighbors.

The "Peach Orange" is a Dry Fly built on a size 12 hook. Thread is white 6/0. The body is formed using the bottom fluffy part of the Hen feather trimmed off and then made into a dubbing loop wrapped around the hook. The Florescent Orange feather fibers were pulled away from the stem and then tired onto the hook shank to form the top wing. the head was formed using the white thread. It was finished off using Sally Hansen hard as nails sparkle gloss. Don't tell my niece that I used her nail polish for my flies. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=72981ccf6a5e

The Orange Blossom is built on a size 10 bait hook. White 6/0 thread was used to cover the lead .015 wire wound over the shank twice. Florescent dubbing was wound around the white thread and then wrapped over the shank of the hook. The first wing was a Hot Florescent Strung hackle that extended past the bend of the hook. The second pair of wings was a light Hen hackle used to offset the outside of the fly. The head was finished with 7/32" golden holographic eyes and then I used Loon's UV head cement to complete the head. A small amount of clear hard as hull head cement was used to seal the Loon's resin. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=c83ef0853986

The Badger is a dry fly. I used a size 10 Mustad dry fly hook with the eye down. The thread was dark brown 6/0. The tail fibers were Squirrel and the Body was Badger fur. The head was part of the Badge fur that stood erect after I tied the fur in place. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=a49c86dbbb0b6

This fly is called the "Puff Fly." It is built on a size 12 bait hook. The tail is a small white feather taken from underneath of the wing of the Mallard Duck. The thread is black 6/0. The over wing is a grey Guinea feather that acts like Marabou but has white spots at the end of each fiber. I used a medium gold bead and 15 turns of .015 lead wire from the front of the hook turning backwards. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=a3ec76c414f7b

These two flies are my "Rocket Streamers." The one on the left is built on a tube and the one on the right is built on a hook. The tube fly is built as a "step down" from a medium size rigid tube to a micro tube for the head of the fly. The materials used are: orange rooster hackle for the body wing; mallard grizzly feathers for the underwing; black rooster hackle for the over wing and jungle cock eyes for the side wings. Thread was black ultra thread. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=28386a186780

Tail wings come from the Whiting Farm's 4 B Rooster Cape color variant. The wings are from the Mallard duck. I used red 1/4" holographic eyes and finished the head with Loons UV thin head cement. http://globalflyfisher.com/pix/display.php?code=c873cd151917
