    Default March 2017 Tie Of The Month - Hairwing versions of Featherwing Classics

    Welcome to the March 2017 Tie Of The Month Competition - Hairwing Versions of Featherwing classics.

    There's loads of choice for everyone here, you could tie a version of a classic that everyone knows, like a Dunkeld or a Jock Scott;

    or you could have a go at a pattern that is less well known, like the 'Amethyst' recently emerged classic Mackerel fly, the 'Blue Baronish'

    A decent number of quality entries last month so let's keep it up and enjoy the tying gents.


    Points of Clarification
    You can tie the fly on any hook or tube.

    ABOUT THE COMPETITION:

    1. The first rule of TOTM is that Everyone needs to keep talking about TOTM, the second is that everyone is welcome, experts or amateurs, lets get the entries in. The third rule is that we need more entries, keep them coming!
    2. The tying competition has a different theme each month.
    3. At the end of the month there will be a poll to vote the winner. The poll will run the entirety of the following month.
    4. Points are awarded for simply entering, with additional points awarded for placing first, second and third.
    5. Whichever participant has the most points at the end of the year wins the prize.
    6. The competition will run from Jan - December 2017
    7. We are still trying to solicit some prizes from the Editor.

    Points work thus:

    1. Each entry will be worth 4 points. You get points for simply entering. This is an increase in the participation points awarded from last season.
    2. First place will be worth 10 points.
    3. Second place will be worth 8 points. This is an increase in the points awarded from last season.
    4. Third place will be worth 7 points. This is an increase in the points awarded from last season.
    5. In the event of a tie for first, second, and/or third in number of votes, all tied participants get equivalent points.

    This means you can win the whole event, without ever winning a single month's competition simply by participating. Though, there is incentive for tying something nice which could get you some better point totals and increase your odds.


    Again, the March 2017 theme is going to be; Hairwing versions of Featherwing Classics

    RULES:

    1. One entry per participant.
    2. Fly mustve been tied by you.
    3. One photograph of a fly or flies following the theme. Entries with more than 1 photo will be immediately disqualified. ONE PHOTO ONLY.
    4. More than one fly in the photograph is acceptable, they may not be identical (ie. one can be upon a tube and another upon a hook or one on a single hook and another on a double, etc.) but they must all be the same tying of the pattern.

    Points of Clarification
    You can tie the fly on any hook or tube.
    You can use as many or as few of the ingredients as you'd like
    You can use any kind of hair or feather, as long as you stick to the colours
    You can use flouro colours if you want and I'm not precious about what precise shade of green but remember green is green not olive.
    You can use SLF or Seals Fur or Spanglysparkle dubbing, as long as it's orange.
    You can use Cock or Hen Hackles as you see fit, but no Badgers
    You can Palmer, Beard or wind your hackles, tie them in at the tail, the front and / or in the middle..... you get the idea
    GK
    Did you mean to keep the ban on badger hackles and insistence on Orange and green in the clarification or is it just freestyle so long as it has a hair wing and is based on a classic?
    thanks

    That is definitely allowed, that's a lovely fly and a high bar to start with.
