I found your video first class. Tied a couple of the orange firetail cascade last week. Although I am fairly new to fly tying, they are the best looking flies I have tied to date because of your tips. Fished a pool on the Tyne this am. Simply Red first time down. OFC second time and got a lovely fresh 9 lb cock fish second cast! My new favourite fly now! Thanks for taking the time to make such an informative video Easky.
Here's my first attempt.
Not happy with it, didn't even bother varnishing the head as I'm going to retry.
Had no yellow bucktail ether [IMG]http://i1285.photobucket.com/albums/a583/Darraghdigney/20130922_110057-1_zpsdb21fea4.jpg[/IMG]
Looks spot on and as SS says very 'fishable'. I actually like the variation of blk in the tail and may tie up a few like it to try!
Another good variation worth trying at this time of yr is a red version - red buck tail and fox in tail and red rather than orange hackle
I like the red idea. Simply Red is a very successful Tyne fly. Are you suggesting all red or red mixed yellow, I suspect the former? Still with a black wing?
