Put Some Sting In Your Fly Tying
Desert fly fishers agree that nothing matches the late night hatch better than Paul Whillock's realistic scorpion fly.
In essence, my scorpion is tied ‘upside down’ with the hooks point becoming the tip of the sting. I tie each of the abdominal sections in the same manner as the main body using tightly bound micro suede chenille however, the ‘Sting’ is the final part to be tied and has to be completed “In hand” as there is no way of holding the hook in the vice.
