How to Tie the Sparrow
Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions, offers his version of Jack Gartside’s venerable pattern in this great video. Flagler uses Chickabou and soft-hackle feathers in place of Gartside’s pheasant, creating a fly that retains the silhouette and versatility of the original, but with perhaps a bit more action and flash in the water. As usual, there are also some useful tying tips in Flagler’s lesson, such as wetting a feather to make it easier to work with and how to blend dubbing.
