    I see nothing wrong with the flies on your rod handle. In fact I like them!

    apparently the tree liked it too.. that was the first stone ive tied that i was proud of.... for some reason i always have trouble with stones, and i dont understand why, i can tie similar flies with my eyes closed....... just wish i took better pictures of it before going out...

    if my memory serves me correctly.....
    size 16 nymph hook
    black goose biots for the tail and legs
    small black wire for the body
    black hairline dubbin for the thorax
    the wing case is pheasant tail fibers,you guessed it, dyed black
    thread is again, black
    and the bead head was gold.... so i colored it black.. surprise surprise!
    i cant remember if i wrapped the hook with lead or not.... i think i did, that thing had some weight to it!

    if every cast caught a fish, it would be called "catching" not "fishing"

    The one you tied looks excellent, in my opinion.

    thanks for the compliment, personally i think every pattern thus far is exceptionally tied.... as soon as i get off i think im going to tie a few up, heck, i might as well do a SBS on it lol

    my problem is i spend too much time on the flies for myself, and i cant justify filling an order with time spent on each one.... people come into the shop asking for a specific fly, i spin 10 up, and 9 sit there for a long time... i guess thats what i get for having my flies in bait shop, not a fly shop!
