  11. How long is it taking you to knock these out now? You're getting consistently brilliant on them. If I have everything in front of me: about 1 hour for these smaller ones, I don't rush it. Doing many in one sitting helps
  12. A couple of Green Highlanders on a #1 Partridge M2 hook, still a long way to go before the season starts.....
  13. Three classics ready this morning: Jock Scott, Green Highlander and Black Doctor, all tied on Partridge M2 #2/0
  14. Looking good: the body work is getting better and the ribs are nice and even! A few tips: flatten out the silk you are using - look at the tag, it has some bumps. If possible: use smaller tinsel for the tag, makes the fly look much better. Try a shorter wing, that will help out with the overall impression of the pattern, and will help with the topping flowing over the wing.
  15. Some of the last in January: Jock Scott on Partridge M2 #2/0 http://flyhooks.org/partridge/m2-heavy-salmon-single http://flypattern.org/search?s=jock scott
  16. Another Sunturn Flare, this time on a Flemming No.4 hook
  17. Not fully gutted this one, but I'll sure tie up some of this to fish with next year!
  18. The 5th edition of my sunturn tradition, a freestyle fly inspired by good music, a good beer and the winter solstice: http://flyfisher.org/2018/12/sunturn-flare/
  19. Miss Elinor on a Mustad 3582C #4
  20. Thanks all! Appreciate the nice words
  21. Here is a rather large Floodtide on a #8/0 iron. Had to do a couple of adjustments to get the material to fit on this large hooks, but the end result was not bad
