  1. Sometimes your mind plays tricks on you and you see what you want to see. Case in point, yesterday I published a picture of a Colonel Fuller. Something in the the back of my mind kept nagging me. Something was not quite right with the fly. After ten minutes comparing the fly to pictures on the internet it finally dawned on me that the wings on the fly I had tied were yellow with an orange stripe. The Colonel Fuller, however, has yellow wings with a red stripe. I don't know why I kept seeing an orange when I was looking at red.
  2. It was a size 14, I will probably use a 12 or 10 on the next one. Thanks for the input!
  3. My first attempt at a Colonel Fuller. Marrying the wings wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, although that could just be beginners luck. I will probably work on other flies from Bergman's book. One of these days, though I am going to have to try those deer hair reverse parachutes.
  4. I would get in touch with your local fly shop and see if they offer fly tying classes. You might also try contacting Trout Unlimited to see if there is a local chapter in your area that offers fly tying classes.
  5. One is two black strands and one red strand of wire. The other is two black and one green.
