A bit of feedback please.

Recommended Posts

Well I am throwing in the towel and wanting a bit of feedback here. Posted a few flies when I started in Sept. for you to critque and was hoping that you could do the same with these.

Great looking flies buddy! No need to throw in the towel looks like your ready to sit and tie up a whole fly box for next season! The fish will go crazy for them!

 

Best Wishes,

Sam

Gary I just went back and compared some of your first flies you posted a couple months ago, Huge improvement bud! :headbang: Your clouser looks 10 times better and the others are just as improved. Doing very well in my opinion, keep it up :)

Thanks SD, I laugh even now if you only new how hard it was for me to position those first few hooks in the vise with my fumble fingers and worn out eyes. Here I was 48yrs. old, blind in one eye and finger the size of hotdogs, I am happy I started on the smaller hooks at the beginning #16 no not 28"s (cant get them here, been waiting 3 weeks for some 20's and 22's) just so as to get my eyes and fingers working.

 

Next on the list is a trip to North Toronto or a mail order to J. Stockards for some quality hackle not number 1 but something other then the mid to low quality saddle hackle we get locally.
