Leisure Suit

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

I tied this one and the wife named it. She said it reminded her of the old leisure suits.

 

Anyway, originally I had a G.P. tail but it just didn't look right with it so I cut it off.

 

I think this is a bit better but who knows.

 

Rock on,

Gar

Thanks guys.

 

Believe it or not the color scheme I got off a guys shirt I saw one day. I stared at it and memorized the color pattern then when I got home I wrote it down and here I am today.

 

Bud: you're probably right. I get a lot of my ideas through things I have seen here. One day I'll wake up and there will be a thought or picture stuck in my head that I came across from this site. I love it. I've never been so motivated to try new things or to just tie. Great place to learn.

 

Rock on,

Gar

I think I once owned a leisure suit that had those colors!

 

Looking back, I can't believe I wore it -- even while performing my duties as a television news reporter (and no, I wasn't the test pattern)!

 

I'm really enjoying those colors on this fly, but the memories of that leisure suit are a bit painful....
