Hello All,

I'd like to share a picture of my latest fly. I'm pretty happy with it, although i had a go at a herl head, which is ok, but i think it tends to over power the front of the fly. I did mean for the front body to be a little longer than the rear section but looking at it now, i should have stuck with the straight half and half.

 

Comments and criticisms are always welcome :)

Superb! Veilings - Golden Bird Of Paradise?

Personally the body proportion works just right for me.

Thank you for the kind words.

 

Steelyjim--it's a fly i tied to my own specification. I drew inspiration for a couple of sources, Traherne's Sir Moses being one, but i don't like gold tinsel.

 

Tyrone, Mr Lucas Should recognise the hook, it's one of his!

 

Mr. C., Possibly :P

this is an extrodinary fly, i was in conversation over the phone with a friend while we were looking at your fly, taking it apart visually and admiring your work and applications of rare materials. superbly done
