July Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

A few more "fiber schwimps" from kids hair, 6 mm glass rattles, glass bead eyes, stout hooks and UV resin on the heads. Shortened up a bit for fewer missed strikes.

Nice fly Sandan. I took my red para ant out to Olympia lakes in Willingboro NJ. I was only one pulling in fish and they came from below to top feed. Most swallowed deep so lucky I did barbless.

"The Harlequin" - (or as close I can get, anyway)

 

I've wanted to tie this fly ever since I first saw the pattern. Unfortunately, it is still above my skill level, especially the wing, and this one has problems, but I'm still kind of proud of it. Faults and all. smile.png

Thanks Tom. Love it when it's your fly that's the one working. Nice ant too.
