February Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

 

Powershooter and his eldest kid are good people.

How about the rest of his kids, are they good people too?smile.png

 

First: His other child wasn't there.

Second: Probably not. I, generally, can't stand kids. Bo's oldest is more adult, so he's okay.

Flytier, hope all goes well. Although I live in MS, Salmon and Steelhead flies are my favorite, followed by wets. Thanks for posting them.

Looking great. Don't forget to do some in obnoxious colors too. I had one I made similar to yours with loads of silver flashabou-like dubbing. The large mouth would not leave it alone.

 

Nothing like the others artists are posting, but this is my confidence fly. I fish it like a streamer more often than not. Trout and panfish love it.

2 rubber legs, peacock herl and hen hackle

Never thought to use leg material for the tail to add to the flys movement ....what a epiphany.

I will need to include some of these in my box for my next outing.

Light painted the background. Added color correction to light source bringing 3400˚K to 5500˚K.
Also knocked back the intensity of the lamp 1-stop by adding a ND filter over the light source.

Your medical sabbatical didn't dim your skills, flytire. Good to see everything turned out well.
