Your photo is really awesome, lighting is just great. ¬†That is a nicely proportioned Firetail -Brown Hackle Peacock,¬†for out here on the Frontier.... Bushier collars for big rough, waters... just right for clear, still water #<\= 14ūüĎć

Finally ... a nice, clear picture of one of your flies.

Just put a background behind that so the clutter of your tying desk isn't showing and that would be a perfect picture.

.89,Hobby Lobby- type craft foam sheets, get assortment of about 5 colors and see which works with your lighting conditions.  Look at color backgrounds on this thread...  Default is neon blue

That's what I use, no shortage of background colors.  Either laid flat on my desk, or hung off my lamp with a magnet and binder clip.

niveker, the hoppers are just super, great blend of natural makings.  What is your preference for underbody, we would go with yellow, tan, or pale green poly dubbing with traces of red and black? Maybe,  Brown hackle, sparse..

Thanks for posting.

Thanks FRN, wish I could post more often.  The feather is a skin from my dog's first (and only) hen pheasant . 

For these, the body is a light tan Aunt Lydia's Sparkle Yarn that I hit with a yellow marker, though I think a pale green could work also. I twist it before wrapping to suggest segmentation, then brown hackle, cut short on the top and bottom to keep it low in the water and allow the wing to lay flat.  Kelly Galloup suggests tying in a whole sprig of golden pheasant tippet as an underwing. I liked that idea, but do not keep alot of GP tippet on hand, so I tried orange kip tail instead,  but did not like the way it prevented the over wing from laying flat.   The over wing is varnished, as its easier for me to tie and lay properly that way.
