Tied these up for a hybrid

Those look good James, I like the color co-ordination/contrast between the eyes and top of the body.  

And as always, great ties from everyone else.  Seeing all the different flies posted here is a treat.

I forgot the name of this

Again, nice clean tie McFly.  I'm not nearly as neat on my foam and hair flies.

Mark, I hate to say it, but I like the mixed brown and grizzly best.  

Kimo, you have that micro game changer dialed in.

Nice Adams collection! Do you use muskrat for all the bodies?

Thank You! I had to go to one size larger hook(Kona BGH, #6).
The smallies thrash quite a bit and they were getting unbuttoned.
I have some grey and silver ones I can't wait to fish for wiper with.
They key in on the shad at times.

You don't have to hate it. I'm not pushing a case either way. I like them all.

The differences, to me, are subtle but that's what fly tiers do, talk about subtle differences. I like to explore all possibilities.

I'll fish them all this summer and I am sure that other variables like bad casting, water conditions, delivery, time of day and other things will make a bigger difference than the feathers.

I think that confidence in a fly has more to do with it success than any other factor.

YMMV, I fish for stupid fish (that sounds very unkind to them) in very low pressure fisheries (they won't care what fly I use). Fishers in high pressure areas would probably have different results.

Thanks Julius, yes, all musk rat on these. I sometimes use gray poly dubbing for Adams. I decided to go classic on these. I see just a little bit of green in one of them that must have been picked up from my FT desk. That one will probably be the killer fly.

I saw a video of Davie McPhail tying this Black Adult Midge (Duck Fly).  Mine has a few differences from his.
