Black Whooly Bugger and a Grey Wulff, the body got away from me a little bit on the Wulff. IMG_6374.thumb.JPG.f7abfe06829d0f8902f13d2c37bf5fa7.JPGIMG_6401.thumb.JPG.1b03bb306d72dc21dbef1e6c4a18265c.JPG

Practice makes...well...still far from perfect.

Some Neversink Caddis ties from this morning.  Started looking passable (to me) by the fourth attempt.

thread - UTC 140 tan
tail - pheasant rump
body - pheasant rump/pheasant shmootz (like marabou)
collar/head - deer hair

Regards,
Scott

First Catskill attempt.

Nice Adams Landon, tied in Catskill style it should lose some weight and you should keep the original grizzly hackle tip wings. I had similar issues tying Catskill dubbed bodies a good friend would tell me to dub my thread with what I thought I needed then take half of it off. Makes for the slender body of Catskill  style dries . A secret to the level body is to cut the wing base at 90 degrees (not tapered) then butt your tail material to the cut wing base that will keeps your body from having the hump. And just for info the Adams was originated in Michigan so you can tie it in Catskill style and it is in many books, but not a true Catskill fly, not really important just wanted you to know that.

My first attempt at a foam ant fly.

I know fish that would gobble it up!  You could compare the pic against others (I am not an expert), but I think I would move the tail end further back on the hook some. If that's a 1x hook, maybe try a hook with a regular length shank.  I'd have to see the example you were shooting for to know whether the "segmentation" (my word) came out right. There are a lot of different ants out there, but I doubt the fish know that! %-)
