@Moshup , @DFoster Soft hackle goodness, nice!

@SBPatt excellent as per usual!

Thanks- I just got a couple packs of firehole hooks, they've been out of stock and are a late Christmas present from my daughter.  They're really nice hooks in general but exceptionally nice for soft hackles.  I'm struggling with the temptation to tie more but my soft hackle box is pretty full at the moment.

@SBPatt Scott your deer hair work is second to none.  Absolutely perfect!

Looks like a midge pattern tied in the reverse - cant tell for sure if it's a wire/tube body and herl/dubbed fur head for the specific name of the pattern.  By the lower picture it looks like it's in the top row right and by the size of you thumb looks like it's an 18-22 hook so that also matches a midge size.

Red annelid from what I gather

Now there is a vise you don’t see everyday.  I think the A.K. best McKensie is pretty rare as are the accessories. Nice!

So far I found the clip, and a pedestal with the clip. Working on trying to find the bobbin, bobbin holder and a couple of other things.

I haven't tied any flies since October of 2018 due to a bunch of medical experiences and moving back down from Pullman, WA to Los Angeles. My youngest daughter Ally, who is in Veterinary Medicine School at WSU , in Pullman, bought me some tying goodies for Xmas and told me that it was time to get back on the horse...
