Didn’t remember dyeing stuff in rust ; found the bag digging for something else and liked the color.  With a bit of imagination, it’s sort of an October Caddis; I’ll skip the thorax next time since it gets buried.

hook - Sierra 7999 #8
thread - UTC 70 burnt orange 
tail- pheasant rump dyed rust (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange, 1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow/1 cup water)
rib - small wire copper
underbody - Orvis Saltwater thread fluoro orange
body - medium tinsel pearl
thorax - aftershaft dyed orange (1 Tbs Rit Sunshine Orange/ 1 cup water)
wing - deer hair 
shoulder - pheasant rump dyed orange 
hackle - badger dyed  rust

Regards,
Scott

You are correct, it's a ringneck breast feather, the smaller ones are higher up, closer to the neck.

@niveker Good job on the hackle wrap.  That feather can be kind of “wanky”.

Thanks, yes, they are a bit unruly,  thought it does have very nice shades of color and beautiful markings.

how about some new blood start posting some flies instead of the same 6-8 tyers that post here

I answered your call.... I guess that the flies I posted didn't quite stack up. Mayhap that is the reason "new blood" tyers don't feel comfortable posting here. I do miss SBPatt's fantastic ties and more importantly the way he provides SBS posts for the "new blood". (Westfly connection) Beyond that... neat little club the 6-8 of you have here.... Scott, I would love to connect with you again. I always had a ton of respect for you and learned a great deal from your posts over all of these years. I'm not sure how messaging works here but you can reach me at [email protected]

Peace

Not really sure what you mean.  I made a comment on your posted flies that went unanswered. 

Nearly all the flies posted here include a recipe, and I think nearly all who post flies here, regularly or sporadically, are more than willing to answer questions about any technique used, if asked.  Nearly never is a negative comment made on a tyers posts to make them feel unwelcome.  Is it the lack of commenting that you're referring to?

there has been some unwanted critiques in the past so maybe the critique guidelines have something to do with it

Please read these critique guidelines - The Fly Tying Bench - Fly Tying (flytyingforum.com)

Beyond that... neat little club the 6-8 of you have here

there is no "club" so there is no membership required

don't be discouraged if you didn't receive a lot of responses regarding the flies you posted or will post in the future

i don't get many responses either on the flies i post here. i don't let it bother me

MillCreek, you have already gotten the ONLY answer you need from the Sea Run Cuts.  I agree with niveker, that your patterns do have a lot of movement.  What others say here matters very little.  What the fish say is the important thing.
