Very impressive


My passion is my wife and then my fishing. Sometimes she thinks it is the other way around.

MW ... I've said this to some of the other realistic tiers here, and it applies to you, too !!!

 

You can't stick a hook through a real bug, and then say you tied a fly !!!

Yes, that looks fantastic.  Excellent work!!!

Bimini ... you don't taper the mono, you build up UV or other resin on the mono, if I remember correctly.

Hi,

 

@ Streambum4trout: no, it's made only for Display :-)

@ Bimini15 & Mikechell: what Mikechell wrote is correct and work well, no doubt... but i went another way. I cut the Mono to shape with a Scalpell :-)

So you must be a doctor...cosmetic surgeon to have knife skills with something sooo small.
