Half of these were tied yesterday and half today.  Some sliders made out of those double barrel popper bodies.   Wasn't really happy with the bodies a pain in the butt to get legs through and get a hole through the body to get the hook in.

 

A couple of group shots.

Very nice flytire, I thought these looked easy, but man I've never had such a simple looking fly make me feel more like an idiot.

Another set on weight hooks.  And yes, I hope the Brook Trout will like them.

Mickey Finns have done great work for me on perch, the basses, trout to include steel head ,and GL salmon. 

 

For a simple fly, it is a challenge to get it right..  

 

The biggest materials problem I have is finding fine deer hair dyed a deep vibrant red. Many reds now are washed out shading off to pink or orange.   I see the real thing it I buy it. 

 

The tying technique hurdles are to get the proportions right -- 1/2 yellow, over 1/4 red over 1/4 yellow;make a distinct break between the segments; keep it sparse; and manage a neat tapered head.
