Sorry the image is blurred and I know the fly is a bit sloppy (darn those hooks are tiny) but I couldn't wait to post this picture. I feel like a brand new parent...lol.

The pic really is blurry.
Can't really see enough to give you opinions.

If you have a compact camera with a macro setting try this "quick and dirty" method taking fly photos.

the only bit of critique i can give is to use the focus on your camera


The fish care less than we do!

Um ... I can't see the fly very well.  What I can see requires me to ask a question.

As a brand new parent of that fly ... have you been bitten by a mosquito recently ... possibly in Rio?

 

Just kidding ... I really cannot make out what it looks like.

Nice freaking dry fly. Way to go, keep it up and you will go far. I don't think he was looking for a critique. He was just proud of his 1st one.

Poopdeck was right. I wasn't really looking for a critique, I was just proud of the critter...lol. And I did mention that it was blurred, nevertheless, as soon as possible I will post a sharp pic of it and then I hope anyone who wishes to critique it, to have at it. Thanks to all.
