Hey Just, I don't do that kind of tying...so I can't critique your work. But, that is cool. Cheers, Ed

Um ... my only critique is for you to quit killing little bugs by sticking hooks through them.

Barbed hooks rule!

Very nice fly.

Only critique I can put on it, is the lack of tails. Also, tails might help in getting nicer taper at the rear end of the abdomen.

maybe a little more leg and head work



Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.
