Yes the photography is so good it almost takes away from the otherwise good-as-it-gets flies. The wet fly above is very cool. I like the clear shiny resin coating on the quill body, and the loop woven hair hackle.

 

What puzzles me is how he did the photograph.  The fly seems to resting on white foam board with a black and green background far enough back to be out of focus.  So far so good.  But if that is white foam board the shank the of the hook is fixed somehow at a roughly 60 degree angle to horizontal.   In suspended animation somehow.  Very cool.

Lucien puts a magnet under the white sheet.  Holds the hook up like that.
