Claudia,

I've been tying soft hackles and midges of late. Nothing fancy, but I enjoy tying them. Sorry, no pics.

Interesting thread!
I have been working on this fly for well over a month, and I am about to put head cement on it and call it a fly. My first Ronn Lucas hook, so you can see why I would take my time on this one.
Phew!!!

Unfortunately, I don't own a digital camera, so will not be able to post pictures.

I've been tying some rabbit strip flies for largemouth bass, and for striped bass. Also been tying some shad flies and flies for perch & crappies.

Claudia, you're flies are beautiful! thumbup.gif

Hi my name is Charlie
I have been tying for only 2 years but I like to tie salmon and trout flies.
As of late I have been tying para adams, comets and stuff like that.
I still am not that accomplished and am looking to see if anyone has some new ideas and or helpful tips that I might be able to apply to my flies.
I am open to all comments.
Thanks
Charlie

By the way
Awesome flies everyone.
EAT, SLEEP....... GO FISHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Claudia: Your flies are superb, and incredibly original. The high wings and the wispy hair make them look like they would pulsate in the water.

Glad yall like the fly. It has been a long project, changed shapes many times throughout.. lots of unwinding and cutting.

Charlie: perhaps you could tell us what you are interested in, or where you would like to take your tying. It is pretty much infinate, so tips or hints are hard without some sort of direction.
