Thanks a lot wink.gif
It is a simple pattern but still not easy to find a good picture of the Mosquito - at least I found only two good ones as a reference.
I do like to database here so I felt I should add something myself from time to time.
I'm tying for two years now - still a newcomer and my main focus at the moment is to work on simple patterns and trying to do them as perfect as I can yahoo.gif

Cheers!

I am in my second tying year also. The most important thing I have learned, is to use materials sparsely. And there is no substitute for good quality hackles.

Here are some Mosquito images I have collected, I hope they are of some use to you.

Nicely tied cool.gif That's a great dry fly for trout.

My biggest brookie was from a mosquito fly, tied with moose hair (one light, one dark) for the body.


I don't have any pictures of a mosquito fly, but I gave up a bit of blood for these pictures...

Just tied my first attempt at a Mosquito pattern, it's a bit different to the standard patterns but may give you some more ideas. I call it 'Megamos'. Pattern Here

Nice classic mosquito. I love it. Great pattern for the high lakes around here.
