"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Nice flies. 6 people in so far and there is still tomorrow if you haven't joined yet.
Thank goodness there's still tomorrow. It was my idea so I wanted to participate - I'm gonna be doing a demo of this fly in March so I wanted to practice it some before. This is my second go at it, but I've tied a bunch of classic "Bergman" wets.
This is a Bog Pond wet fly
Hook Mustad 3906 This is a size 6(new style apparently - micro barb and really heavy...)
Thread Black 6/0 Danville Flymaster
Tail - Golden Pheasant tippet fibers
Body - Black chennile - this is size "fine"
Wing - Mottled turkey wing quill slips
Hackle - Grizzly hen neck.
I'm not sure I understand the idea of the half way picture - my wife had the camera when I was tying so I tied a half of the fly and another complete fly and managed to get 1 decent picture of them both.
Thanks for looking and to those who submitted a fly this week.

I'm not sure I understand the idea of the half way picture -
I think it is just to show that you actually did tie it and not buy it?
