I tied my first batch of polish woven nymphs, after practicing the shuttle weave a little first. Any comments are appreciated.

Chugbug27,
Looks good! Been playing with them myself of late, mostly on stonefly type patterns and non traditional nymphs.

One thing that helped me a lot was wetting the embroidery floss before weaving.

I always think of woven flies as very buggy and realistic.
Nice work cb27!

I like the look of woven flies.  Haven't gotten up the oomph to try them, yet.

 

Yours look pretty good, Chugbug.

They look really good. It's been YEARS since I did a woven fly. Back about 15 yrs ago there was a guy here named Brent that use to do them all the time and taught me. I remember them taking some time to do when I did them but woven flies always have such a neat look to them. Nice work.

Nice, the fish will be taking numbers to bite on those.
