The month is starting strongly. Just playing a the bench yesterday and twisted this up.  A bit different from the small stuff I usually tie.

Can you guys throw up some ugly flies once in a while? biggrin.png

 

Seriously, opening this thread is like opening the art of fly tying book and seeing every little detail considered and perfected. An example of what I mean is in the very first picture (which I know a lot of you already know), the brown buck, that body is so freaking flawless and every single fiber in the herl is in the perfect position, the mosquito body is the same, perfectly pulled mohair...look no further than here. Just perfection!

 

Awesomeness everyone (and last month too because I did not chime in)! Every month there are some unbelievable flies and some days all I can do is marvel looking at them.

Not all mine comes out first time but still fishable. Filling up my fly hat with a variety and logging patterns and recipes with pics for my aged mind to remember these days.

Thanks for the compliment.
