  4. hi all this is a retie of the roe purple i done at the weekend many thanks for all your comments Matt i have used a finer tinsel in the tag looks better than the medium to those who commented on the roof i think it is a small improvement i think another few flies may improve my technique Ronn i followed the lines you put on my fly, not too bad on the body i dont think but the wing is still a problem, i probably handled it too much during tying i had to remarry it a couple of times i think i will tie the flies in Ronns lessons pages on his site there are still techniques i need to master ok then here is my retie a small improvement maybe?? all the best john
