One of the most gorgeous dries I have seen in a while! Very nice!

I really like it. I fish allot of Royal Wulff in sizes 12, 14, 16 and this fly looks very similar but slightly easier to tie.

First attempt at marrying wings.

A valiant first attempt! Id recommend checking out Davie McPhail's video on married wings. He explains the process really well.

Dang, some nice ties the past few days,

@DFoster, that emerger is a beaut!

 

Dirty Lil' Dorothy, variant of the original by Mark Libertone

IMG-20210216-193005d.jpg

Hook: #12, GCO

Thread: Orange silk, size A

Thorax: Pale Yellow Rabbit Dubbing

Hackle: Pale Ginger hen (hence the 'Dirty", a tad darker than the original)

Thorax should start sooner and be a tad thicker at the throat, me thinks.  

 

Nice spider!

I've been tying a bunch of stuff. Working my way slowly through Rene Harrop's "Learning From the Water". Recipes upon request. 

I have to say everyone is doing a fantastic job this month.

Nice work. I just posted a Harrop no hackle bwo. I like these for the slow runs when the refusals add up.

That's nice of you to say Moshup- I'm just trying to fill the holes in my fly boxes because the sun isn't really burning out, I mean there will be a spring again right?
