Beautiful stones!    Your consistency is really impressive, they look like they hatched from the same egg.  The mark of an accomplished fly tyer.

Thanks Chug-  These are the first flies I've ever tied for someone else.  I've been tying as a hobby for a decade and it's only recently that I feel I can do enough justice to some of the common patterns to give them away as "correctly tied".  I only tie a total of a few hundred flies in a year and thanks to a good friend I'll probably never need to buy Turkey feathers again.  I can't imagine using them all!

@DFoster, excellent work, those Artful Dodgers are beautiful.  

  Thanks - I don't know much about the pattern.   I have been seeing the fly on the internet for years but it was always just a photo without a name..  Then the other day I found a post on line calling it an "Artful Dodger".  A google search revealed that there is a classic salmon fly by that name (below).   From what I could find when it comes to the trout flies any fly with a mottled wing and wine floss body uses that name. 

The local trout seem to like purple in the spring so I'm hopeful they'll bite.

Thank you- since It's Bergman I'm glad I added "variant" to the name.  I could have got myself into trouble there-😮

This is going in the canal test box. The canal has panfish, pickerel, walleye, LMB, catfish, carp, stocked trout and pretty much anything else that swims in fresh water. It also has miles and miles of walking paths along its banks that me and the wife walk down. I do carry a rod and my test box with me so I can toss flies into fishy spots along the way.
