Chukarhun99 Flees tied in hand for the FFC

John's a busy fellow and doesn't get to post his flies as much as I'd like him to but boy, am I grateful for his patterns...even if they are for the Fly Fishing Collaborative wallet. A big heart for sure who reaches out to strangers like me, Chukarhun99 ties some beautiful flies with soul...all in hand and this time it's for the orphans.

Let the curtain rise...

I'm just awestruck by the flies that have come through for FFC. I have been privileged by being the hub for these patterns before they go to the FFC crew. Imagine if Kelson, P-T, Murdoch and their contemporaries sent their patterns to one fellow who got to view them all in hand...mind boggling, but that's how I feel. Take a bow fellows.

Agreed, these are some incredible ties.

I do have to ask Adrian, where is that rock you shoot against? LOL. Your back yard? A favourite run on a river? It sure is a cool back drop.
