Orange and Pink Variations

Inspired by Grandpa Marty, I tied a few of the bright day flies in combinations of pink with orange color, for some reason my phones camera doesn't capture the effect but these are Bright! Anyway, this is an ongoing experiment so critiques are welcome!

Thanks

Steve Cole

You pretty much got the bright sky, bright fly covered. But there is no reason you could not start the day with one of those. Outstanding work.

O&P Variants

Yes... Definitely have versions in mind for the Salt. This batch is going to my son in Juneau who I am sure will find the right venue for them. Going to tie up a couple that are styled after the General Practitioner too...

Thanks for the comments, fellas. I owe a couple of recipes to folks who asked and will get them out soon.
