Some old. Some new.

I haven't had much time at the vice lately. Hope to be posting more as work slows down this summer. I'm getting the itch to tie Salmon flies again.

So many beautiful flies have been posted recently. I'm always impressed with how good you all are. As always thank you for sharing.

Hope all is well.
Shannon

OH MY !!!
The red and black really stands out to me ... but I love purple flies ... I'm always a fan of a Carron fly ... and an Akroyd with cinnamon wings is hard to beat !!
How do you decide on the river ...

Would be hard to find better examples, just outstanding flies and tying!
The GAUNTLET has been thrown, and I find myself lacking. Perfection indeed!

So beautiful! Can I ask what feathers you’re using for the purple grizz and black feather wings? Seems like the necks I’ve found have so little web that there’s no body to the tips. Your flies are very inspiring!

Hi Jazzman,

I used strung saddle on the black wing and the purple is from a mid 90's Keough neck.

I buy every 90's or later grizzly neck I can afford from Metz, Keough, Hoffman, Darby/Miner, Ewing and Spenser. I like clean, well defined even barring and rounded tips.

I'm not a fan of Whiting's "American" necks for a few reasons, the "grizzly" is a variant and most have a pointed tip similar to Chinese capes. The quality is great, it's just not the look I'm after.

Thanks for checking out the flies. Take care.
Shannon

Edit: also, old Hareline Capon necks are fantastic too when you can find them.

Thanks - I have tons of Keough stuff through the years from tying at the shows, but recent dyed necks I’ve gotten are kinda skinny with no web
