Looking better than my slip wing attempts. I would most certainly fish them.

Hey xgolfman,
I met you at Howard Miller Steelhead Park last winter. You left one of your flies on my windshield. I have it as a model at my tying bench. Great work!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Looks good. Just keep at it. Eventually your mind and limbs come back to you, at least most of the way.

Hang in there my brother
Your tying is great therapy for your soul ... keep at it ... and keep posting your creations please !!
I really like the last one ... it's something I would swing on the east coast for Atlantics

Well I think it’s great! And I’m happy you posted it 👍😎

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
