Waste basket fly

I dug most of the materials out of my waste basket. The wings where the hardest past as they would role on hook the as soon as the thread came up tight. So they didn’t sit like I like but the fish won’t care.
Thanks for looking.

There is nothing wrong with dumpster diving for some material. And you are correct that the fish won't care. Well done and what a way to recycle and look at cuttings in the bin as usable material.

The materials may have come from the trash...but the fly sure doesn't belong there. Looks great and just plain fishy!!

I've used the waste at the base of the vice in the past. It's amazing what can be done with it especially if you do it. Nice!
