Oh yes! Beautiful stuff

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

All are terrific! But it is that little orange caddis that is especially sexy.

Ooooh la la!

I still haven't risen a steelhead on that caddis but it gets absolutely crushed by every trout in the area every time I swing it.

Oo-la-la! I can see the wake and anticipate the crash. Superb tying.

My eye is drawn to that little caddis on the right as well. But as moethedog mentioned, everything looks good on those bugs.

What did you make your wings out of on the bottom right fly? Beautiful work.

Just a fantastic set of bugs there, sir! I'd love to see how you tie that top one.

I'll bet that little chubster on top would leave a wake you could water ski behind!
