Copper and Orange freestyle

Hi all, hope you are all well, here is a freestyle i did yesterday, didn't know where i was going but this is where i ended up, broke the copper embossed tinsel mid body, was able to recover ok, and the heron stem was a little thick, but was the shortest barb length i had and didn't want to use BEP, wanted to stay with the color scheme, hope you like, and stay safe, Cameron

Awesome combination of colour
I really like how you incorporated the tippets as an aft collar hackle, really sweet fly !!

Yes! Man...that is aching for a steelhead. I agree with Mike. The tippet fibers are a great touch...reminiscent of Dahlquist pattern but I like you use of tippet fibers even more.

You tied a very nice fly that reminds me of Dec's Mahoney. I like the slim profile you tied with the copper twist and the tippet fibers.
