in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Looks good to me. The wings get even the best of them. Keep at it.

Nice one, it just takes a lot of practice and sometimes it still doesn't come out the way you want, but it will still fish, cameron

Nice!...
keep at it!

I think you might find it easier to tie that style of fly on a different hook? maybe on an AJ or Blue Heron?

I like the colour composition a lot and I like the hackle density ... Very nice contrast happening in the collar
This fly will hunt with no doubt.

Thanks dude! In regards to hooks, I’d love to try the aforementioned ones you listed! Send them my way 😉

Thanks for always being an encouragement Mike! I love tying this style, very enjoyable. A friend recommended spinning Amherst in a loop and winding as a hackle.
