Just started experimenting with some Amherst tails (which had been kicking around for some time) as 'accents' - awesome feathers!!

Hope you like ;)

All the very best for the ongoing festive period

Well done.

Thanks for the kind comments, guys! ;)

I've not seen a "torch flame" fly - can anyone post a link, recipe or picture? - sounds interesting!

Fishy looking fly. I would love to see a recipe and step by step photos.

I'm usually not a big fan of tubes tied in the round but I'll copycat those

Recipe & SBS can be sort-of viewed here:

you just have to eliminate the tying of the posts and the body of the "un-'truder", and essentially you have the U-tube!! :)

Super wicked! Fully dig the colors and the awesome heads on you nasty u-tubes! Great work. They also remind me of torch flames, as in a real propane blow torch.... Keep on keepin on.

Mike -- I was referring to an actual flame, not a fly.
