I am humbled, fellas... thanks for the encouraging comments.
I am partial to the top fly too... traditional tag from oval silver tinsel, a tail of GP crest, rear half of the body is flat tinsel, then quarter segments of gold then red dyed PB under fur. Both hackle and wing are from the reddish tinted golden pheasant flanks, with a wisp of a collar from pintail flank dyed blue, then the JC eyes. Nothing exotic - hoping it fishes well!
