Here is one I tied up last night. I feel like I’m getting a little bit better. I still totally struggle with wings, and need to get some decent wing material. But having fun playing with colors! Tied on a 1.5 AJ bronze hook, because that’s the only one I have that big.

thanks for looking

I am certainly not qualified to judge whether it qualifies as akroyd or not but it's certainly tug worthy. Very nice!.

Cool color choices! I don't know about one wing material being "better" than another, its personal preference and what suits the fly IMO unless you're trying to closely reproduce a certain pattern. I think your wing choice suits the fly perfectly! Nice tie!

A good combination of colors and materials always makes a good finished fly. Good job, Bob, I like your distance of the head from the upturned eye. It makes an easy turle knot without crowding the head and collar.

This fly will look great being cast with your new rod from Duggan.
