These flies really cry out for being tied on 6xl-8xl streamer hooks, not salmon irons. Salmon irons aren't long enough in the shank to do a streamer justice, and make them look truncated instead of long, slim, and slick.

Thanks guys, I will try these on streamer hooks too but I like the upturned eye. These are version one and I will see how they swim and if I can hook a few. I had some design ideas for some places I fish and certainly I don`t consider these flies done more like prototype 1 :)

I have high hopes for them.

Good to see you here buddy,

If you hang around here you'll become a better tier just by association. The fellows who post the really killer stuff (that's everyone) will share technique with you if you ask. Your flies will work for you all you have to do is fish them.
