That is a very nice tie Bill !!
I know you tied it for trout , but I wouldn't hesitate to tie it on for finicky salar either ... or steelhead for that matter .
I'd say you have mastered the in-hand tying Bill .
To tie that small and neat .... :smokin:
Geez that is on juicy little fly...really good thread work in hand, Bill. I'm looking forward to more flies from you. I can see this one as a comeback pattern to that fish that broke the surface chasing after 4 surface flies but just won't commit. A deal closer.
Wow, thanks gent's! It's still such a humbling experience to have the masters of the this forum give such kind comments on my ties.
Big thanks to Mike, Adrian, and Tim for the encouragement, and inspiration in all your ties!!
Wayne- I'm guessing this would look great on a wee little double, see what you can do, brother!
KC- I've got so many soft-hackle, north-country spider kind of flies tied up, my great-great-grand children won't even have to think of tying any! Easily, the most effective trout fly I've ever fished!!
