Merry Christmas to my Mom :p

A Childers variation tied on a size 6 salmon iron
Mostly Kelson, some liberties taken to give it a full look since it will be earings seen from any angle.
Fun to tie such a small fly

I was waiting to see a selfie with a giant iron sticking through your ear from a windy cast! I like this picture much better. Oh and the pattern is cool, looks like a killer!

Nice one Matt. Got a raise from me!

Nice idea for a gift.
I rarely tie two a-like. But for this one - Are you tying the other?

Yes! to me that is the challenge here, to tie 2 matching flies. the second is in the vice. and either the point will be filed or a bead glued onto it.

The bead idea has worked for me. Classic touch, she should love them.

the finished set, not mirrors, but I'm happy with such small work. I'll bet they make a grown woman cry...

Many years back now.

Did just exactly that for my lady staff members. They looked totally cool at the Company Christmas Party.
