That is a great rendition of the Black Dog ... nicely done lad !!
I like the blue guinea collar and the sides of wood duck :smokin:
Beauty contrast in the wing and you found a nice flow with the profile ... sweet !!

Really nice to see your work again :)

Nice man,

May i recommend a slight shaping of that topping you choose? One can get quite the affect by simply modifying that topping to fit the hook and wing shape a bit better.

Great fly though, really sparkles.

Nice warm up Chase. Been following this over at the other place and this should be good. Cheers
You on "that other place?"

Thanks guys...the razor is now dull and I can move ahead with your recommendations...4/0 blinds have landed so instead of screwing with the #2 I can now get that canary tied on...

I had forgotten that the sudden desire to open a vein is directly proportionate to the inability (by average tiers like myself) to marry amherst to goose...

I'd rather perform a vasectomy on myself than to try to marry amherst to anything!!! I think some of these guys are using super glue or something.

Great fly you tied however!

Before you take a razor to a beauty like that, (the fly, that is), put it away for a bit, then view it. Sometimes they don't look too bad after a little resting period away from what you first wanted to see!

Your jumping the gun a little. He's talking Amherst, not golden. Compared to golden, Amherst is an ideal material.

But thanks for the reminder, I need to track down some amgold.
