cool fly. seems pretty maried the wing though, also try using spit instead of stripping tippets. if you want mix tippets they should be of rachis so they dont look so even.

nice one.

The wing could be a bit longer or fuller or both.

solid effort
Agreed, longer and fuller for sure

Thanks Kevin, didnt know if I should use the tippet whole or just the fibers, will have another go at one tonight.
