Beautiful fly and tied well!

Just started working on the same project last night late but did not finish. Thanks now I have something to go off of.

Thanks for sharing.

Another wonderful tie from the Salmon River master! Well done, Paul!!

What method did you use on the doubled BM? The wing set looks great.

Nice.

One thing that would make a very large difference in the look of the fly is make the gap between the throat hackle and head windings nearly non-existent. I know you can't make it totally go away, but it can be make to be no more than a wrap or 2 of thread.

Thanks everyone!
Bill: the method I used to attach the doubled bronze mallard wings was by watching one of Davie McPhail's excellent YouTube videos. Before watching his videos I struggled with the wings trying to put one on at a time and reversing the thread, etc. But he puts the wings on 1 pair at a time very casually, just lining up the tips, without making a big deal out it. For the fishing grade flies that I tie it really helped me a lot :)
