Today is my lovely wife's birthday. I started this fly yesterday and finished it this morning while she was getting a bit of work done. She loves her rainbows, but then again, who doesn't.

Megan's Fly:


Tied on a size 1.5 AJ heavy bronze.

My dad used to make flies like that for my mom to wear on her jacket lapels. Of course, he's afix a pin to the back, and cut off the hook portion (filing the end smooth).

Beautiful tie Matt! You're a very gifted artist!

So hear you.

You've been able to buy large hooks with the pins for many years now and a hand tied fly (lots of colour) made a great small Christmas Gift for my 'female' staff. Bit limited on the choice of ties as they were going into a Xmas Card. Ear rings were also darned popular.

On the ear ring thing I found the 'hang from the ear lob hole' (or what the hell ever you call those things) in a light gold plate and made ' Christmas Wreaths' out of the thing. Those got me a hell of a lot of Thank You-Thank You-Thank You's!' Not something you could start in December; "vice" was working in July.

I had a lot of ladies who worked in my 'chain.' Actually, come to think of it, they were all women!

To me any fly is better with a good reason (or better yet a good woman) behind it, this one is stellar regardless though. As said above those colors are so vivid and just scream.

One of these days your going to have to show me how you get those amazing heads!
