In the last couple months I have had a few friends ask me if I have quit tying flies. I have not quit tying but I have not been tying as much. to tell the truth, when I do sit down to the vice I am Just as likely to tie a fly for tiger musky as I am to tie this stuff. Anyway, here are a couple flies I have tied the last little while.

Brilliant tying. I think you answered your friends' concerns adequately!

What is the tag feather on the last fly? It looks like a quail crest feather but it's kind of big (or the hook is really small). That tie is stunning to say the least.

Middlecalf - Having shot a boxcar full of quail in my day, I'm quite sure you nailed the tail on that last stunner!

Allen - you are indeed a gifted tier. You and your vise crank out some beautiful works of art. I'd be loathe to tie one of those beauties on and fish it, but I know that's what they're for.

thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Hi Allen,

You don't appear to be out of shape with tying, all are beauties. I have wondered that I saw not posts from you but then I haven't tied a fly for months myself so.......... I must start very soon but don't see anything like you've shown us coming off my vise.

Nice,

Ard

Great to see your talent here again, Allen!

Even better is that I have a few of your beauties in my collection.

I'm glad you posted something, by the way- it reminded me that I never got those hooks out to you!

Great job on all these ties, my friend,

-Bill

Allen.

All I can muster to say is wow! These are all tied so beautifully, Thankyou for sharing these flies with us. I love them all. But this little honey is pretty special. If I saw that fly in friends box.... I would be inclined to liberate her for my own purposes!

Awesome.

James

Thanks everyone.
The wood carved fly box was made by mitchaka2fish and the tail on that last fly is quail. That hook is an AJ 1.5

real nice. really. btw what is that box? my uncle is a wood worker and made me some fly boxes with the same hinges and used foam inside. if you made your own, where did your find the metal clips?

Thanks,
Andrew
