When I received my dunt from Mr. Reid he also sent me some irons, this is the first tied with those... I hope it's up to par! It's a simple pattern but I have always been drawn to it... looking back some taper in the hackle would have looked better and a bit more full in the collar, I opted for no topping as it really changed the overall look (for the negative) when I put one on. Any comments or critiques are appreciated.

THANK YOU JAMES!!

Thanks for all the kind words guys! It is really encouraging to get this type of feedback from you all! I hope this flies next owner will feel it's good enough to tie on their tippet!

The way that amazing wing nestles into the gentle sweep of the tail is quite splendid. I need to attend a tying with you and Matt while it's raining so much!

I could catch the elevator on the learning curve!

First off I'm honored that my flies would motivate you to try classics and secondly I would be happy to show the little bit that I know! I'm sure we will be tying while the rivers are blown, if not you are very welcome to make the trip out to my place too! Thanks Bob!

Wow Josh!

this fly is awesome! The wing is really nice, you did a great job of dressing this hook too.

I am happy that you dig the hooks brother, I will be interested to see what you tie on the 1/0 long shanks when you get around to dressing one.

Cheers.
James

I have been thinking a lot about what to put on those irons James, I am currently getting my ass beat by the floodtide but I assume the razor will win that one tonight and I will wrap some Dees to unwind! Thanks again man!
