Haven't tied much since work really picked up. Have a little show demo next weekend so I'm trying to fill out some display flies, short gutted...

Go BIG or go home!

You did an amazing job making this pattern fit this iron, just in general you do a great job elongating a pattern to fit the irons you prefer... Honestly this is one of my favorite rangers I've seen since I'm partial to the "long and low" speyish look of anything. Great job!

booyah, you hit it on the head bro, Im trying to find an iron that is this long 2-3x heavy with a 10/0 gap. this was just damn fun, Ive never tied this before and thought it was going to be very tough to top this beast, luckily i had 1 topping long enough,

That is an amazing piece of tying!!! I have a new appreciation for this fly, after recently tying one. Very, very beautiful fly!

It sure was a bit harder than I expected, the tippets were very hard to select at this length, its a 4/0 WM B&S +3/4" long shank, Ronn Lucas hook so even the top crest was hard to find at this length...

Fun stuff!
