hello friends

It may be one of the most effective, fool proof, easy to tie flies of all times but i do hate it.... nevertheless it is my best friend's favorite fly (how can he.....) so i decided to paint to to give it to him as a present, he is the one responsible for my introduction to fly fishing after all.

here it is, hope you like it; the version is the one i tie (when i have no other option) brass bullet head (i made them myself on the lathe) rubber legs and counter ribbing.



Cheers
Rob

Great artwork as usual!

I still love my Buggers...especially in white with pearl flash for lateral lines trapped under the ribbing.

Great stuff!

Rob, awesome.

Rob, that is awesome. Most impressive is how you can take a subject which you claim to loathe and put it into such great artistic perspective. You have talent on the vise and canvas! Thanks for sharing your gift. Ed

Thanks a lot for the kind words, friends :D

Ed, your comment is very welcome :) I guess the reason is because i enjoy doing things for my friends, i may not share the like for the same fly but i try to be a good friend and accept that he may like different things than i would like myself. :roll:

Maybe the reason behind my dislike for the WB is because it is wat too popukar here in my country, it is somethng like "the fly of the masses" lol and many people get stuck on this fly and they never try anything new or more challenging; it is a bit jard to express my feeling towards this fly. Nevertheless i always carry a couple of these in my box, i may not like them but i cannot deny their effectiveness :smokin:
