1st dry fly!
hey I made my 1st dry fly. it was using brown hackle. it came out with the hackle too long and I think the hackle is not as stiff as the 2 keouth capes I got with it. it sank! I figured that lol. well then I went to the keouth and used black. I made a midge pattern and it came out way better! it floats! but not the best. I think my thread is the problem. I used 210 danville. I need some 6/0 asap! here is the pix of both flys. what ya think? I didn't make any wings because I followed the basic dry fly pattern on fly anglers online. well here r those pix! the 1st and last r the midge and the middle is the 1st brown one I did.
