I'm new around here and just stumbled on to this section. I'm very happy I did. That first fly is absolutely amazing. I took a class several years ago on tying classic wet fly patterns. Married wings gave me the fits.
I can only imagine the skill involved in tying that pattern you posted. Any chance I might be able to buy it from you for display purposes?
At any rate, please keep posting your work. Your new biggest fan!
Thanks for the comments George. Much appreciated
The first fly in this thread is already in the hands of a collector. It was a special commission, but can certainly be tied again if you are interested in it.
I have quite a few other threads on here displaying some classic flies.
Two you might like most are "classic salmon flies" and "classic wet flies"
will bring you to all the threads i've started on the forum.
peruse them at your leisure, flies are posted in the 'general fly tying discussions'
