Ard, your flies are always superb IMO! A skilled tier, which you certainly are can tie anything! Truly inspiring!
I'll probably never get to fish in Alaska, but when I see flies like this, in my mind they become bass flies as well, particularly for stream or river bass! In the copper & brown, and the black & blue Intruders I see crayfish patterns! Awesome!
IMO, anyone who ties & doesn't expand their horizons is not taking full advantage of all the wonderful talent & learning opportunities that are available today!
Thanks for posting them!
