I only realised when i took the picture, that i missed half a wrap on body at the tail of the Holberton. Damn, I'm getting old - the eyes are starting to fail me, even without a beer to help!

P.S sorry about the pics, i really need to get a good camera. This cell phone ain't cutting it anymore

Few from tonight, two Jock Scott wet flies on size 8 hooks, and a Dolly Varden on a size 6.
The Jock Scotts are part of the set above, I had forgotten they were on the list to be tied until i checked the order this morning before i shipped it.
The Dolly Varden was just for fun and finished up a treat.

Dolly Varden - This is my best fly yet. Everything came together. Tip, smoothish body, 5 ribs, nice hackle, great wing setting and a small compact head!

Was tying fly orders again tonight (4 dozen laser eggs) but after they were done I got a bit selfish and tied an Irish Grouse wet fly from Bergmans book Trout.

Here she is.

Great question for which I have no answer. There is definitely no grouse on it.
