Fun is an understatement! Every day I find a new one i want to tie! Luckily i've a pretty decent stock of materials so i can usually tie what i want when i want!
Addicted is an understatement!

Eunan, you get a really full throat on your wets; which looks great on these patterns. How about posting a SBS on how you do that?

Also, what are you using for hackle? Looks nice and soft.

The throat on the Page is a hen hackle wound full, then tied down. On the Thunder, its schlappen fibers stripped off the quill and tied in under the shank, and on the Ibis and White, they are stripped hen hackle tied under the shank.

So 3 different methods. I'll make SBS for each one and post it soon.
