May Fly Variations: mixing flash with natural.
 
Hey folks
Thought I would try some dry flies. Kinda just experiments, no real pattern, just mixing things up and seeing what I came up with. I really like the polar flash micro filaments stuff. Makes nice floss and tinsel to add a touch of flash here and there. Sorry for the crappy photo skills Haven't tied dries in a while.:D

Looks like you haven't lost your touch with dries! They look good to me.

What type of hook are you using; I kind of like the downward abdomen/tail.

Take me back to a place where I could fish a #8 dry fly!

I've been in #14-#20 land for too long..............

I like the stimi hooks on those flies.

I dig it man, it might be the added touch that gets a take when all else gets ignored.
