I'll say this...the only positive of this lousy winter (aside from a healthy amount of water for our beloved streams in the Spring) is it gave me time to finally learn how to upload a photo.

Looks good! I am busy saving up for fly tying materials and a Renzetti Traveller so I can keep myself busy as well

Are you using quills or biots on those bodies, or is that a thread wrap for the segmentation.

This is some good looking stuff

Thanks guys for the comments.... believe it or not I use thread wraps for my segmentation and in particular "Clarks & Coats polyester thread" available in walmart and most craft stores.....$20 gets you a lifetime supply in more colors than you can imagine. As I posted on another forum - I was once physically showing my rusty spinners to 2 flyshop workers who could not believe it was not a biot body....prompting to one to say 'how the F--- is that not biot"...which I accepted as a compliment Here are a couple recent ones I added under "what are you tying".....
