I thought that these flies looked great when I looked at the photos, earlier. Now I get home after teaching this evening, and these, and the flies from the Nymph Swap are in an envelope on my dining room table.

The flies look even better in persomn, but they look BEST in my fly boxes!!!!!

Some great patterns here! Thank you for the opportunity to participate!!!!

I'm not going to use mine as there are a lot of Variants of Patterns I haven't seen so eventually I will frame them all to keep for future reference as undoubably they will all work over here.

Mark I like your choice of a Vise,going by The Jaws & Chuck it looks like my Dyna King,even though I mainly use my Anvil,however if I tie Large Flies I use The Dyna King as the Jaws are heaps stronger & Beefier than The Anvil.

Just thought I'd add I once saw at a Fishing Show where a Guy held a #2 Hook in the Jaws of a Dyna King & twisted the hook backwards & fowards until he broke The Hook,then he continued to Tie Flies of all sizes with it.
