Nothing special just a fluoresent pink jig with various "body" materials. It works is all that matters to me.

I haven't "Invented" any flies, but I have tweaked some established flies quite a bit.

Kelly,

You have become a terrific tier of streamers! Nice stuff :)

I could let it go at saying Gary & Kelly along with the others have put up great home ties but I can't resist............. I have an advantage in that I am able to find fish who will take whatever I would make and cast at them. I have however came up with a few flies (probably more than a few :D) that have done really well for me. I have not seen similar ties elesewhere and all the color and materials concepts were of my own doing.

The Bush Doctor;

Ard's Nine Three Spey Dress;

Red Head, the ladies sister fly.........

The Char Fin;

I could go on at length because at times my tying is prolific but I will spare you the rest. All of the flies pictured have caught fish; some are better for salmon while others seem to appeal to trout / steelhead, and char. Of the lot I must say that the Ard's Nine Three holds the record for all species ;)
