Very nice. I've never seen the Floodtide with bustard or amhearst between the red and yellow like you did. The red and yellow have always butted up to each other in the ones I've seen. Your's looks great. Only thing I notice is the wing curve not matching the topping curve.

Thanks again fellas.

Bradyb - The old masters tyed formed their wings like you mentioned, with solid bars. Doing it like I did gives an alternative look to the fly, which i like, but not all flies sui thise style of wing.

In terms of the topping, its common practice to have a nice cascade of the fibers like I have here. Its purely an aesthetic feature - when the flies get wet, they will collapse, and pulsate in the water.
Having the topping follow the wing shape for the full length of the wing kinda give a flat look to the fly, which again, works for some flies, but mostly you'll see folks tie them with the cascade. I'd have liked the tail to cascade too, but i didnt wanna mess with it as you can break them when all is done, runing the fly.
