Not sure where I left the comment Eunan but will say again, you are still improving! I see every pattern you show as being a little better, if you continue the sky's the limit I would guess. I think the wings and body proportions are becoming more & more refined as I view the flies.

They are amazing looking! I have to ask start to finish how long does it take you to tie up one of these beauties?

I never tie one start to finish in one sitting, so its kinda hard to tell. Rough estimate, if all goes to plan and i dont redo any parts, 3-4 hours per fly, regardless whether its in the vise or in hand.

As is the case with any of your flies I've viewed Eunan, absolute masterpieces. I guess my eye isn't quite as refined as others but I certainly understand refinement. I've always thought your flies are exceptionally well done, thanks for sharing.

You are truly an artist. As I work on my hair-wings I hope one day they will be as good looking as your classics.
