Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Bob: That new wing material looks interesting and should show a nice side profile in the water. What is it?

Norm, can you post recipes for these? The one looks like an Edson Light Tiger, with white hackle as the only difference, is that right? I looked up Queen of the Water, and found some that look different. I believe your flies came from Forgotten Flies, is that right? All 3 are beautiful flies, love them.

I think that wing is ostrich herl. I bought one with ostrich herl, that is a duster. Much cheaper than buying ostrich herl on the net, that is for sure.
