Two important facts for my fellow tiers:

1. Puppies CAN NOT digest bucktail
2. Leaving out a bright red bucktail will cause your wife/girlfriend to run to the vets office in a complete state of panic with the whole "specimen" in a ziplock bag. (I'm in a bit of trouble)

2/0 Green Highlander

Started this at about 3pm today, completed the body up to the throat, stopped for dinner, messed around a while, built the wing, then had it finished about 10pm.

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.

Shad darts, lots of them. Not sure where the sixth pink one went but the thread was already away so too bad. You know that's the color I'll come up short by one the next time out.
