Re: Two flies my 5-year-old designed!

I'm amazed at how much my kids like helping their papa with fly tying. Going to have to get them a Tenkara rod.

Re: Two flies my 5-year-old designed!

The peacock herl/blue wire/pink one is "scatter fly" and the soft hackle, "lion fly". Not much for imitators but have potential as prospectors!
