Default The Denizen; from Bergman's TROUT

It has been 25 years since I tied a married wing salmon fly. Back when I lived in the Mid Atlantic states and was in striking distance of Atlantic salmon I tied hundreds. Trying to tie this wet fly has reminded me of why I like Pacific salmon hair wing flies. I am going to tie some of my original patterns such as the Double Dare, Alaska Claret Queen and others as classic feather winged salmon flies. This was my first attempt at regaining the touch. Were it not for that errant strand of tying silk behind the head I would say it was a fair start.

This pattern comes from the book, TROUT by Ray Bergman. I have not done justice to it but thought to post it and follow my progression as I work at regaining my craft skills.

The Denizen;

Even if you are critical of it, I think it is a beautiful pattern. Never noticed the errant strand until you mentioned it.
Great idea, to post your progression, it gives some of us who also try this style of tying, some hope as well. Thanks for sharing.....Kerry
