I fish blondes a lot, but they don't look that good

Hi Kelly,

I know you struggled with some of the flies in the Salmon Tie Along but I think that practice has made you a much better tier. It seems to me your tying has really improved this year. Am I just full of it or do you agree?

Frank

Guys, thank you. I think these would make great Salmon flies. After I read that note, I thought, I think the Salmon tie along helped me overall in my tying, and bam...then I read Frank's post. It gave me more attention to detail, and an eye for what looks right. I am side tracked at the moment on bucktail streamers, but I am going back to tie some more Salmon and Spey flies. :-)

I think this is my best fly of the longer version of bucktail. This is the look I imagined would look the best, and hopefully fish the best. This is a 2/0 Daiichi 2441 hook.

Kelkay: Good looking flies; You (or anyone else) want to tell me what you use on the heads? I've never graduated from my clear jars of fly head cement. I wouldn't mind having the clean finish like these flies do. Anyone got a product to recommend?
