Killer Style flies using Black Franklin
 
I have gotten on another kick tying Killer Style flies. I wanted to try some Black Francolin feathers out, and see what they looked like in this style.

The fly with the JC nail on top is a different kind of look Kelly, nice work on these.

Thanks Ard, here is another one. I made this one a couple of days ago.

My favorite though, is Kelly's Killer by far.

Kelly,

The Kelly's Killer and Mrs. Simpson double eye variation look like great flies to me; nice patterns and great ties.

I recall that Chris (ChrisinselwynNZ) posted on tying killer style patterns about a year and a half ago. I think that they look great and they definitely have a "fishy" shape to them.

Let us know what you catch on them.

Superb flies! Kelkay, I've been around several forums over the past few years that you've posted your work on, and I have to say that I've always admired & enjoyed seeing the flies that you've tied! Always Superb Tying! :thumbsup:
