Default My first Aykroyd

With the help from a mentor I tied my first dee fly which I am very proud of, the guy who helped me through it is very impressed at how I did. I am still kickin my own butt as I had the eyes set PERFECT but i dropped the damn thing and they moved, I was not happy.
So here it is, my white winged aykroyd

Damn.... you guys keep posting these BEAUTIFUL flys, and I'm sitting here impatiently "reading-up" on fly tying, and waiting for my first fly-tying class, on January 17!

Got a $25 LL Bean gift card in the office "Secret Santa" gift exchange yesterday (likely from someone who stuck their head in the door and saw me practicing my nail knot), so that'll at least buy a pair of scissors or two.

Anyway, very nice work Latshki! Thank you for sharing!

You have done a beautiful job with that Layton,

They do catch fish, I used one for just an afternoon last July. Although I had made three and clipped them in my box a couple years ago I just carried them around for all that time. I tied one on because I thought that if I showed something different I might get one to grab it. It worked but only on one fish, don't sweat the angle of the eyes too much, mine were not picture perfect but the fly beached a salmon for me.

That fly looks great! As far as the eyes shifting, just fish that one and the next one can be the display piece Which upon further inspection is basically just what Ard said, haha.
