Messing around with the wire again
 
Last nights fly tying class was a load of fun, I decided we would do wire bodied streamers.
Hopefully we will be trying them out next week

Laurie: Awesome looking streamers! Those patterns sure are inspiring, I've been doing some dries lately, that makes me want to try some wire bodied streamers.

Laurie your ties are always amazing, thanks for posting. Are those woven bodied flies?

Yes
The bodies are woven wire, one of my students went out today and caught 11rainbows on them, now to tie up more for the shop

I bet they dive deep which is so important on the cusp of winter! Nice proportions and colors - like the guinea fowl dyed blue and the dyed badgers......

Inspiring as always!
