Default when I grow up....meet the hendriksons part 2

OK...here is our little friend when he grows up...ready to take flight into the world...I used the same body and tail as in the nymph...I did tie a few less segments...boy are they a pain...you have to be careful not to cinch the closing knot too hard...I snipped one off!

I used the same dyed mllard flank for the wings... I dyed some with an alcohol based stain from a waterfowling harvest...seems to work fine even after getting wet...I also added a rooster hackle sort of brownish for the finish...

and I did pitch it some too...floats nicely...stood erect a few times so perfect!!...talk about a proud Dad...LOL...

the 6 foot 4 weight was a good call...super soft presentation...

all the best...ted

Of what I can see it looks nice but the background sorta hides the fly

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

Thanks Mr Flytyer...maybe dont look at anything but the fly...its pretty simple...just a basic dry fly pattern...the hackle could be a bit shorter...but its what I have...it will catch fish...I don't mean to be smart...but I get sick of the" in the vise" photos...

Ted: Nice work, congrats! I know what you mean the "in the vise" photos get a little old after awhile so seeing something a little different is refreshing.
