very nice!

what hook are you using there? and is it my eyes or are you using a similar colored piece of material to form a wing case/carapace on the body or is just the ribbing?

Nice flies. Looks like they are taking a bow! I enjoy tying and fishing stones.

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.

OK, first great looking flies!

I'm not trying to offend anyone, but I've never been a fan of biots. I know they're popular for patterns like this, but I've never liked them. IMO, they're lifeless. I would much prefer to add rubber or silicone leg material or some other material that contributes some motion to a fly in place of biots. Anyone else have this same opinion or attitude towards biots, or am I alone?

The way it works with me is, if it work, then it does not need to be tweaked.

Some of my patterns work better with biots then rubber legs, not sure why but the fish make the final decision LOL

I do use rubber legs alot though

Flies (and lures) always need to be tweaked, but that's a whole different issue! I'm forever tinkering!

Those are my kind of flies! Very nice indeed!

It's a psychological thing with me I know! A bit of a mental block I have about biots. I know that flies tied with them work, but I like that added motion. The ideal nymph IMO is buggy & moves!

I've posted this fly before. It's my big stonefly nymph pattern. I tie it on a size 2 hook and primarily use it for stream SM bass, but I have tied it smaller in the past & had success catching trout with it. The pattern recipe is on my blog.
