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.

Default Re: Halfbacks

I think I tied and used some of the Halfbacks many years (20?) ago. I belive there was also a Fullback which was similar but with the shellback over the whole body. It's not a pattern that has stuck in my fly box and I can't say that I remember much about it except the catchy name.

No offense intended. Naming flies is becoming a quagmire as almost everything has been tied before and almost every name has been used before. Anyway, like I said, I like yours better.

John, no offense to be taken. I called it that because that's what it was called when I found it. It did lead me to seeing another pattern I've never seen, which was cool.
