What kind of guy would I be if I only posted pictures of the ties that come out perfect? This is an example of what happens when you use heavy metal tinsel when you should use medium.

Notice the uneven body wrap;

Can you name this pattern?Attachment 1526

Come on, take a shot at it............ hint, the blue is a tad too light.

Prize will be a rep point to the first correct answer!

Can you show us a bigger picture

Is it a LAxa Blue

The trick to make a good shaped head of the fly is to trim the topping short close to the thread as possible and dont put more than 2 turn per topping and Use 8/0 if possible

click the pic it gets bigger. I see what you are talking about but to me thats still not a bad looking fly really in my opinion. I have made alot worse! all I really notice on your fly is the underside of the body is not perfectly smooth. I am not a salmon fly person myself so I can't name it

"Supervisor". Closest fly in my book. I feel like a cheater but I don't think that it's the one.

man thats not a bad looking fly at all, it may not be perfect, but i've bought flies that didnt look that good. Besides as long as balance is right and it isnt all jacked up looking it'll catch fish.
