Default Re: Between the salmon tie-along and S. fonti....

Hi Hugh,

Your tying is coming along, the fly is reminiscent of a Ranger type but not (as I can see) a married wing tie. Your heads are becoming neater but you may want to put that tag up the shank a tad. Try having the tag end directly above the barb tip and I think the flies will look a bit better. However, you have my word that a fly with the tag positioned a little far back will catch salmon, trout, and char. All this business of proportioning and positioning are aesthetics to suit the human eye not that of a fish. To fish I believe color - size and profile are the points of interest.

Nice,

Ard
