    Nice Allen, is that dyed turkey on #1? I'm tying 3 - 4" flesh flies for Thursday - Saturday so I'm off of the pretty stuff for awhile. The trout looks familiar to me

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I really like the second one; that mixed wing looks great against the tippet wing. Nice tying!

    Did you take that trout with a Salmon fly; I can't quite make out what's in its mouth?

    It's a small steelhead caught a long, long way from the ocean and a vertical mile in elevation. It probably entered fresh water in July of August and it was caught the end of February so It had a lot of time to color up. I don't usually fish for steelhead in the spring but that river had an Ice Dam that broke out a couple days earlier and the fish were still migrating, not in spawning mode yet. It was caught on the third fly. A general practitioner.
    The front wing on the GP is a little long, but it will still work

    And a Couple more. It snowed a for a minute today and I figured the river's are getting cold so I tied these on Alec Jackson 1.5 heavy wire hooks to give a little bigger profile and get a little deeper.
    Hope you like them
