Classic Wet Flies
Decided to start a thread for these flies I'm tying. If anyone else is doing winged or classic wet flies, please feel free to add to it.

I'll start with two i tied last night, Allerton and Golden Pheasant.
Bit different from the previous flies I've tied in that the Allerton has a palmered hackle and the Golden Pheasant has a tippet wing.

I got a bit adventurous in tying these, but i think they came out well. Still a few things to iron out, tips and ribs, but generally i'm happy with these flies as they are for fishing.


Golden Pheasant

Re: Classic Wet Flies
wow...I watch these threads and am always impressed. First thought was "those are just too pretty to fish". Nice work!

Eunan: Very nice work, as Mike stated almost too pretty to fish!

Eunan, great flies as usual! I really like the Golden Pheasant though, think it could play the part of a baby brown, a perch, a whole lot. Oh and it looks great too!
