    Default 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.

    Allerton


    Golden Pheasant

    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!
