    Default Constantly amazed by this fly

    There are a lot of really impressive flies out there. In particular, a lot of people are extremely talented with deer hair and also with making very lifelike insect flies. The fly below is neither, but has always been my favorite. True art and creativity.

    You can cast anything you want with a 6wt (or any rod), its just a matter of how far you need to cast it.

    That is a beautiful rendition. It looks like it would be deadly on Amazon river fish like the "Leather-lipped Riposnortimus". Are those beauties sold by the fly, or by the pound ? I think they would turn over nicely on a 12 12wt, sometimes called a 12 x 12, or a "gross" rod.
    I'm sure it took a lot of effort to produce that work of art. Thanks for sharing the picture and the smile

    Nick, that's pretty cool! Reminds me of some of Pat Cohen's flies. He ties some awesome fishing flies, and his art is even more awesome.

    Dear lord, could catch a monster of a bass on that thing. Although, I think if I bought one it would go in a case and on a shelf or in a frame and on the wall. Too beautiful to use!

    Jeez, those are crazy. Wonder what the average tie time is?

    Those flies are so beautiful it would be hard to actually use one, I'd frame them and hang them on a wall.

    Same here. I don't think I'd ever let it touch the water.

    Pat Cohen is an amazing tyer! As is his art and tattoos . I think I would frame his work as well , would feel bad if a fish chewed that up! Maybe not .
