Nothing special just a fluoresent pink jig with various "body" materials. It works is all that matters to me.

So many, but these two are good enough for this post.

Decided to place some material on this Mustad hook.

I haven't "Invented" any flies, but I have tweaked some established flies quite a bit.

You have become a terrific tier of streamers! Nice stuff :)

I could let it go at saying Gary & Kelly along with the others have put up great home ties but I can't resist............. I have an advantage in that I am able to find fish who will take whatever I would make and cast at them. I have however came up with a few flies (probably more than a few :D) that have done really well for me. I have not seen similar ties elesewhere and all the color and materials concepts were of my own doing.

The Bush Doctor;

Ard's Nine Three Spey Dress;

Alaskan Lady;

Red Head, the ladies sister fly.........

The Char Fin;

I could go on at length because at times my tying is prolific but I will spare you the rest. All of the flies pictured have caught fish; some are better for salmon while others seem to appeal to trout / steelhead, and char. Of the lot I must say that the Ard's Nine Three holds the record for all species ;)
