    I wouldn't say there's anything amateur about those flies. Good looking ties if you ask me.

    I just tied this to give to my niece Caitlin. I'm going to frame it for her. She does nice stuff for people all the time so I thought I'd give her something I made. This is an old pattern originated by Mike Martinek. I am going to fix the drooping hackle in the wing when I frame it so it lines up better with the long Jungle Cock. I got the Jungle Cock in the cheek a tad pointed up, but I can live with that. I had to dye about half the stuff in this fly. Some of it took several attempts to get a close enough color. I did it all with Kool Aid. Any way I posted it in share patterns and copied what I did there and am pasting it here:

    Nice fly, Dan!

    I like the use of the JC nail wing and shoulder. Colors work very well togther.

    You should tie up another one and give it a try on some bigger trout.

    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
