Stuart P., those are pure eye candy. Even if they never caught a fish I would like to be able to tie them just to look at them. Nice.
Great photography also.
On that first leggy half-hogs, do you have some dyed hair mixed in the wing?

Thanks Jackster.

No there's no added hair, but the seal's fur is tied in three sections. First for the butt up to the first wing, then the second in between the two deer hair wings, (this one is tied in a bit looser), then the third around the head section. So I think it's the looser middle section that gives the impression of added hair in the thorax area.

Those are real nice Very life like and full of movement. Colors with those crazy legs makes for a nice buggy signature.

Took a stab at an extended body Green Drake. I need to slim the abdomen down some and not set the hook so deep into the body next time but I think it'll still fish well enough.

Again Mr. Bash, looks like you're headed to Penn's, say about May-ish. Second one looks like it hit Weight Watchers compared to the first. Can you get it a little thinner? Great looking ties BWT.

Stuart--your ties are amazing man!
