That's a good pattern, I tie that in a size 6 for Salmonfly season and a size 12 for stonefly season.

Tied 4 pink squirrels, 8 san juan worms, and tried out making my first comparadun, and I think I will get better with more practice. I thought the wing was very sparse.

Thanks for the tip. I've not done that before. I'm still learning all of the wonders of Tapatalk (as well as using the Forum site itself -- wondering if they're tied at all -- i.e., if "Mark Forum Read" translates to Tapatalk's status). I also have to figure out how to take a macro photo with my phone.

Too much learning for this old man!

Gary

Thanks, Larry.

What I'm "learning" is that certain materials seem to tie better the smaller the fly. On the other hand, my fingers don't work as nimbly on the smaller flies. Such is life.

Is the dark hair bear, perhaps Ard ? Looks to be.

I'd PM but then it would look like I never answered......... Dyed Arctic Fox over deer tail. I think I put the tying recipe on the thread in Spey forums here.

Yep, post #3 on the Sunray thread

No pics, but ive spent the last month cranking out steely flies. Goin to the salmon river next week and wanted to be prepared. I tied somewhere around 450 flies. Sucker spawn, buggers, fleas, eggs of every kind and color, leeches, stones, pt nymph, egg sucking everything, lol. Ive been busy.

I still need to get ready for the thaw here though. I'll probably start with the small general stuff and work my way up.
