I thought it would be cool to shoot this on a mirror, too hard to get clean.

Would a polarizing lens help? You might only get a single reflection then

Nice idea though, and great looking fly.

I don't have a polarizing lens and I don't know if it will help, but it is definitely worth looking into Thanks!

Very nice fly, what's the dressing? if you are shooting with a DSLR, you just need a polarizing filter on the lens

Rumor at the fly show was Stripers are still in the surf. I don't like spreading rumors so I'll have to investigate on Wed with these two.

Those look good swirl, Report back to us.

I have done little tying recently... well none actually. Need to get started on my dry fly swap flies.

I guess I did go pick up a few things and try the barely legal mentioned in an earlier thread. It worked out well. I should probably have a few in my box.
