Can anyone help me identify what exactly this is, and/or how you're suppose to fish it? I received it as a gift, in one of those monthly box deals. It was a long time ago, and I've since lost the packaging that explained it. I was going through some older gear and uncovered it. Thanks for your help!

Good Lord! The vast majority of these really are "above and beyond" what most of us would otherwise think possible, or even required, especially the emerger/hellgramite/damsel nymphs.

Congratulations- if you're selling, I'm buying! Any soft hackles?

Thank you so much for the kind words, I appreciate it! As of right now I have just sold fishing flies to some friends locally, but the artsy ones no. I honestly don't know what I would even charge for them, I have never timed myself and I like taking my time on them. I've contemplated the idea of opening it up to online orders because of the requests, but I just dont think I have the extra capacity in life and I'm afraid it will turn into a job if that makes sense.

I have a few soft hackle patterns I like, should be a couple in this thread. Did you have one in mind? I'm always looking for new ones to try!

Smaller Midge dry fly these are 18's.

That's cool and shows alot of talent. But how long does that take you?
I did a few of them over the course of a evening so maybe 45-60mins. I usually create the components first such as the legs then I start actually tying the flies so my materials are all ready to go. I just enjoy challenging myself and trying to create what I have in mind. I'm often making things up as I go, so I try different things like prototypes before Im happy with the recipe then I'll go for a "good one".

I'll save the best one for a special box then the rest go to the fish.
