I've been enjoying the woven techniques. Not my best flies as I'm still practicing this technique. It's pretty cool and fun though!

I love taking pics and looking at the flies closely even though I notice all of the mistakes.

My hotspots/dubbing balls were a big fail this time :D :D
In the 3rd pic you can see I did a bad job on the transition from dubbing ball to woven thread, it's as not nice and smooth of a transition as I would like.








Antenna/Tail: Biots
Body/Abdomen: Woven hobby thread
Thorax: Random yellowish dubbing
Wing case: Medallion sheeting
