    Hi Everyone,

    Ard is right, this is an exceptional tye. I could never get those nice small heads. Well to be honest I could never come close to this quality.

    Trygve, wonderful wing on your Caddis.

    Frank

    Wow! Really nice flies guys. What size hook is the Canadian killer on Hardyreels? jbbfly, that fly there is really awsome. A bit out of my skill range. I have been working to get there. Check back with me in a decade or so.

    Nice Jean Paul, I'm a little concerned that you found those materials in your drawers. (Here in the States that is what they used to call your underwear) Smiling

    Dan,

    The hook is a #2 Partridge, there is a better example on the Share Patter forum. Check out the Dr. Mummy too, sounds kinda like Halloween.................Mummy?

    Ard you would find nice materials to tie salmon flies in the "Folies Bergeres" or Moulin Rouge" dancers' drawersLast week a man was arrested in the little town near home....he had stolen 300 ladies' underwear in gardens of the area
    Thanks for helping me to name this fly:it's a Halloween....Grand...Mummy

    Here's another version of Anderson's Bird of Prey called the Crosswire Bird of Prey - October Caddis.

    That Gadwall wing and the curved body gives it a menacing look.
