Re: some Uk patterns of mine
Those are great looking flies! The first two look like glass beads? The caenis is particularily interesting. Would you mind giving a list of materials and a bit of tying info? It looks like a split wing pattern? Thanks very much for sharing I look forward to more!

Re: some Uk patterns of mine
the caenis pattern tying is :-

HOOK SIZE 16 kamasan b 175
tail is 3 fibres of white hen
body is white floss thread
thorax is peacock herl
and hackle is white cock hackle.

tie in tail and build body up half way and tie in peacock herl doubled.tie off white thread replace with 8/0 black thread and tie in white cock and then bring herl over splitting the hackle and whip finish.
It took me 3 weeks of watching the natural to get the pattern right and is a perfect reproduction of the natural.
glad you like them
the beads by the way are rainbow bead.

Nice flies, Kevin. I particularly like the Hare's Ear CDC.
