    That's a beautiful tie, FlySlinger! Is the body biot? The dark barring on the body goes well with the barring on the hackle, looks very buggy!

    Nice looking Catskill tye there, Fly Slinger!

    Nothing rusty about that one in my book; wings look even, as does the hackle, body is smooth and segmented, tail looks right to keep it upright in the water, etc., etc.

    Bring on some more................

    Well done great Flysinger, wished my best looked as good as your rusty stuff.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    FlySlinger, once you shake this so-called rust from your hands (I don't see any based on that tie ) would you mind doing a Step-by-Step? I'm intrigued, particularly by the materials used! The peacock herl part has me a bit confused, largely because the color. Then does it have a head cement coat over the abdomen to give it that gloss?

    Either way, I really like the fly and I'd love to attempt to replicate it!
