Default Pompeii

Trying a new (to me) winging techinique.

This is the first wing of this Pompadour style I've made.
I had these nice amgold crests and I was aiming for a minimalistic fly.

Hook is not ideal, but I worked with what I had. I'll be making my own more suitable hooks in the near future. THis hook is a McNeese Blue Heron Size 1
Not the perfect outcome I was hoping for as the transitions between the 'tail's' needs some work, but still pretty happy with this one.

I'd be curious to see what this fly looks like being stripped through the water. It is a very interesting fly. Great work as always Eunan! Thanks for posting pics of your work. I always look forward to seeing them.

This is more of an artistic style fly, not really designed for water....more an expression of material limitations and design than anything else.

Thanks for checking in!

Amazing! When I saw it I thought "Pompeii has a pompadour"
