I did like your single flat wing flies, so I taught I would try tying some.
I know they don't compare to yours, but I had fun trying.

I'm not trying to be competitive.

Joe,,, I could not see the picture.. Don't worry about the competitive stuff... we are sharing info and learning from each other...your flys are bueatiful and tying is fun. You are into tying as much as I am and I think your flys are perfect... I have seen a lot of them on the other board and followed your work and dedication closely.

The hooks are Gaimakatsu 2/0 #82512-10, that isn't marabou, its Success Flies "Flashfibre", I like using this item because the flash material is built right into it.
