rooster Impressed as always....., I think you need to REALLY show off and use a different vise for each fly..., Pretty sure you could tie at least a dozen!!
Beautiful flies, give my regards to the girls, they look bored-they would rather be chasing seagulls.

'personal idiosyncrasies and dog drool not withstanding...

As the unofficial "Pack Leader", Chief Design Engineer, and provider of copious doggie treats, my job is daunting...
Lucy and Dingo closely supervise me as I dress the hook shaft with mono thread and add some zap-a-gap or Gorila' Glue to create a more substantial mechanical bond... [phuselage less apt to twist on the shaft]...
after all the tying, welding, and treat dispensing is done, I'll put a dab of the acrylic [Bug-Bond or FLEX] between my thumb and index finger and lightly smear it on and into the likely errant fibers... a little dab 'll do ya'...
[SSTS] Subtle Strategically Targeted Stiffness helps defeat wrapping & fouling tendencies...

Fancy "Digs"

Pretty fancy 'digs' for the girlz!!!! Surprized they let you invade their domain!! Dog droolz is wonderphul on natural phiberz but expectorating on the make believe stuph is only way to go!! Pete, do you add just a touch of zap-a-gap to under phiberz at hook bend to cut back on ' phly phouling'?

highway61 Pete....Spit eh? Is the spit yours or does your secret recipe include dog drool?

Inquiring minds want to know.

phur n' phlash behavior management..

G'day Steve...
After I'm done tyin' and/or weldin' I will [more often then knot] run the phly under some hot water to encourage a proper "set"...
In a pinch, SPITTT works too... sort'a...

Great Flyes

As usual Pete, you have set nu standards for others to strive to equal. Must say that the phirst phley in your post of 7-29 strikes me as one that has a severe 'attitude' problem. Maybe it is the shadows or the angle of photo but all I can think of is "I dare you to eat me!" Gotta get me some more of the Bug Bond. Maybe I'll see you on the 6th at Beulah Days!
