flytyer Sean,


Dynamite looking low water fly (at least I think of it as a low water fly). Great use of the pearl diamond braid and the sublte touch of flash in the wing, you just gotta love it. I'm going to tie some on Alec's River Dee Low-water hooks simply because I like the way a low-water fly looks on them.

I see you have found that UNI-Stretch helps tie a real nice fly.

Another Winter Blue

Another fly that may be good on a cold clear day. Again I apologize as the scan is not great.

This fly was in part inspired by looking at Scotty Howell's hairwings. Squirrel hair wings have been an obesession for me as of late.

Tag: Fine Oval Tinsel / Aqua UNI- Stretch
Body: 1/3 Pearl Diamond Braid / 2/3 Black Seal Sub
