Very Nice!

Henning,

This looks like a deadly fly, and beautifully tied. I think you have mr. mallard under control!

Welcome to the board, and good luck fishing this year,

John

Fine flies!

Hi Henning,

All three of those flies are great looking. I think that "empty" feeling you mentioned on the Rusty RAT could have been helped with a slightly bigger hackle and a turn or two more. I do like the trailing hackle on that though.

Happy Trails!

Interceptor I would say you studied the Shewey book hard and correctly this long norwegian winter congratulations I am sure they will fish well.

Cheers

I am new to this board; that is, I have been reading for some time but only registered today. I thought I'd start of a bit on the bold side by posting some flies that I have come up with during this snowy Norwegian winter.

I have been experimenting with spey flies for some time, but only after buying Shewey's book I have made a sort of breakthrough and made them look somewhat like what I want them to. Up til now, I have concluded that mounting mallard wings is an adult business; for foul language I have introduced an age limit of 18 years in the vicinity of my tying bench.... I have now lowered this somewhat...

Anyway, here goes for the scrutiny of the international expertise. This first one is a more or less classic Grey Heron (the yellow part of the body isn't readily viewable on the photo, or rather scan), dressed with blue eared pheasant in stead of heron. Hook is Mustad salmon hook size 1.
