Those look like sure fire winners to me Henry!
Looking forward to reports of screeming reels and backing melting away into the horizon

|Dble Haul||I believe the recipe is in a thread just a few below this one.|

Can you post the recipe?

|Dble Haul||Thanks Henry. That's more per hour than I assumed (which is a good thing).|

I tie up a 1/2 dozen in a session and it takes about 1hr including epoxy steps.
Flies are all tied first ready for epoxy then I get two blobs of 5min. epoxy on the go mixed about 3mins apart. From there it's just a matter of going from one fly to the next.
I've spent the better part of 4 or 5 hrs tying a single salmon fly so I guess 1/2 doz. per hour is reasonable.

That's a great looking pattern. How long does it take to tie/epoxy one?

My Ultimate Shrimp fly pattern is getting better...
A few more weeks of toying around with my new pattern and I think I've got it down pat now . I've tied them from size 8 up to size 1 and the bigger they get, the more realistic they look. I'm even starting to think that no self-respecting Permit would consider passing one of these up .
I've attached a couple 'artsy' pics for you to see. The fancy stuff is just my temporary way of copyprotecting the images .
I've got lots of "hi-res" pics available should some of you want to get in close to see the details.
