Yeah....

The pros make it look so easy. After watching one in action, I feel like I am all thumbs. You should watch Oriental women in action (No, not THAT way - I mean tying flies)! They even give the pros a run for their money!

John Desjardins Q, I watched someone tying a fly like the one on the top at a show and it didn't take that long maybe ten minutes. I brought a sample home, but by the time I got home & was able to tie I couldn't tie it for the life of me.

I WONDER?

Beautiful, but I wonder, does using them require a formal tux, or will a shirt and tie be ok? ( I have basic black....waders)

It does ride with the hook bend up... that's the way Russ tied this one.

Quentin Wow! Those are extremely realistic! I can only imagine how long it would take me to tie one of those.

Does the last hellgrammite (the one on the swimming nymph hook) ride with the hook point up? If so, that would be ideal for crawling the fly along the bottom.

At the rate I lose stonefly nymphs/hellagramite patters I couldn't bring myself to use these. They almost belong in a frame.

John Desjardins Beautiful fly weaving in those flys. I've always loved how the weave can both give segmented & contrasting colors.

My compliments to their creator. I would not want to follow Russ through the pool!
Yeah, no kidding! Man, those flies are bad! Amazing tying, that's a great example of true artwork at the vise.

Dble Haul Those flies are amazing....any self respecting trout would take them.

They're almost too nice to use (I said almost).

Look at the wings..... deer hair, splayed flat, covered with Flexament, then cut to shape.
