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

Those flies are amazing....any self respecting trout would take them. :p

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

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.

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

BigDave 04-08-2003 08:51 AM

Beautiful :whoa:

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

Yes excellent flies and pictures.

look more realistic than anything i've seen lately

Quentin 04-08-2003 07:02 PM

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.

Q

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

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)
