Nice Pete. It will be interesting to see how all the flys vary.

"Steaming" hackles
Since most of the swap flies will likely be crunched in the mail, one easy trick to restore hackles is to steam the fly over a kettle.
Works great for some types of hair wings as well.

Pete, I like your use of the red wire instead of the usual copper. It looks great.

Frenchie, these would be a killer patten for
early summer runs on the Rogue.

Interesting how some patterns are 'consistent,' then go dead as a doornail.

That's when you'd shift to these.
