Nice tie... thanks for posting it.
gee... with a few changes in color, it would also make a good salmon fingerling pattern.

That's fairly straight-forward and certainly nicely photographed. I think I'll give one a try.

I just got my first fly tying kit and I think your fly would be a bit easier for me to try for the first fly. I'm a bit worried about my hackle-tying future. It looks easy on most videos, but something tells me it's gonna give me a bit of a time. I guess I'm wanting something a bit easier and a well-thought-out arrangement on a streamers seems a good way to get going.

Thanks buddy!!
