I'd love a chance to see some of these flies!

I like the krystal flash idea, the color schemes are seemingly endless...... anyone try alternating colors yet?

jsmit- Green is personally a go to color of mine. Posting pictures really isn't that hard, digital cameras are alot easier to work with than scanning pictures. The hardest part is adjusting the image size accordingly. There are several archived posts on the subject of taking and posting pictures of flies.

pacres- I feel that adding a bead gives the soft hackle a little extra dimension as a wet fly that can represent anything from nymph to spent wing in faster moving water. As for the hook, it is a standard straight eye mustad, a good light source just adds to the overall apearence (sunny day open window and a white counter top).

Happy Tying,
