Very nice ties.
I always have the thought when I tie on a beautifully tied fly and throw it out in the river " here check this out", and then when I get a pull or even a hookup it just makes the experience well, that much more awesome. My non tier friends ask some times why go to that much trouble and I say why not.
I have collected a fairly large number of hackle tips as waste materials from tying other steal head flies. Maybe hackle tip wing flies will be my next obsession.
