Thanks Roadkill I do the same with hare and copper ties which are similar but different, prefer the old school look of oval tinsel on the GRHE.

Thanks Lance.

Dana that sounds like a real find m8! I've never seen it that fine, sounds amazing. I once found a shop that had a bargain bin and was literally trying to give away the old oval tinsels in Silver and Gold. I bought the entire stash for a song.

I much prefer it to standard wire, gives just the right amount of glint and more of a 3d look, Prince nymphs tied with a silver looks so sexy, especially when you use black ostrich. I often use a few strands of ostrich with a couple of strands of peacock herl twisted in a dubbing loop, incredible fly, I may have to tie and post one if I remember...

Karsten great tip for the Prince nymph...... I think we would all like to see your version !

Hope my parcel arrives to you soon - according to my post office in New York City, your address is one of the furthest points from Me, that I could be mailing a package to: 16,710 miles or 26,892 kilometers!

I have enjoyed fishing Hare and Copper variations since 1987 after I picked them up in New Zealand. Great fly for even more weight than I put in the GRHR.

Karsten, it must be almost impossible to beautify a GRHE more than this.

Twisting two, or more, strands of wire brings an effect to a fly that a single wire never achieves. Sometimes that can be a bonus, but not always. Two different shades of copper on a Hare and Copper can be nice. Preferably close but different.

Karsten,
Your GRHE is perfect! Your version is the way I want mine to look! I also like the dampened versions you have photographed! I love the haloed effect of the outer guard hairs allowing the gold rib to "shine through" just right! Very well done Karsten and we look forward to other classics you may have in the works! A really good looking nymph!

Karsten - This is such a handsome version of the GRHE. Just the right balance of scruffy chaos, with nicely proportioned body. Fin-tastic!

Doug & Ray hit the nail on the head.....that really is a perfectly proportioned specimen you posted.......maybe, since just about everyone ties and fishes their own version of the GRHE, we could have a GRHE fly swap!

......still waiting to see come of your handiwork on the Allcock's & Bergman's....... :mrgreen:
