Greenwell's & Flymph

Post by FlyFisherMann1955 » Tue Dec 22, 2020 10:41 pm

Here on the left is my take on a Greenwell's Glory. I substituted mallard instead of starling for the wing because I couldn't get the starling fibers to stay together. On the right is the flymph version per Sly Nemes with a thorax of hare's ear dubbing (split thread). I also substituted light olive Pearsall's on the flymph instead of the yellow (waxed) on the winged version.

How did I miss these earlier?!

Both are beautiful flies, especially the winged version. I like the way you’ve set the wings and the body work.

I'm like Ray. How did I miss these. Both are beautiful examples. Nicely done.

Beautiful examples of this venerable classic! I agree with Ray up above! You did well!
