Both are beautiful flies as usual. I like the counter rib on the first one. Is that touch dubbing on the second?

Little Something v.2

This is my soft hackle version of a dry fly Henry Hoffman created decades ago that has often saved the day for me. The original was tied with a gold tinsel body. My first variation was tying it as a dry with a holographic silver body on a #22 hook. https://live.staticflickr.com/7840/46627509815_737d...

Just learn to make woven hair hackles like Pott and Grant or go with synthetic Organza hackles. ;) :shock: :lol:

Looks like you are in business to me! 8-) I adjust the dubbing quantity to match the style of body I want to tie, thinner for most mayflies and more robust for some caddis and mayflies like the Drakes.
