So I probably made the mistake of choosing 6b and not 6a. Thanks for the feedback fellas.
I wouldn't beat yourself up about it because the fly itself looks impressive. I like the color of the silk with that hackle,

Re: More Glass Bead Kebari

Thanks guys. I tie in the hackle by the stem 90 degrees to the shank immediately behind the bead; after wrapping the desired amount of hackle I tie off the waste end in open spirals wrapping as far down the hook as you'd like before breaking it off; I then wrap the dubbing (muskrat in this case) up...

Re: Snipe Bloa

I like the mole dubbing. It gives it a unique appearance in color. I'm going to have to try and locate snipe feathers and try them out for myself.

I just learned something

Well, I think I have. Hooks. I have come to the possible realization that you can tie a better more uniformed looking fly with the proper hook. And it may take a slight difference in the shank length. Which in my mind makes a hook a very important part of the tying materials used. This idea finally ...

Re: Morus silk thread

It looks great! The color is a strong shade and personally I like that.

Yes, please, as soon as you tie some more and get a good evaluation on the silk, let us know more of what you think.

The Saint

Last year I received some under fur from a friends dog. He swore by it using it as dubbing. I thought, why not. So I played with it and came up with some patterns until I came up with something that looked pretty decent. I started fishing it on the Saint Vrain Creeks and it did really well when othe...

Re: Black Magic

There is no reason why that fly wouldn't catch a fish. Great job and I like the red bead.

Re: “Dr No”

That's a very attractive looking fly. The green head looks fantastic on it, and I have never seen, or even imagined ever seeing a body made of material from a parrot. It's quite amazing looking.

I can't see anything about this fly I would change, it's simply fantastic looking.
