Re: Hotspot March Brown Emerger

Wow, I'm really impressed by the skill you've shown in everything that you have been so kind to share. I like this fly a lot, you were able to get a nice neat head even with 2 hackles and a wing. I would not be able to do that myself, again I'm very impressed. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Orange and hen

Thanks for the comments guys. Ray what I do to keep the ribbing from creating to much bulk is, I use pliers and clamp down on the end that's being tied in.
