Re: Silver Ibis

If your morning coffee doesn't open your eyes, taking a look at that fly will do it. Marvelous tying, Norm. The herl butt and tinsel body are eye catching. So well done. The color combination is superb.

Re: For viewing Rube Cross

There's something about that photograph that keeps drawing me back. I'm not sure what it is.

Re: Peacock and Partridge

Nicely dressed. I always have a couple of those in my box. Very effective fly.

What is that very nice looking piece of Damascus steel the fly is resting on?

Re: Moonlit Hooks

Thanks for the heads up on the sale. Moonlit is pretty active over on Facebook. The owner is a decent guy. I've traded fly patterns with him a couple of times.

Re: Tauche Tom

Norm, Is that a JC nail tied in as a flat wing? Lovely wee pattern.

Re: Bloody Mary

Just gorgeous, Norm. Are you using metal or mylar tinsel?
