Hey fellas .I'm new to the site, and have been inspired by the creative and excellent tying here.
Two browns I tied .The second has been successful for me swinging it on small rivers for browns.
Thanks for looking

Beautiful ties, welcome to the Flymph forum!!!! Those would work well most anywhere. What is the feather that you used for the hackle on the second one?

Steve - Welcome to the forum. The patterns are terrific and I am looking forward to seeing more of your tying in the future.

Would you mind sharing the full recipe for the patterns? They are keeper for sure. ;)

I like the tip and and tag on the first one, the second is simpler and deadly looking, 8-)

Welcome Steve. Those flies look great. I like the body on the second fly, how it looks spiky but still soft.

Post more of your flies, you do great work on them.

Nicely done. I'm really liking the second fly; I've got to do more with ostrich...

Steve,
Gloriously beautiful patterns you have made! I'm in love with both of them! Your tying style is indicative of the great ones in this fly tying realm most of which belong to this forum!
Welcome to you and thank you for giving us such wonderful work!
Yours from the Den,
