Great fly, Karsten. I tye some "Candy Apple" flies that look similar to this, but I like yours better... The rib adds such a beautiful segmentation to the body.

Very nice: love flies with that "hot spot" look. :)

I don't know what is prettier the fly or the jaws on that vise. Nice pattern, a little big for our bwo's but love the pattern.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Wow, you have a definite command of this type of fly. I love the whole thing. I swear the tag looks like it is actually glowing.

Thanks for all your comments guys :)

Those Candy Apple soft hackles are gorgeous! I like the idea of halving the single strand of floss to cut down on bulk. Thanks for sharing the link Ray...

I aggree Carl it's an emormous BWO but I didn't have a smaller hackle available. :oops:

Karsten, a hot spot would certainly add a new dimension to such a traditional looking fly. These are especially well tied. Wouldn't hurt to throw a hot spot on some North Country spiders. (I'm going straight to hell for that, aren't I? Who's in? :D )

This innovative beauty will keep us longing for more after you return to comp tying, Karsten. Please hurry back; your creativity and combination of synthetics with more traditional materials extends the envelope of soft hackle fly dressings in marvelous ways.

I like your work very much and I think there must always be changes also to spiders, so I like the green tag, got me thinking of a Grannom.
