some Flumphs off the vise heading to Carl ;) Photo Heavy

I've procrastinated and procrastinated, finally pulled my finger out and snotted a few flumphs onto some irons for Carls IBF auction (sorry its taken so long m8) :oops:
I don't really tie flymphs, ironic considering I've been a member on this forum for quite a while. All my wingless wets to date have been spiders, well here's my first shot at some flymphs and second go at using my beautiful Clarks dubbing block made by our talented Will :D

Beautiful flies, everyone of them Karsten.
I hope they bring good money for the auction.
You're looking like a pro with the pre-spun bodies. Well done.
How hard can it be?

These will really class up the auction boxes, Karsten. Imaginative designs classically tied.
In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Karsten,
I second what Bill said. Perfection, and beautifully photographed.

Thanks Lance, :)
I used a different lighting setup in this one which was a compromise but still half decent. My better half bought me a foldio which is fantastic, but just doesn't produce enough light for good macro. I improvised by using my desk lamp to help a bit. Still decent but nowhere near as good as my usual light source which is just two desk lamps with diffusers attached.
