Was inspired by my visit today to the flymph forum to break my “dry” spell and tie some wets. Heavy size 14 sproat bend, split-thread natural tan awesome possum, and 2 turns of grouse. Oh yeah, and krystal flash antennae.

What Ray said. Those look really fishy. Well tied, my friend.

Dearest Hankinsfly,
Awesome looking patterns above! I love'm! They are dead ringers for a pattern that I first tied many decades ago! Talk about super soft! In fact, it was the first true wet fly that I tied and fished successfully! You have inspired me to try these again and to fish them with true confidence! My wet fly box always welcomes newcomers to the neighborhood!

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
