    Here's one I finished a few days ago so I figured I'd throw it out. I've been working on mixed wings which are closer to the old styles then the married wings you usually see and are just as difficult but in a different way. I found it a bit of a challenge to get so many materials on such a small (for full dress flies) hook.
    Anyway hope you like it and feel free to comment.... Mark DSCN2525.JPG DSCN2519.JPG

    Good Lord that's beautiful. If I tied something like that I'd sit in my chair staring at it flabbergasted that I'd tied something like that.
