Okay, I'm back from Ellensburg (where I became the sixth recipient of the FFF Washington State Council's Fly Tying Hall of Fame Award, I almost broke my arm patting myself on the back. Actually, I did feel honored, if a bit puzzled about what I'd done to deserve it). Looking around during the show, I saw only a very few tiers tying terrestrials, specifically beetles and/or ants and thought that might be an apt choice for this month's salon. So, c'mon, show us whatcha got. Just to get your creative juices flowing, here are pictures of a winged ant and an ultra-simple beetle, patterns with which I've had considerable luck.
