  1. Sorry, I don't know how this got back up, I didn't repost it, at least on purpose... But it might be OK cause of Big E's riddle!!!!!

    I've been working on this one for a while and just finished it. Haven't tied one with with this many materials in it for some time but I'm pretty happy with it. I'm not going to mention the things I see that need improvement..... but there are a few, hope you like it.

  5. Thanks guy's, glad you like it.

    Jack, I was surprised when I took the picture of the fly in the vise backwards and it turned out better than the one in the normal direction? Maybe just because it's closer?

    Bill, I never thought about it.... Let's see, I count 25 including the underbody... I think?
     
  6. Awesome job!!! The proportions look great! The head is perfect! Nice work!

    How many hours do you have in it?
     
  7. Excellent work
    I wish my skills were even close!!
     
  8. I yi yi.... that's a lot of materials to gracefully marry together.
     
  9. Good question...I don't have a clue, quite a few I'm guessing, It would be hard too sit down and tie one from start to finish at one time. It's a hour or two here and there over two or three days or longer, but I'm getting a little faster but they're not something you can hurry. Most of my time is spent redoing things, sometimes over and over just to get it right, or at least as good as I'm capable of getting it.
