    Nice looking fly, Stu. I figure if I don't make them so pretty, then I won't be so hesitant to fish them... ;)

    Great job Stu. A truly beautiful fly. Can you please help me understand the angle of the jungle cock? I am more used to tying them straight back on saltwater flat wing patterns. I appreciate your sharing your art to help all of us learn.
    Best regards, Steve :thumb:

    Thanks, everyone, for the kind words.

    Steve, the angle of the JC is really personal preference. The classic books refer to the position that I tied these in as "low and drooping". Depending on the pattern I will tie them in like this, straight back, or vene at an upward angle relative to the shank.

    Stu,

    Nice to see your patterns again. I keep all of yours and Scotty Howell's flies tucked away for when I need inspiration for my own meager efforts at the fly tyers art.

    Will you be posting the pics from your summer run swap on this site or your own, or maybe both?

    Ron,

    Thanks... Personally, I'd steer clear of that Scotty Howell fellow :)

    I'm waiting for the last 2 sets of flies for the summer run swap. I've already started taking photos, will post on my site (with a pointer here) when ready.

    Stu
