    Title says it all - not proportionally correct by the strictest terms, but a decent looking fly, probably a swimmer

    yeah, I was looking at the tag, nice taper and smooth, enjoy eyeing the posts of your dressings, I no longer tye. But enjoy seeing them

    Yeah, forgot about the tag. been working getting better taper throughout the whole fly, using a different technique now, which is much more efficient than hand winding floss.

    Glad you enjoy my posts. i only post them for folks to look at, i'm not seeking critique, though it is most welcome when it comes.
    I'm trying to inspire folks to start tying classics...wet flies, rangeley streamers and atlantic salmon flies.
