    How many flies do we need to tie this month? I think we might have lost one. Creative Christmas flies!

    I thought we may have lost one too, but we are still at ten, according to a recent PM.

    Streamers! I love streamers.

    My streamers are in the mail tomorrow. I was trying something new and my skills at doing it evolved during the tying. My apologies to anyone who gets one that is sub par, though I think they're all fishable.

    Sweet Cal. Looking forward to seeing them. I'll see if I can spot the beginning fly.

    Just to clarify, do steelhead flies count as "streamers"?

    Ron,

    If you can spot the beginning fly, make sure to send it back to me!

    Calvin1,

    Man, I tried to find it, but they all look good to me. I've never seen that variation before. Should be a killer. Nicely done.

    Glad you liked it, thanks Ron. I was trying to add bulk to the head in an easier and more material efficient way than spinning hair and came up with this.

    New pattern for me. I sent it out today. I tied 12, so feel free to keep the spares.
