    Well, not that big hook - its a Partridge CS15 size 2.

    This fly was recently featured on streamers365 for those that dont follow the project. I was tied by Davie McPhail of Scotland. Great tyer, and puts out great videos, check him on youtube.

    Anyways, it was auctioned of this weekend as part of the project to raise funds for charities. I was bidding, but didnt win. It sold for $63

    So last night, in fit of despair after not winning it, i did the next best thing, and tied one up

    Enjoy

    cool project and very nice looking fly you've tied!

    I've visited the 365.com website and enjoy the flies but there is also some good literature referenced and a nice streamer hook ID chart that I've used to determine what I have in the UKN inventory.

    Hey guys, thanks for checking in.

    The website sure has a lot of good info, and i was able to get a bunch of classic hooks on ebay that are referenced there, so win win!

    AS for bidding, i went up to $50.

    Your Jock Scott streamer very nice. I've often thought of "converting" some classic Atlantic Salmon flies to streamers but never could quite figure one out that looked good. Leave it to Davie McPhail to do so. Anyway, your posting of these flies caused me to dig out some of mine tied in the 70's. Here is my Jock Scott 3/0. Keep in mind this fly has been fished. I just re-varnished the head.

    Those are some great looking flies. Eunan, I like the way you did the over and under tail, thats cool.
    Jack, I wish mine looked that good before I fished them, nice one!

    Mark and Jack....thanks for the comments.

    I really like the fly when i saw it on the streamers365 project. I was actually a simpler tie than i thought. The hook is pretty big, so i guess that helps.

    Jack, have to agree with Mark, that fly looks in good nick for 40yo.

    Jack - is that paper or thin cardboard between the vise & hook?

    TD,
    It is just a bit of folded card stock. I use it on some flies because my vise is old and the jaws leave marks on the hooks. The practice of protecting a hook in such a way is not, however, unusual. Many tiers do this on presentation flies or flies for show.

    Good idea. I have an old vise that I retired because it was nicking my hooks and breaking them from time to time. I tried emory cloth & sandpaper but still had problems. I would like to use it as a travel vise. I'm going to try this out and see if it works on it. Thank you!
