    So after lots of staring at all of the submissions, the winner is brian thomas. The creativity, originality and hook choice were second to none in this months salon. thanks all for participating

    What is that hook by the way, and what did you use for the wing pads? It looks damn near irresistable

    Thomas, I like the looks of these. What kind of feather are you using for the hackle on these large soft hackles?

    Hungarian Partridge - some of the stiffer feathers almost on the wing in the shoulder area.

    Good photo and good fly.
    I shoot my fly photos with a Nikon D7000, 105mm closeup lens and closeup rings. Umbrella strobes from Alien Bees (cheapest out there, and plenty strong enough for flies). I like to use a sky blue background, set far enough back it's never in focus.
