Do you have to listen to opera while tying, lol? That is quite buggy-looking.
God, I hope not! Baroque or early classical.
Pagliacci comes to mind when I look at some of my own flies...
Hey, it worked!
Ausable Bombers.... in Adams Gray, Caddis Green and Rust Orange.
More klinkhammer fun. These are size 16's. I found multiple colors of dyed goose biots at a local craft store.
Any excuse to play with weird colours and concepts. After my murky water experience on the Canal for SRC, this came out of the vice.
A dark purple and black, articulated "sculpin" with some red beads on mono for a little sound activity.

I really dig the combo of Gama C14S #6 and a 23mm Senyo Microshank. Much versatility!

I've tied a few Shih Tzu and Lab patterns. Now I occasionally use dubbing salvaged from the dryer lint trap when I launder Hank's fuzzy dog blankets. It comes-out kind of gray with gold/green/brown highlights and a smattering of white & dark brown guard hairs in it.
