The bass popper i tied for a comp on my local forum, TMC 8089 #12! Flies had to be blue & white for Finland's 100yrs independence yesterday!
The swan I tied for the comp, none of the 3 different flies i tied won! But my swan got a special mention by the judges for being a very nice well tied interesting fly with multiple parts! So i'm very happy about that!

Because they work!
