What's in your vise?

First fly of the year, Fulling Mill pike hook #6/0, tried a bucktail head & had a idea to put a small washer to keep the face flat, worked good! Also like this hook because the shank is a bit longer & can fit more junk on there! Also says on the packet from Japani, not some bullshit text trying to make people think it's not from China!

A big pearl sequin sitting in front of the washer would top this off perfectly. Great tie regardless.

An old B.C. stillwater pattern (not sure if it came before/after the Carey Special, with which it shares some DNA); added an aftershaft thorax. First chance I've taken to use the rump patch I dyed in the ongoing search for picric.

hook - Dai Riki 730 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 light olive
tail - pheasant rump dyed light olive (1Tbs Rit Neon Yellow/1 cup water)
rib - small wire gold
abdomen - pheasant rump dyed light olive (twisted)
thorax - pheasant aftershaft dyed light olive
hackle - pheasant rump dyed light olive
