Another one I lifted from Gary. Now I'm starting to like this style of tying too! Starting to get somewhere it seems.

I think I know the problem. Either I need smaller saddle hackles or longer streamer hooks to get the natural shape of the feather under its own weight to hang over the end of the hook. Best I can come up with for an excuse.

Couple more I was farting around with while the ship was into some heavy rolling this morning.

Devilish. Collar not sparse enough and missed the red for an under wing. Didn't have the right shade to lift rpen's trout throat.

So the feather needs to match the hook. And all along I was cutting the feather to fit. Hmmm.

Another of Gary's streamers. Not as nice too much overhang and had to substitute orange and green with calf tail. Love the pattern, no doubt about the success you had with it Gary.

nice looking fly...before you wrap off the head try to unwind your thread so that it is not twisted, then when you wrap it off the thread will lay flat and it will be easier to get a smooth finish.

Guess this might be called a salmon Mickey. I should give it to someone that could catch a fish with one.
