First Blue Charm(white wing)
« on: June 19, 11:00AM »
One of Mikes ties that I got from a post by Gary. Need the right color floss and the wing is not the shade I see in most patterns but on a certain Atlantic river this one is a salmon nemesis.

Correction the "collar" is the wrong shade of blue.

They all look good, but the 2nd is my favorite. The sparser tied flies always appeal more to me...

Just finished this one and it is the cleanest one I tied yet that I can say. Not sure if I will be able to tie them when not trying to hold my chair in place the whole time. These have been pounding the ship broadside all night and gradually worsening. Think I'll go wedge myself int bed now .

Hey, thanks caddis. This tie for some reason, even with the loco-motion just seemed to flow together and took less than 10 minutes. I'm baffled really.

Yeah, another variation. This is a hot fly on all the rivers home but I have plans for these on just one where it is on fire during the June runs.
