This one slightly resembles one I tried to follow along with. It had a name but it was Japanese . Would have been easier to order it in Japanese

T&L variant. Messed up the black/orange bucktail body. Next try I will work on more defined segmentation, which should let that holo blue tinsel look good there. Putting it on right wouldn't hurt either.

Hey thanks Caper40. Usually only tie one or two a day this way, unless I'm repeating the same fly then I can get a few more done in the time I give myself at it. My only goal at this time is to learn more with each one I tie . Don't be afraid to color outside the lines, its the mistakes you learn from most .
