Lady Caroline
« on: March 02, 09:39AM »
Here is a Lady Caroline. I'm going to re do this one the body seems long and the head seems crazy, but this one will swim this year.

The body length is easy to fix  looks like you  mastered the Mallard which is the hardest part of these flies.....

Very nice and  I hope I am with you when you hook up with this.

We hook one on a spey fly this year and I'll put the fly up on the beam at the camp.
I'm looking forward to that.

Here is a free style based on the Lady Caroline, I just started tying and when it was done it reminded me of the Lady.

Here is one from today with some new materials, I'm going to tie this one a few times over the winter and master this fly yet.

great flies!
and Mike, no, no it is not lol when I get one good enough to satisfaction I pray a breeze doesn't come out of nowhere, they have a habit of messing up if you even look at them the wrong way
