Completed fly tied in hand, no vise  :) was a lot of fun, and will be doing some more...very nice to not be tied down to the bench.

I was half kidding...probably just stick with the glass.  2/0 is a pretty big fly. 

Plan to tie about a dozen of these, plus some classic streamers.

Two more  :drunk

Indian Rock on the left, and New Lake on the right.  Sort of twin...one is red with a little brown mallard, the other has a mix of teal and GP wing.

Neat flies...going to pick a dozen or so and try to cover the color spectrum.  They look so fishy with the schlappen feathers.

Trying out some of the full feather flies.

This one is called "Thistle".  Pretty cool.  Forgot the tippiet in the tail, and skipped the herl head.  I suck at those lol.

scored a couple cheap, beat up, leather fly wallets on ebay...hopefully for $20 I can recondition them a little bit and have a cool place to stash these bugs. 

might be the year I just go all retro for bass fishing :lol

if you haven't tried tying these things, I suggest you give them a go.  Fun as hell, and such quirky patterns.  The reverse tied wing is bizarre too.  I haven't got it down yet, and the wings split most times, so I go back to mounting them upside down the regular way with a pinch loop.

those are looking awesome Matt.  What do you mean by reverse tied wing?  Tied in at the tips?

american made flies were tied with the wing tips out over the front of the hook.  Typically tied in first, then you wind back and tie the tail, body, hackle etc...once finished, you take the wing that was sticking out over the front of the hook (over the gut/snell), and pull it back into shape, THEN tie it down and finish off the head of the fly. 

tiers could charge an extra $0.50 or so per dozen flies as the wings were stronger and lasted longer.  Same with a full feather wing...tied sticking out towards the front and pulled back.

That's some interesting stuff. I am still looking for more of those plates. I think these are some really cool flies that I would love to see/use more for fishing.
