been trying to work on tying smaller salmon flies, sz 6...I guess you'd call them spey style, but I haven't been doing to well with the wings.  Its fun though....and really is a hard lesson in learning proportions.  I think theyd work for trout though. 

I haven't been copying anything directly in terms of colors, just the materials...minus the JC for the eyes.  I've been cheaping out and using starling feathers, as at least I can practice on tying them into the wing, or on the drop, etc...

I'll take a couple pics tonight...but be kind, they suck :lol

For the wings are you marrying the feathers together? I found that to be challenging. It was because of the wetflies from Don Bastien that I learned how to the thread loop to cinch down on those type of wings. It's tricky as hell, but if you can do a thread loop it helps out a lot.

not a married wing...just tying in a pair of bronze mallard feathers.  I just can't quite get them to set right.  Still working on it.

I have...I severely struggle with small flies, small pieces of materials.  It's just a big departure from the norm for me

Attempted another "rat"....I like it, it better swim upright lol....I'm good at tying upside down drowning rats.  Gonna swim this on the Charles Saturday morning.  Also tied a neat all marabou fly...lucked into some monster yellow blood quills...hoping to raise a pIke on it in the next few weeks.

floated it this morning, it lists a little to starboard but I think on a retrieve it will work fine.

Sits ass down a little too, which was exactly what I was looking for.  I have an idea on how to make one float better so I'll try that tonight.
