I must pay again two 'tours'...of ALE's (and don't refuse ! 'Young Springer' !)....
Greetings to all around You ...and especially the ONE who commence her name with L. (the letter of LOVE ! )

Lovely. I really like the one on the top right for some reason - it popped out right off for me. Might be what looks like green dubbing on the body in front of the floss, if that's what it is. Bright and lovely, like spring.
But all four are really lovely flies. All 4/0 then? Large ones, eh?
Hope your friend hooks barramundi on the flies you've tied up. Back to the classics for you, sir!

I think all 4 will go down well with the Barra, especially the one on the top right. Great tying.

I just tied Francis Francis' Snow Fly last night and gave it to a guy who is going to fish it this week for carp (No, I am not joking.) IT is an interesting little fly, especially with the short hackle, but I think it balances out the fly alright. With it's lower set wing and the dubbing joints, it just seems to fit better when it is a smaller hackle.
Thanks for showing us what you have been working on.

I sure know what you're talking about when a tyer tries to integrate styles. It's like saying the same thing . but in different languages. Not to worry my friend, these flies are Frandsen flies through and through...and that's a good thing
