Attached File  P6200806.JPG   111.18K   70 downloadsThis fly started out to be a Harlequin.  It was tied on a 6/0 hook whose type or maker I do not know. After the body was done and I started to put the wing together, I found the Bustard that I had to make the wing was not appealing to my eye.  So, I decided to build a wing with less Bustard and more turkey based on alternating the colors of the body. There is always room for improvement but I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

 

Thanks for looking, Lloyd

Dear LLOYD,

 

As said on the different "FACEBOOK groups' (euh ofcourse exept that one of the 'Dutch' HAWKER)...

 

I only can bring over my 'greatest' of respect of what YOU obtained as result...

 

Wished that my 'flosswork' on bodies looked as good as Yours here...and the 'tinsel head' is as good as that of any 'super good' flytyer can bring !!!

 

Thanks for posting Your work !!!

Wow!  That's all I can add.  I have tied this pattern twice, neither time came out half as nice as this.  I need to take a razor to those attempts and try, try again.

Thank you gentlemen for all of your kind comments.   

 

Mark,  you have the correct attitude to tying, ie, "try, try again".  That is still my approach as well.  If you have questions about technique, post your fly and ask your questions.  This is a great place to get feedback on technique. 

 

Regards, Lloyd
