I've been slow with my tying but manage to get one done here and there. Tied this for a co-worker as a thank you for taking me Salmon fishing on lake Superior. Found the pattern in Bob's book. It's on an antique hook, very small as specified for Lake trout in Scotland. It was a fun one to tie but reminded me that mixed wings aren't as easy as you think they should be. The picture is garbage, but you get the idea.

Well, here it is. I can't remember the last fly of this type (not a general fishing fly) that I tied. It ain't perfect, but I'm happy with it. It is going to a co-worker who also fly fishes and gifted me the wood duck and mallard. I apparently have no yellow floss left so I used Berlin wool instead and subbed some mallard for the guinea in the collar. It's large and in charge.
