I have been doing some tying of old patterns and did some of these for a friend.  I tried to find a few different styles and just had some fun.


All the hooks are from the later 1800's snelled with horsehair.  The smaller flies average 1/2" long while the larger ones about 1".


Just something different some may find interesting...
