Another 1st for me,-a double whole feather wing pattern, got a feeling i should have made the paired J.C. in the middle of the wing a tad longer,darn it !! Should have researched this better,other than that, fairly happy with the outcome.

Jimmy,

Yea...maybe the JC could have been a wee bit longer...but that is still one nicely done fly.

Cheers,

George

Dear JIMMY,

 

To contradict 'everyone' here...I LIKE how this "DURHAM RANGER" shows and came out ...ah honestly (and I am allways serious in my replies)...I think that that JUNGLE COCK nail who is 'peeping out' nicely...rest still visible enough...also the 'shape' of Your "DD" (euh sorry "DR" hahahahaa) is very pleasing to 'my eyes' !!!

 

CONTINUE Jimmy !!! continue !!!

Thanks for the comments gentlemen.!! & Geert.!!!  Dave, for the throat i use schlappen,i buy them white & dye them as required. You can either tie them in by the tip doubled or strip off one side to get the density required.

Hi Jimmy!

Looks darned good. You have it right to kerp BBBBBB is a room by himself, away from gentlemen. Of course he and I room together. I have no interest in being counted a gentleman either. Haha.

He's not allowed any pink in the bad boy room though. Stinky socks are okay.

Nice fly Jimmy. Hope you're well.
