Perhaps not so impressif ...but I amused myself !... I had that need tying her in between two salmon flies I am on train tying ...
Yes I have a day off today (wensday) and I am on train tying allready all the day (it's 17.00 hours Belgium time for the moment)
Since sundayevening (the first day of this new year) I had to start with 2 CLASSIC salmon flies to tie for 'our' yearly FLYSWAP at my flytyingclub at heart in wich I am member since 1986 (that year we splitted from another club for all sort of reasons ...the ones who came with are apart of 'our JOHAN' we lost at bonecancer ...are all still there (perhaps two new members where introduced in our club since...and so the guys are all in there 40 ties/50 ties/sixties and even two in their seventies). We come togheter each thursdayevening ...so my two flies must be ready ...I think I will arrive as I have tied a good part of my second allready to !his afternoon I had enough and felt that need to distress/relax a bit ...
Nothing special...the same recipe...working with the feather who aren't far from my hand and table...a bit of immagination...and a quarter of a hour later 'SHE' was there ...
bits of BLUE / RED / GREEN macaw for her tail
yes yes yes the same macaw colors (but new herls) for her body
a counterclock oval gold over the body to gift her a bit more strenght
a little grey heron hackle as a throath (or grey blue dun hen will work as good if not better ! wink)
a bit of yellow soft stuff of the base of a bit of goose ...for the UNDERWING...I am sure any soft yellow fluff will work
and my 'favorit' natural grey goose for the headwing
a bit unhappy I see in the macro I tuched at one side a bit my hook with my accupuncture needle with doing my head with the black...but I don't think the fish will see 'my unhandyness' and yes I see still a bigger fault in the macro (god I see good now with my new computer ...but I let that for the connoisseurs around 'here' - heehehheee !
Perhaps I can do my best to launch sunday coming allready my second WET for this just started year ...we will see !
EUH AND BEFORE I CLOSE ...THANKS for the warm replies of admiration on my MINI MOM(ish) fy ...and to ALL once more a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 wished (one with lots of hapyness and luck and health ...and some wonderfull moments on the river, lake or sea...and at home on the flytyingbench !
ENJOY and yes I love YOU ALL !
