    Default Park shrimp and Monkey Salar doubles

    I was in the middle of posting this when the forum timed out on me

    I had written out a full list of dressings etc, but now I can't be bothered

    Anyway here is the result of 90 minutes undisturbed by children at the vice tonight.
    I tied myself some big park shrimp doubles and feeling quite pleased with myself decided to tie some monkey protoypes ( my style) on salar doubles.
    i started with an origional and then played about a bit.
    here are the pics.
    I will post dressing if people ask for them

    First the park shrimps




    Now the monkeys
    Origional (silver salar size 5)



    Red monkey with tibetan lamb wing (gold slar size 5)




    2 tone green monkey (gold salar size5)



    Orange monkey (Black salar size 5)



    Blue monkey(silver salar size 5)


    Claret monkey (Gold salar size 5)


    I hope you like them, I was quite pleased with them

    Dave, stunning as always I've done a few monkeys on single salars - just screams rising fish .... but I never seem to try them. As usual, when you're on the water, I find I go to my usual catching patterns .... must try to resist and try some different styles to properly test them.

    Nice work, keep it up,

    Altmor.

    Wonderful flies and I'd love if you listed the dressing for the Park (if you have the time) as I'd like to give it ago.

    Thanks in advance.
