    Thank you!

    I'll be turning one out in a bit, thinking I have some root beer flash that can be transformed into the dubbing. All the rest I believe are here, humm, yellow hair, better go check that. Plenty of deer tail yellow but I like softer stuff than deer.

    I have been making them easier and quicker , theres nothing to my flies at all, for example the Sierra gorva tubes below, the top classic style templedog took me about 25 mins, the 2 front hackle version only took me the same time for both, they are tied similar to the sbs of the front hackle banana, the frodin stye are not really pretty flies, but they look good in the water with soft front hackles and all the wing behind , the only issue is you really need an ugly turbo cone in the front with such soft hackles

    I think you would say that I knocked up a couple but had to use substitutes for some things. I'll do a third in the morning and stick up a picture of them here.
