I'll get to it today, I have some new supplies to work with. The cancellation of my trip to Scotland has tamped down my urges to tie piles of flies daily but I have to snap out of it I guess.

Here you go; March 24 around 11:05 AM Alaska time zone :)



Think of it as a mini Claret Monkey with a red cone head for a bit of weight. I use a fly I began fishing ten years back I call The redhead but never tried to put it on a tube.



Not very large but I figure it'll catch.

This is one of the originals tied to a hook.



Since I had to retrieve that fly from a box I'll give a look at contents, the red head appears on many although some got foggy over the years.



I really do know how to tie on hooks :shocked:

Here's a fly I made that you can't fish. Unfortunately Corona will last a while longer than their lifecycle.

Here's one that I tied as a possible for TOTM. It is a copy of a fly that Peter Kealey donated to the auction I ran some years ago.

I like the way you have used the different sizes of ribbing. Pity the veilings are top and bottom rather than the sides :tongue:
Congratulations on 8000 posts.

I don't have the white feathers from the ring on a pheasants neck dyed scarlet or I would have! :lol:

Didn't even know I'd made that many posts until now. I don't half talk some rubbish do I!!! :doh:
