Thank you Hardyreels, glad you like it! Saying 'not correct' I mean that, as there was no receipt given in the book, probably I tied something a bit different from the original patternWow!
If that's a fly that is not all correct I'm a lost cause here :shocked:
Thank you bankwheel. I'm not a classic tyer either, though I'm getting more and more interested in this kind of tying. It's the second way, the rib, the hackle, repeat...Andrzej, that is stunning and I love the gut eye hooks. I am not a classic tyer, can you explain how you tie the body hackles in? Do you stop the rib then tie it in or do you tie off the rib then tie in the hackle then start a new rib again?
