..and then it was done and what a brilliant number of entries and number of votes to the open the year on what I feel was a pretty tough challenge both in deciding what to tie, materials available and finally trying to decide where to place your vote! Thanks everyone. It's also great to see that while the votes were spread widely, the new scoring system has held up with a number of votes required to get in the placing points and so without further ado...

With 12 votes, gaining 1st place and 10 points: Spectrum Shrimp

With 9 votes for 2nd place and 7 points: SnapT14 and DrPatrickT

With 8 Votes for 3rd place and 5 points: Zamora

With 5 votes for 4th place and 3 points: Logan Houston, Easky

With 4 votes for 5th place and 2 points: Bens_Flies and Beel

With 3 votes for 6th place and 1 point: mcandy, Pete V, Tony Mac, Andrzej and Tailfire


Congratulations to you all for taking on the challenge. Often I will comment on the winning flies, picking one or two out for comment but I genuinely find that impossible. The high degree of skill and artistry shown in taking this classic as designed or in creating your own variation was outstanding throughout and even if you didn't feature on the podium you deserve an accolade but all I can give is the 4 points for entering.

I think this is my new all time favourite set of entries as a result!
