Hopefully I’m not too late, but been quite busy lately, so haven’t got any time to tie. Unfamiliar pool, so my choice would be ‘Den Vanliga”, “The Usual” as you guys might call it. Tied on tungsten bottle tube, Alta gold holo tinsel on body + sx inner tube & m sized tube for hook. Yellow polar bear, orange raccoon dog and fiery brown fox on a wing with a couple of strands of nasty rusty angel hair. Light blue hen as a hackle. Fits turbo nickel cone to the top of it. Easy and fast.

Yes I know. Just decided to post as you haven't had opened the poll and the new topic wasn't open. I think there have been some exceptions allowed in the past.Hi Zamora, at 14 hours past the deadline I feel its to late to be included for last month. Sorry, Iain
Stunning fly. Sparsely tied so great movement in the water and love the blue head.
Thanks Patrick, cheque is in the postToo many to mention - JockieScott's fly because it's a clever twist on the Irish style and I love the colours and that body rib is tight, Stephenb's Shrimp because I think it has a lot of potential - CB's skinny fly that I need to copy the style of - andrzej - one of the only tyers who ties a flamethrower that I think looks right - and then I'm a sucker for a Calvin. Two fantastic versions - Snap T and Woodsy. Both perfect. But just the shape and flow of the hook versions did it for me so Woodsy get's it -I'd love to be able to tie then looking like that.
