    That is stunning Andrzej!

    Beautiful tying!

    Thank you gentlemen for your comments. I still make a lot of mistakes tying the classics, but I'm trying to make each new fly a bit better than the previous one.

    I can only say that you'be been making progress with every new fly posted Andrzej. Practice makes perfect. From my own experience as a fly tyer I can add that it laso takes lots of time to master techniques of working with fly tying materials. Also, especially for this kind of patterns but also for other patterns, high quality materials are essential and they make tying a lot easier and enjoyable.

    Many thanks Janusz for your comment. I'm glad that some progress is visible. At the moment I use just some standard materials, very difficult to get materials for the classics in Europe. A few shops in the USA have got quite good choice of materials, though to get some decent stock I'd need to spend a small fortune... At the moment I'll be trying to improve my tying, which is not an easy task. Thanks again!
