Wow, what a selection and beautifully tied. Some lovely colour combinations and it’s always interesting to see how nice the subtle browns and whites of natural feathers mixed with a bold colour look great - yet - I never really try and replicate that on a modern tube or hook. Good work 👍

I thought you said "a few" Wow!

I still have the same hook in the vise that's been there for a week almost. Another full 14" when I rolled into action at 7 this morning, it's gonna be another interesting day :)

All those look brilliant. I particularly like the Pheasant rump one in the second picture.

Lovely stuff!

I'm going to agree with GK in that the second image with the long jungle cock feathers and the blue / pheasant going on is really a spectacular piece of fly crafting. Is that just something you threw together?

Thanks gents. Ard / Grassy, that is the Gibbs Shrimp pattern. A Steelhead pattern originated by Mike Brooks that is detailed in Trey Combs Steelhead Fly Fishing book. I wish I was clever enough to whip together a freestyle like this. I added some stylistic flair to it.
