Stephenb91 …..nice to see you back entering ,had noticed your tieing going from strength to strength and that is absolutely up there 👌👏…..looking at the style 🤔 you have been having lessons from a past master 😉
What a start !!!! Just brilliant entries across the board !!!!
Thanks Sedgy for the welcome back to the TOTM and your kind compliments (y) I kept an eye on the entries for 2022 and it's great to also see your tying has come on leaps and bounds too 👏 Looking forward to participating again this year!

Head - gold Krystal flash over yellow uni 8/0

For ‘having a go’ that’s super nice, well done if that’s how you tie after only starting in lockdown - it’s superb👍

Yip...... That's had a similar effect on me....
Cracking entry and I love the golden / sunburst front hackle colour 👌
Seems to me that the standard has began at a ridiculous level this year. Good god 🙄😊

It's quite a while since I entered TOTM but thought I would throw my hat in the ring. The competition has developed greatly in terms of quality and quantity with 18 flies posted already. This is my Alistair Frances and is based on the gold, red and dirty yellow/brown combination of the traditional tube fly. Different but not likely to catch on 😆
