Norm, even your nymphs are works of art. That appears to be as close to perfectly tied as possible.

Wow. That is amazing. How did you get the hackle barbs so perfectly in place?

hackle fibers for the legs are tied in forward of the eye and then pulled back on each side of the fly

That's a neat trick. Thanks for sharing that.

Norm,

Are the hackle fibers for the legs the same fibers you used for the wing case (pulled forward for the wing case and then folded back and tied down for the legs), or did you actually use different fibers for the legs from those fibers used for the wing case?

Thanks- Ken
