Carl,
Your post is absolutely stunning! So well done! I really enjoyed scrolling down and viewing each special pattern. I had to stop once in a while to pick up my lower jaw off the floor!
Well done Carl, very well done! Will there be more in the near future?

Thank you gentlemen. I am glad that you guys enjoy seeing them.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

I am not sure how I missed these great flies but they did bring a smile to my face on a rainy December afternoon. Great work!

what hook did you use for the TUE flies? It looks like a scaled down salmon fly hook. And.... you should send me those flies as you'll never get to use them in Florida.

Carl... I've just purchased and read Overfield's book... I wish there were more pictures of actual flies to go with the myriad recipes in the book. Having your flies as references for those you've chosen to tie are great help to me. Thanks to the forum... if I look hard enough, I can find substitutes for many of the feathers in the old recipes, and many of the flies tied by the other members to use as guides.
