    KJ - As usual - very nice!
    Steelhound - love the orange tube

    KJ's flies have really evolved, and I really like what I see, and am a firm believer less is more and personally feel sparser tied patterns can be more effective and fish better than heavily dressed ones (they simply get to the fish quicker), Kev, lets see more

    Thanks bruce
    Steelhoud- i like that rabbit on the right
     
    Some more ****ty cell/instagram pictures
     
    a different color combo
     

     
    I also found some irons that i had burried under all the waddington shanks
    while i still love the larger flies, i think i need to make an effort to fish more "reasonalbe" flies when the conditions warrant.  the tinsel is a bit sloppy and uneven... but it should fish

    Awesome ties!!  Do you guys actually have decent success with them on the PA tribs or just tie those syle flies for the fun of it?

    There are some very nice flies in this thread. Those pictured in Steelhound's last post look excellent. What's the name of the fly in post #17?
