I’ve always wanted to tie a fly completely with crest feathers. When I was tying in the hurl head I noticed one of the crests twisted on me. I keep this until humidity starts to twist the ends of the crests.

Regards,

Marty

Kinda quiet lately. Here is a fly I call Vasti Jackson after the blues man. It's one of my Harrison & Bartleet 7/0 hooks.

  The American Ambassador Salmon Fly
Posted by: mfhughesjr - 01-06-2020, 08:50 PM - Forum: Documentation Library - No Replies

An homage to the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom, the Honorable Joseph Hodges Choate, dressed by P. D. Malloch, and presented at the March 11th, 1902 dinner of the Fly Fishers' Club.  Interesting, that we create similar, patriotic flies almost a century later.  Wish that it had been a lithograph, instead of a plate, so that we could view it in red, white and blue.

Guys,

Thanks for all the inspiration! This is the first dress-fly out of my vise in more than five years. I rarely post flies and haven't posted one here before. I'm not completely satisfied with it, but it helped knock the rust off the fingers. Glad to be tying again, and looking forward to a new year.
