Hi All,
Been trying to make the best of my "self isolation". This pattern calls for an interesting cheek feather, "Unspotted enameled cinnamon feather from a jungle cock cape." I have not seen that called for before, and had never even noticed the feather in the cape. Ronn, it looks like you might have used that feather on the fly you post in my thread regarding gut. This was tied on 7/0 Harrison Hollow Point.
Best,
Dave

Hi,

Wondering if there is a significant difference between Spanish/Japanese gut. I have noticed that John sells both options. Does one look better, easier to work with? Would love to hear peoples opinions. I have been using the Spanish for no particular reason.

Best,
Dave

Hi All,

I chose this fly because of its nice color palate and thought it would be an easier pattern given its simpler peacock wing. Of course it was the wing that seemed to give me all the trouble! After a couple of attempts (and running out of 4/0 peacock) finally settled for what you see. On a Ronn Lucas Sr. 4/0 Britannia (??? Have seen this spelled 3 different ways: Britannia, Brittania, Brittannia).

Best,
Dave

Hi All:

Inspired by some recent Napoleon posts, and extra time on my hands these days, decided to give this pattern a go. Harrison and Bartleet 7/0. As always had some struggles but enjoyed the journey.

Best,
Dave

Hi All,
It has been too long. While I haven't contributed for a while, I have enjoyed seeing everyone's posts. Finally finished the last Butcher pattern I have come across. 7/0 Harrison and Bartleet. Included the four Butchers in a group shot as well. Is anyone aware of any other Butcher patterns? As always, comments/suggestions are welcome!
Best,
Dave

I hope all of you out there are doing ok with the virus stuff going on. What a deal this is!!!!!! It kinda reminds us how ill equipped we are to battle  nature. Another thing that's happened is how stupid we were to trust China and having pharmaceuticals we depend on not to mention, everything else that comes from there! Hopefully this will make all of us rethink the relationship. Maybe we must pay an extra $10 for a tee-shirt and everything else. Just using that as one item. 

Anyway, keep safe!!! & prayers for everyone!

A new one today on a PJ hook, size 4/0 from Ronn. Sub the wing. As always tied in hand. Its fishable, gut handle 60 kilo so its probably strong enough hehe.
