Blue Jock Scott...Minor Variation
#1
This hook...a Ronn Lucas, Sr. 4/0 Jock Scott model has been in the vise for 2...maybe 3 months. Well I finally got off my lazy butt and finished the the fly which has had 1/2 the body done since sometime in August.

The variations...Blue Nlitava instead of the Chatterer in the tail just for something different. The body hackle is not called for, just a blue and widgeon throat. Because the other 3 JS patterns all have body hackle I decided to do this fly in that manner. I didn't bother with the herl head. I've tied it that way in the past, but thought why bother this time Wink Other than that it is pretty much by the book.

Don't hesitate to comment gents.....

Dave:
Thank you for your kind words...much appreciated.
George

Okay gents...here is the trio. Just a couple of quick hand held shots of the most recent rendition of the patterns. You will notice differences in the wings...that is my never ending experimenting with shape and position. Many of you have read my comment that while there are traditional standards, a little personal style is perfectly acceptable...to me anyway.

One shot from afar of the boxes sitting my tying desk...the other edited to bring the flies up close.
