Dead Shrimp Blues
#1
I call this one Dead Shrimp Blues. The first half was a "walk in the park" but at the joint, EVERYTHING went sideways but I kept with it with needed breaks to "clear the head" (Mine, not the fly) and the final product is ok. The lesson of the day? Take breaks when needed and calm but keep at it.

As for me, I have been watching on this wonderful fly with stoping my breath. Your's works are amazing, I am watching on the silk combinations with tinsel, so clearly made with loving process, I would like to know about beautiful butt near the tag what is the feather using for it, I risk to say that is peacock barb in metal copper colour. Bewiitched fly with cascade of colourful dessigion, Lovely fly, sir! Pardon me, if I had told about your's work as twist of the tongue. Thank you!

Wow, doesn't look like anything went sideways from here Ronn, I take breaks when tying as well, nothing gained by rushing, when i get to the head i take my time as i used to see the finish line and hastily crack on, which never ended good, cracking fly, Terry.

Thanks guys. The herl at the tip is peacock dyed black. It results in a red copper look.

I’m beginning to think that your love for the blues is a love for creating beautiful works.
