A fly
#1
A new today. Just something i tied just to get started again, been busy and havent tied for a while. No plan at all. All body is just ordinary black tyingthread, not any silk. Hook is a PJ size 5/0 from Ronn.

As the saying goes, "less is more". The black thread becomes a minor player letting the joints and hackles shine. I was looking at your flies I got years ago, just yesterday. Fun stuff.
Happy Trails!

Ok, yeah you have a few of mine. I have two of yours, two from Bud, one is actually a classic Baron, not often seeing a classic tied salmonfly from The big Cajun, 4 from Aussie Bob and a few from a chap in US, but sadly i dont remember his name. He tied in hand, beautiful flies. Its the only flies i have from todays tiers. But i have a few antiques. Sometimes when i looking at my old flies i find a fly i really like but mostly not. What about you Ronn? How do you feel about flies you tied years ago.

The further I get away from my first flies, the less I like them. I think that would be the same for most of us tying the fancy flies. Still, there are a few of my old flies I still really like because they are mostly "benchmark" flies. I keep some of my early flies hanging on my walls to remind myself where I started. There are a few (very few) flies that are my favorites and that again, changes over time. The same thing happens with my hooks. I think this all happens with "hand made" things. If I could, I'd recall the early hooks and replace them with my hooks from today and I think that is what handmade things "special". Again, I think is a human thing. One last thing, I don't "razor" my really "dud (bad)" flies and put them in a box and I also look at them from time to time.
Happy Trails!

My kind of fly,KO. Wonderful proportions ( esp the hook/dressing marriage ), it's economy and simplicity, and your exceptional tying talent

Simplicity often equals elegance, and this case that is true. Very nice KO.
