Posts: 3Hi all,
Put up some flies the other day, but no looks/ratings yet.

Hope you enjoy them!

Neat little page (this one too). Have been enjoying reading all the fly banter.

Nice flies, and good photography, too! I like the blurred jungle cock cape background on the Creamsicle fly.

Posts: 3Thanks Jason. I've used that effect on other shots as well. Really like how it really seems to make the fly 'pop'.

Lovely stuff, Streamertyr. Flies like the Shushan Postmaster and Chief Needabeh always evoke the "golden age" for me--a time of beautiful flies with wonderful names. It's nice to see some great traditional tying, though the Moser Parr is also nice. (I'm sure people are getting tired of looking at all of that realistic crap of mine!) :)

Posts: 3Thanks Lloyd. We're definitely in the 'synthetic & strip age' now, with regard to streamers. The histories of the older patterns has always attracted me to them. No doubt the 'golden age' tyers I focus on (Carrie Stevens, Lew Oatman, etc.) would have employed some of the modern materials we do today, should they have had them at their disposal. There is, however, just something about a classic featherwing or bucktail with a nice amber jungle cock eye...

Some of your realistic forage fish are wonderful, as are Roman's. I recall a couple of yours sticking out in my mind from the first time I saw your book and flipped through it in a local shop. I haven't really focused in on tying and fishing these all that much yet, but there is plenty of time.... :-)
