Sorry! When I posted my softhackle sulphur post I did not see the "add picture option", only the "submit message" block.

I must not be doing something correctly?

The fly looks great! What hook are you using?

Well, I guess you guys can see the photobucket pic?
I'm unable to see it!!

I'm not a fly tyer only an obsessed fly angler but thank you for the kind words!

The hook is a Grip #14723BL. I believe it was specifically designed for emerger patterns? I also believe that Daiichi makes a hook so similar it is almost impossible to tell the difference. It's a #1250

Mark, your flies are excellent in every detail! I particularly like the Li'l Dorothy and the Tups! Thank you for putting them up.
Do you think they would be as effective with the Grip or Daiichi emerger hook?

Grip Tups

Click on the link. You tell me! I've heard some complaints about the these Grip hooks that the wire is too soft. There are other hooks of similar shape. Daiichi 1150 I think. The wire is a bit heavier.

I surely don't feel they would be any less effective. Looks good!
More natural looking to me.

My guy uses the Daiichi 1250, of which I posted above.

I'm not getting a pic ?

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

check out the tiemco 206BL hook. although not exactly the same hook, it is similar and i can attest to it's strength. awesome fly. beautiful.
but the brown trout print is even more beautiful. got mine in the mail yesterday. being framed this week. thanks

All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

First, an explanation. The Sulfur Emerger photo is Bobbyg's. People were having problems seeing it, so I simply posted a link to it so people could. It is a very nice looking fly. Reminds me of one tied by Allen McGee.

Tony,
Glad you like the print. I guess it arrived in good condition.
