The problem that I would have tying a fly that good looking is to hang one of them up in the bushes. I'd risk life and limb trying to retrieve it! Some of the most dangerous moments I have had floating rivers in a driftboat is doing just that. Hanging over the side of a boat through a tight spot, trying to retrieve a fly off a windfall limb.

Hello Sayfu,

doing that kind of exercise in a boat is, no doubt, risky. You should not, even if you are going to miss one of your best flies. And much more if you can tie more easy tying catchers as these ones are.

Thank you for your comment.
