I thought I would post an image tonight, to see how it would look on the Site. I took up fly tying again today after a hiatus of 12 years. I can see that I need some fine tuning as shown by this closeup taken with my Micro Nikkor lens and Camera.

Don-

WELCOME BACK, and this is a great site for any level fly fisher and tyer.

If that's an 'out of tune' Humpy you haven't got far to go getting back in the groove, better than my best on this pattern!

tight lines,

Roguerat

Roguerat:

Thanks for stopping by and your comments. The real challenge is tying them on a #16 or 18 and even more difficult, a #20. I will need an added measure of patients on those sizes.

I agree with you on your comment about this Site. I was so impressed, after browsing this site that I wrote a Kudo to convey my appreciation but, have not posted it because I cannot find a section in the Forums for such comments. Neither did I find a New Member forum where I could post that Kudo.

Thanks again for stopping by and your remarks. I'm certain we will cross paths again, I plan to spend a good amount of time on this Site... when I'm not tying or fishing.

Ciao,

Don
