Wow that is awesome. Not to be critical or anything but do flies like that work? I haven't been fly fishing for to long and don't know to much about the actual fishing part haha.

 

Sorry no fly from me, stuff in transport still.

no thing as a silly question....? not in this case....of course they work .. it's "flies like that" which paved the way for fly fishing..I've hooked trout out of the bow on highlanders, blue charms, thunder and lightnings, black sliver tips .. if you fish it they will come ..

 

 

try a big wet in lieu of your worm .. ;)

i'm only entering this on your behalf because it qualifies as a wet fly as well (similar to the other Irish-style shrimp flies)...i hope you don't mind.... :)

I have a contribution that I was trying to get done for the cross board swap, I sent to flytyer to get some critism on it and if he would be so kind to take a pic of it would be great as I can get everyone's opinion on it. But if not you'll have to do another one if the wet fly contests cause by then I should have a decent fly to show
