Nice. I need to look into getting some ewg hooks. Post up a photo or two with your ties in a fish’s mouth or a story about fishing them. I’m always interested in reading what works or doesn’t.
There’s really no limit on what can be put on a hook and how. I usually have several things I want to tie, but just run out of time to get them done or am missing some vital piece. Yesterday, I was going to work on spinning some deer hair but somehow got into some salty patterns.
My experience is the fish truly don’t care if the fly has a name or is in a book or not. Some flies I’ve tied are duds, some are okay, some work great. Some are more or less, to the best of my abilities, faithful copies of a known pattern and some are me going off on some tangent.
It probably wouldn’t hurt my feelings if people posted more of their ties, good, bad or indifferent. I’ve always gotten ideas from what people post about what the are tying and fishing. Sometimes, someone’s comments might help make a tie better.
Anyway, glad you posted. Forums are just livelier when folks post.
