Screwed around and made my own pattern today

Post  Charlie G. on 9/27/2012, 3:53 pm

I sat down at the vice today and wanted to tie up something new.
Once I got started and did an inventory of materials I haven't used lately and had a good amount of, I put this together.
I know this fly won't hold up to toothy critters, but I am somewhat happy with it. Not sure what the fish will think of it tho.

This is the first time I used craft Fur on a fly, on the wings and belly. The body is mallard flank feathers. I'll probably never fish it but it helped me improve my tying skills and pattern designing skills which are lacking.
Not perfect but I like it Very Happy






I still need to coat the head, and I noticed the one flank feather was tied in farther to the rear of the fly so it isn't perfectly symmetrical. Maybe the next one if I tie another will be better.
