Regarding Ray's Fly...I like the purity and simplicity...Quick to tye and catches fish...

Enhanced colour and detail...Pleasingly spartan...

Evolution and technical DNA upgrades...Enter the TWEAKER!

3-d Eyez under Tuffeley acrilic...Hello Mr Darwin...Goodbye Mr. Ray...


Galapagos Island worm hook departure...

My evil Second Cousin Deceiver insinuation...

Another O'dark thirty revelation...same basic jenes, different shirt...Pete's Fly?!

Genetic Engineering and mylar bling...

Mr. Ray stood too close to the anti-matter-particle-generator...



Badly bloated and mumbling incoherently, he soon came to realize his infallibility... Shocked

G'day Kelly...
Thanks for your kind words... 'small internet world!
Your tyz look great... Get 'em wet and dance with some fish!

Driftern...
I agree... simple and easy stuff can be special...
besides showing off good technique, the fish seem to approve as well...
Synthetics are always evolving and get more cosmic all the time, but I still prefer natural fur and feathers... they stand the test of time...
A simple wing of sparse buck tail [less is more] with a subtle touch of flash, topped with peacock herl or rhea...
That's the ticket!...
Ray's is a fine example of simplistic beauty and balance... my evolution exercise was a fun freestyle escape from set pattern tying... there's no denying the basics...
For advanced study, Davis Nelson [davidstrout on stripersonline surftalk] is a "master" of the natural...
Technically refined and balanced... his flys have the "IT" factor and influence much of what strive for!
a bit brisk... Time for tyin'...
