Sleek and functional. Achille Castiglioni would have not designed it better, had this pattern been an avant-garde furniture piece.
BTW, this is by far the best site for patterns and fly fishing in general.

You had me laughing there!

I'm both glad and sorry that the flies were so realistic that the birds took them. Imagine their effect when fish are around!

You will have to tie up a new bunch and keep a good eye on them while they cure.

Made three of these and put them out in the sun to finish curing. They promptly disappeared. I think they have been so buggy looking that the birds carried them away!

I also always had a weak spot for the term plumulaceous. I learned it while studying biology and was reintroduced to it by Wayne Luallen in his feather anatomy article.

A great word, but impossible to remember and pronounce unless you really concentrate. I usually just say webby...

With, or without the help of Talisker, you certainly do have the inspiration to tie some very innovative, and easy to construct flies. The mallard shrimp should fool any sea trout, and other species as well. The shrimp is a neatly done realistic looking crustacean. (I like the word, plumulaceous, it has gone into my special words notebook.)
