The "Peach Orange" is a Dry Fly built on a size 12 hook. Thread is white 6/0. The body is formed using the bottom fluffy part of the Hen feather trimmed off and then made into a dubbing loop wrapped around the hook. The Florescent Orange feather fibers were pulled away from the stem and then tired onto the hook shank to form the top wing. the head was formed using the white thread. It was finished off using Sally Hansen hard as nails sparkle gloss. Don't tell my niece that I used her nail polish for my flies.

The Orange Blossom is built on a size 10 bait hook. White 6/0 thread was used to cover the lead .015 wire wound over the shank twice. Florescent dubbing was wound around the white thread and then wrapped over the shank of the hook. The first wing was a Hot Florescent Strung hackle that extended past the bend of the hook. The second pair of wings was a light Hen hackle used to offset the outside of the fly. The head was finished with 7/32" golden holographic eyes and then I used Loon's UV head cement to complete the head. A small amount of clear hard as hull head cement was used to seal the Loon's resin.

The Badger is a dry fly. I used a size 10 Mustad dry fly hook with the eye down. The thread was dark brown 6/0. The tail fibers were Squirrel and the Body was Badger fur. The head was part of the Badge fur that stood erect after I tied the fur in place.

This fly is called the "Puff Fly." It is built on a size 12 bait hook. The tail is a small white feather taken from underneath of the wing of the Mallard Duck. The thread is black 6/0. The over wing is a grey Guinea feather that acts like Marabou but has white spots at the end of each fiber. I used a medium gold bead and 15 turns of .015 lead wire from the front of the hook turning backwards.

These two flies are my "Rocket Streamers." The one on the left is built on a tube and the one on the right is built on a hook. The tube fly is built as a "step down" from a medium size rigid tube to a micro tube for the head of the fly. The materials used are: orange rooster hackle for the body wing; mallard grizzly feathers for the underwing; black rooster hackle for the over wing and jungle cock eyes for the side wings. Thread was black ultra thread.
