I'm typing thus w/ one hand as the other is holding my attempt in progress. I needed a little stress break! The wing preassembly was easy. And I used the floss to tie in the tinsel rib. I'm taking a quick break after tying off the tinsel. Somehow I think the hard part is just beginning. :-) Good challenge, Chris. I'm learning a lot in the process.

This was a lot of fun. It also puts things into perspective on what fly tying was like. However, I remember when I first started tying. It was a lot harder until I learned tips different tips and tricks from others. I wonder what advise Carrie and others would give on tying flies by hand.
