Who came up with this challenge? I want to know who to hunt down! :) My very first effort at a hand-tied fly and most probably my last! Only tools used were scissors and head cement. Pre-staged everything except the peacock and bucktail. Funny enough, I had the most trouble with the schlappen and throat golden pheasant crest. First time whip finishing by hand. I did a couple of practices prior and didn't have much of a problem, but prefer the Matarelli tool.
