kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Not that you care, but I have a feeling posting two patterns there’s already a YouTube vid of, and two patterns that are just two materials different may be one of the reasons people give you hell around here. You tie some good flies that have given me some ideas, but it’s difficult at the least trying to go back and find them while sifting through all the others that are just renditions of a previous one. Everyone here can do their own tweakage. I guess what I’m trying to say is, less is more.

The golden pheasant came in the mail yesterday; what a difference from the the Chinese capes I've been trying to sub with. Left the hen hackle in the ginger dye bath a bit too long (90 seconds next time) but it blended okay with the GP.

hook - Dai Riki 075 #8
thread - MFC 8/0 light brown
tag - tinsel gold
rib - oval tinsel gold
body - dubbing hare's ear
body hackle - hen grizzly dyed ginger ("Mimosa" - 4 tsp Rit Golden Yellow/ 1/2 tsp Rit Camel, 1 cup water)
shoulder hackle - yellow golden pheasant body hackle
front hackles - hen grizzly dyed brown over grizzly dyed ginger
One of these
