Atlantic salmonfly swap

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.

Finished my first fly. I'm not crazy boot it but it's not terrible. This was my first time ever tying the Black Dog and it's one of the toughest classics i've tried. Down and back w the black floss, 3 ribs and a delicate hackle to tie in and work around, not easy. I know what i'd do differen't next time, but ya always do right ? Anywhoo, here you have it tied on a Lucas, noble ds 2/0 dee iron

Uh, yeah, so i've had more than one person ask boot my shitty photography. Yes, the fly is flat as a salmonfly should be.

That Augustwest is one clever dude eh ? Carry on my friend, you are doing some strong work.

This 2/0 dee iron is much longer than a 4/0, so it's more like i already tied two. I'm gone stick a 4/0 in the vise later tonight though.
