Been working on streamers the last while. Often a change is as good as a rest and i was burnt out with salmon flies...

America#1 8xl - first of the patriot series.

Jungle Ghost #1 8xl - working from a dog eaten JC cape i had a limited size range of JC - i wish the front three were shorter/smaller. Also wish the Silver Pheasant was somewhat bigger, but it ain't so i'll deal with it. Might have a go at the Jungle Don when i get my new cape in the mail this week.

Demon #2 8xl - been wanting to use Amherst tippets for quite a while, so here they are. Again, this one could be better. I tied the throat as a full wound schlappen feather, hence why it is so long, but i really like the sweep you get from that tie in method over the features of a loose hackle throat. Perhaps the length would be better on a larger hook...

As always, lots to improve and details to watch for in future flies. The eternal learning process continues in earnest...

Comments welcome if you have any...
