Nice work! I haven't tied any flies for years. Maybe I forgot how but I still have a lot of material to start again. I think my bottle of head cement has dried up!:D

You ought to get back at it. I tie most every day. I enjoy ty'n about as much as I do Q'n. Some day I hope to spend more time cast'n flies.

I haven't tied in years. I'm sure I was never an artiste like you. I never had a teacher, I just read and copied what I had used that worked. I guess I was good enough to fool a few fish though.

The Coachman I used to tied showed a lot more red on the body. Was I doing it wrong?

Do you ever fish flies for bass or bluegill? How about bonefish?

No you were not wrong. There are a myriad of forms the Coachman can take. That one is just my favorite. I tie some for folks that have more red floss than peacock herl,some that have two bands of floss rather than one. And of course the Leadwing Coachman ,a wet fly,that has no band.

Very nice work. Have not had the flyrod out in years. Might get excited and throw some poppers for bass this summer.
