Something for the wall.


I saw this idea on a blog that I follow( Niklas Dahlin-Flytier ) and thought it was a nice thing to have on the wall, perfect downstairs in the workshop. Some Old frames that I found in the attic, an image from last summer, and some famous soft hackled patterns ...... thought it became quite nice.
Made two pieces, one for myself and the other goes to another soft hackled fan ...... think he'll like it.

  1. Hi.

    I notice in the snipe and purple the thread is a little pink. If you have a job finding the proper thread I will post you some from England. I'm sure the trout don't mind anyway. Other wise some wonderful tying and great spiders.

    Regards.

    1. Hello Richard.
      Yes I agree, its a little to pink. The thread I'm using is Pearsall's Gossamer pink.
      I think a little colour adjustment is the right ting to do.

    Must give credit to my wife, she is working in the graphics industry.
    I attached the flies with special tape.

  5. As George said, excellent looking spiders. What hooks are they? Are they the Partridge spider hooks?
