Yes, gentlemen, after a few weeks of struggling with thread(s), lead wire(s), copper wire, multiple types and shades of dubbing (dubbings?), different types and sizes of hooks, Krystal something (looks like a Christmas tree garland for pixies), semi-successful whip finishes, chain bead eyes, beads, dumbbells, chenille(s), Super Glue, multiple rum punches, and helpful suggestions from this forum's gurus, these exquisite creations are here for your viewing pleasure:

Clockwise from the top:

BHKSLWC (bead head, krystal something, lead wire, chenille) nymph.

2 CWR( copper wire ribbed) Czech nymphs

CC (copper Clouser). Can Clousers have bead chain eyes? If not, then this is a BCECPC (bead chain eyes, copper, pseudo Clouser. This jewel was "designed" as a quick sinking lead, top, first (pick a term) fly for a tandem rig.

KSLWC (Krystal something, lead wire, chenille) nymph.

The doc tells me I'm not supposed to be wading the streams until the New Year. Probably just as well; with flies like these the fish really don't have much of a chance.

Yeah, Robert, you're right. You certainly would vacuum the stream with those killers, and then there wouldn't be any fish left. You have once again proved that your benign side is a real gem among sporting gentlemen.

Tying bead chain eyes on a Clouser is fine.

Stay on the mend and keep up the tying practice. Lots of tying practice.

Yer Pal,
Streamer

Robert,

Lets cut thru the shit. Glad to see you spinning the feathers and dub -- dead serious !!!!

You have miles to go B/4 you arrive. At some juncture, you will have to decide if you are going to be a presentation tyer or an innovative tyer.
Plumbob , Caleb,etc are presentation tyers. Colin is in the decision stage ( All tie well in both areas). I will fish with confidence any fly that those 3 guys tie. !!! But will their flys out fish what comes out of my vise ??

You may have seen me say that I have authored 100 flys .. But 93 of them are in the trash bin. FACT !!

This board is totally loaded with bodacious tyers !!!! You need to stand behind one of them for a short spell !!! If you stand behind Streamer for 1 hour, you will know more about moving bait than 98% of all fly rod guys on this planet, I'm telling you cold ----- LISTEN :!: :!:

Geez--- they look about the same as my first ones. Takes time ,practice , and a will to improve. The one thing I'll tell you is what I've told every new tyer. Try to tie an existing pattern, don't go off on your own at this stage. When you do your own thing its tough to see improvement in your skills because you have nothing really to compare it with. When you take a pattern out of a book you can keep tying it till it looks like the picture. Keep at it.

There you go :) You off to a fine start. Agree copy folks with establish patterns to get your skill set down.

Not enough paper in the house to write down all I have learned from these folks. You have a support crew here that's worth it's weight in gold and will save much time.

Be sure to attend the next S. Charlotte Lyin' & Tyin' - maybe sometime after the first of the year when the weather is too crappy to actually go fishing.

Overbrook said he would come to the next one -- but I can't get him to call me back about fishing tomorrow so don't hold your breath.
