Picture of the Day
Hare's Ear

Maybe it's just me but when Carlos offered me a comb today, I said I was going for the Shipman's look. I know that some people think it's an art to make your flies scruffy, "suggesting life". But it's not like that at all; it's simply how I am. It's why I think "public" hair is possibly the perfect flytying material.
This particular fly is of course very sexy, and it's a dry fly (which may surprise you - think Lake Olives and gink). Body: hare. Rib: gold mylar. Thread: yellow. If you're struggling to get "the look" then try letting go.
