Fly tying and patterns sharing thread

the Green on Green on Green Bead Head Pheasant Tail:
I thought about it and, If you want the PERFECT profile:

when I started tying these I'd only grab 3/4 barbs of legs on that last step and pull em forward over the shell back and throw a couple wraps to lock em down in the direction I wanted, repeat on the opposite side. clip the rest close.

same with the tail, if you want a divided tail with two barbs on each side, grab the center barbs and trim em close.

sometimes profile is the key, sometimes stomping on the fly 3-4 times works too. thought I'd add the option.




New Red-Butt Terminator pattern for steelhead or salmon! Love it! Bill Ezell in Hermiston came up with this one a few weeks ago and it has been killing the steelhead on the Umatilla River....



Heres the first complete fly I've tied besides the beginner Willy worms and cream nymphs. I know not a new pattern should just like to here what you guys thinks. Please and thanks.

Tube flies suck... They never work! ;) There are some trout patterns that you tie with tubes.... BE CREATIVE!!!
