Hey everyone, as a new fly tier who is learning stuff every single day, I love seeing what everyone else is tying. We have some incredibly talented tiers in this forum. I thought it would be a cool idea to make a thread that everyone can share there latest ties! Hope everyone will share with us what they have been tying! Lets see those flies!! Heres my cone headed bugger. Little messy, first time using a cone head!  Cheers

Head on that first one is almost perfect! Be careful not to get wraps behind the wing.
