Hot off the bench...

I have had success recently on size #6 and #8 attractor patterns - namely the Chubby - and I have had them on my mind lately. Dry flies have never been a strong point in my tying but I would like that to change.

Here are my first attempts at tying the Stimulator:

Feel free to comment regarding improvements or suggestions.


P.S. Thanks to Hopper Juan for the stellar tutorial!

P.P.S. Don't Google Image "Stimulator!"

Scott- Thise look great! I'd hit that!
Good job. I wouldn't change a thing on those. I would buy some Water Shed to put on those to keep them up. You should be able to find it in a local shop. It's a waterproofing agent and I use it on all my dry flies.

These look fantastic-- no improvements necessary-- not bad for a first shot!
