December 18, 2006: Excellent tied flies
It's art, is what it is. It's a fine craft and should be celebrated. The amazing detail on the wasp includes a hidden hook; not the tradition to hide it, not really necessary, but an interesting take on the business end.
And I think it's hilarious that he has actually fly-tied flies.
Be sure to visit Neatorama for more mind-boggling items.

You know they're good when the gross you out even though you know they are fake.

Wow, these are amazing... now what I would like to see is how well they perform versus commercially available flies... A lot of time, lures are designed to catch the fisherperson's eye, not necessarily the fish's.

I'd be diving in all the time to retrieve a snag.

Bet one of them costs more than a ton of fish.

bump. If you've ever tried to tie your own, you get a whole new appreciation for these. They are amazingly well done!
