Extended body Damsel

Here’s a pattern that’s been producing quite well for me this Spring. YouTube link below for the tying video tutorial.

Nice tie Stanton!
If only I had a penny for every time I thought about fishing.

That is really nice.  It is a much more prettier version of a similar fly I use for damsels which uses thread-knotted marabou (instead of ostrich) and partridge.

You have a great talent for tying (I think I have told you that before - if not, I'm saying it now!) and do a very nice step by step video.  I think I much prefer the still image voice over presentation you do as it allows me when playing it back to better 'pause' on the image I want to look at when tying as opposed to the the real-time tying videos (the latter are also good too as they demonstrate technique very nicely in certain cases where important).

You might be inspiring me to do some vids!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Thanks Gord and Chris.. I appreciate the support! Chris, you should do some tying vids! Be great to get some vids and tying patterns back up here on the forum.. maybe some of those suggestive river nymphs???  ;)
