#11. Oops Gill

Oops! I thought I messed it up. In my attempt to creat a pan fish pattern which has a flat body profile, I toyed around with a reversed tied technique to creat that effect. I thought I goofed up at first, but after applying some adheresive at the base of the head that rooster-tail head stayed. So, it was an oops bluegill, "lOops Gill".

That was #11 and one more to go.

Those are sharp! I guess I need to engage the other side of my brain and start creating.

Tom I am looking forward to spending time next Saturday tying. Thanks for volunteering. I just need a little guidance.

Since it was a blooper, how about calling it a "BloopsGill?" ;)

Good suggestion Tim. My wife also suggested "Mousse Head" as in hairstyling Mousse.

Thanks Mark. Also, looking forward to a fun tying session next week.

 

I will be sorry when it is over.

Thanks Mike. I thought after the next one, I'll take a break and let other members have opportunities to post (Tim is starting out great). I still have a few flies in reserve, so I'll post from time to time.
