Want to give a special thanks to attackone for giving me such good insight on euro nymphing and tying these. This is my first try just getting a feel for what i am getting into. Woven flies have a certain beauty to them. I am working at getting the proper set ups. These were all hand woven with no tools. I will be adding tools, and reducing the strands of embroidery thread i will be tying to get a cleaner look.

Let me know what you think.











Look for a lot cleaner looking flies coming up. I like to tie these even though each fly raises my blood pressure at the current time without having the proper set up.

I want to shorten the leggs and antenna. as well. I am not sure it needs 3 legs I think 2 would do the trick

The polish weave and cobra weave make great flies. Another one to try is the over hand knot. Use different colors and alternate which color is on top when tying a regular overhand knot. It makes a jagged line down the body of the fly.
