    Gotta go with #5. Looks like a winner for WNY in the Great Lake Tribs. Tough choice though. All are top ties.

    4 is a beautiful fly, well done. I would use 1 more, in a salt water version, but 4 is tops. Randy

    Nunber 4 gets my vote.

    — Wade Schlichenmayer

    The 4th fly is my choice. It looks more like a live insect than many real ones. If it landed on my table I don’t know if I would run or try to shoo it away.
