So, here is a smattering of the flies I've tied pretty much since March 1st.

Great Ceasar's Ghost - A Mike Martinek Pattern
Super Ghost - another Martinek pattern, clearly inspired by Joseph Stickney's Supervisor streamer
Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear size 7
Adirondack Size 7
Colonel Fuller Size 7, strikingly similar in color to the Mickey Finn
Lake George Size 7
3 of 6 Trout fin wet flies - Bergman Fontinalis, Fontinalis Fin, and Don Bastians Original Olive Trout Fin, all size 7.
The three remaining are Brook Fin, Brookie Fin and Trout Fin, which I'm in the process of tying.
