I'm gonna give the nod to mudbug for his wyatt's deer hair emerger. this versatile pattern can be tied to imitate nearly any flying bug.

disqualified jason for stretching the rules, as it obviously took three separate skeins of floss for his body...beautiful fly nevertheless.

jojackie's red midge was sweet as was the chamois.

care to dispute my decision, state yer case.

Foul! Foul! Now you say we can cheat just as long as we feel it is justified! If using a bead is 1 material but using 4-5 other beads but in a different color is still 1 material I thought the idea was to keep it simple.... or was this to see who is simple minded! All is fun though. Nice ties to all.

It may have been 3 strands of floss but it is only 1 material, just different colors. So he only had 2 materials total.

I think everyone tied nice stuff and I liked seeing how people tackled the problem.

Again, I think all who played are the winners just for playing.

Not in some gay let's not score the kids soccer game so everyone wins way, but because we all got off our buts and tried something.

I look forward to these things and feel sorry for those that tie and don't play.

I admit that when Jason asked and got the answer he did my first thought was "Crap, why didn't I ask that" I would have loved to go with a different color for the thorax. Still, had Jason won it this week I would have been OK. It's a cool tie, and my own fault for not asking.

I'm falling in love with this fly. It so simple and buggy looking while staying slim.

I think the version I tied is called the DHE 2.0. Tied without trying to hide the rear cut part of the deer hair under the dubbing and just leaving it cut on top of the dubbing to look like a split wing case.

Here is a good video. My biggest change is that I try to flatten out the thread so it creates flat spots in the dubbing.

So was the goal to be creative or to use the least amount of materials? I'm confused............
