Simi Seal Damsel's

Here are a few Simi seal damsels nymphs I have been working on. If an admin can, mabe we can move this to Open box if you feel they are worthy lol. Both of these flys are based on some idea's shared while tying with Andy Burk. Infact the second damsel nymph is his fly almost to a T. The only thing I have done differenty is add a Simi seal tail instead of a verniel tail. This tailing I am doing will add alot more range of color then using vernils. Also the tail will have a great action, it moves alot easyer then vernil. Hope you all like it.

This ones made to fish with a floating line and is weighted:



This one is made for the surface or to use with a sinking line:

Those are great.

Might I make a suggestion? Tie the eyes on the opposite side of the hook. This will make the hook ride up and snag less.

Ya I was thinking about that to but I have tied that one to fish with floating line so I have more control on keeping it from snaging by moving my idicator. If I was going to fish it with a sinking line I would totally flip that hook. On a side note I emailed the pictures to Andy Burk and he loves the flys!
