You're being too modest, Alan; post up those other pics. Beautiful ties.

Let’s see the rest Alan-I couldn’t help but notice that one was tied up eye, and the other was tied on a down eye hook. Do you have any personal preference or is this just the way they came out of the box ? :lol:

Very nice ties, Alan. Looks like one is on a turned up eye and the other on a turned down eye - which do you prefer? I kind of like the look of the TUE.

The upturned eye hook is fine wire and the fly fishes colse to the surface. The other hook is heavier and gets the fly down.

Matt I prefer the lighter hook, the reason is because it works close to the surface.
