Fly Tying: Lil’ Black Stone (Improved?)

I borrowed upon the suggestions of Normand Frechette at flytyingoldandnew (see his comments from my previous post, yesterday) and I noticed a definite improvement. Now this time, I did use the most ultra fine wire ribbing I had and that did change the appearance and did reduce the segmentation contrast I was trying for. However, the tail was much improved, and the ribbing wound without displacing the tail. What you might be thinking well duh, you stopped using rope for ribbing. Actually, that is the small Wapsi wire ribbing (ultra small would have been better). I resorted to a finer ribbing because the pics made the ribbing look so thick. To the eye, the ribbing actually looks fine. That darn macro actually is a help and a hindrance for ‘impressionistic’ types (read less disciplined or is it more free spirited?) like moi. Fly needs to be slightly more robust. Nope, Hans will never snap my flies for Danica.
