Fly Tying: A Brace of Wets

I love the Starling feather for wrapping a wing on a small (16-22) wet fly. I tied up just a couple wets, as time allowed. It has been a hit and miss proposition of late. I usually start about now and tie in earnest into the Spring. The below flies are tied on a size 18 hook/14/0 thread.

I took some pics and that allowed me to continue my learning process with Lightroom 3. I maybe did a touch better, because of Wayne Mumford’s ~ WillFishForWork advice, so I need to be a bit more exacting on lighting, white balance, taking notes re settings and in the processing of the pic, staying consistent (not sure how to do presets, etc.)

The body material for the top two flies was from Kevin Compton at Performance Flies of Cleveland,  Ohio. Also, note the difference in the top two flies re a thorax to splay the Starling feather and no thorax. I used dyed peacock herl from Nature’s Spirit.
