For the non-tying, non-fly fisher, the flies shown are generally called a ‘wet fly’ and presented subsurface from just below the water’s surface and deeper. For the tier…these were tied on a size 14 stout hook, but the body was reduced in size for a smaller fly on a bigger hook. The ribbing should have been a bit finer in thickness, but the segmentation does pop with the lighter colored ribbing. How does my life line look?
