I routinely show fly patterns here and most often in a macro format. My intent is to show the fly’s proportions, materials and the good and bad outcomes that the macro lens never fails to gather. I thought this time I would also include a shot of the fly pattern shown in the macro shot also in a pose with a U.S. dime in order to show scale. The hook size is more relevent to the tier.
The dime shot gives one a good idea of the actual size of these big macro flies. The hook sizes are good references for the fly fisher, but the non tier has a better reference with the coin perhaps.
