It is nice indeed. Tomas send one Beetle to me. He asked me to try them and I promised before I saw them. They look too good to use, but I will fish with these flies next summer.

Thanks for the comment Rick.

Hei Rick,
The beetle didn't take too long at all, it was around a half hour job. I tie flies that take alot longer, as for fishing with them - hell yes! flies are to be fished with! only some of the flies I tie I will set aside for photographs and reference to remind me how to replicate. If a really good fly can catch you a really good fish then it was worth all the work. There's plenty more where that came from gentlemen.
All the best.
