First ties for Alaska

The trip is still months off, but I'm getting excited.  Shown below are the first four flies I've tied.  These were recommended by the lodge owners.

The Battle Creek

Polar Shrimp

Green Butt Skunk

Pink  Butt Skunk

This was the first time I tied any of these patterns.  They sure are colorful.  I'll tie several of each pattern then try a few different ones.  If you look close at these, you'll discover one of the reasons I sometimes call myself the ugly fly tyer.  At least they usually catch fish.
