Here are the few dry flies I make and use on a daily basis. They are simple, solid and the ones that look like nothing are the most effective ;)

Nice looking flies. What kind of hackle is that on the second fly?

It is the hair of hare taken from the back of the animal. This material is often used especially by French fishermen, it is very effective. In my region, the northwest of Switzerland, we use CDC more often.

Nice looking flies! What is your technique for what appears to be only CDC fiber tips on both sides of the spinner patterns?

Those are very nice flies! The fish in your neck of the world must be very selective, since your flies are impeccable!

Great looking flies! I'll bet that 3rd fly, the emerger, is deadly. I love CDC and use it often but it's very hard to keep floating after a fish or two - regardless of how well it's cleaned and treated afterwards.
