Off Topic--As the Adams turcrow flys

Here is one of the flies I tied with some crow down. I used some of the gray down as dubbing for the body
then used a crow hackle feather to mix with the brown. Some turkey feather for the tail and she is good to go.
I call it a Turcrow Adams.

Don't mind the shoddy tying job. This is probably about the 10th. fly I have ever tied.
After looking at the picture I cut it down just a bit to reduce it's profile.

I know absolutely nothing about fly tying or fishing, but I think it looks really good. That hobby is probably like everything else, your 100th one will make this one look awful. It is the way it evolves. I look at my first decoys and cringe. Keep at it. :thumbsup:

Nice fly and use for the crow!

Ive mentioned it in the past, but have not yet done it...I want to make a fly using only hair/fur and feathers of animals I have taken here in NH.
