Tying for NZ

Leaving for New Zealand this afternoon!!!

I understand that exact fly pattern isn't nearly as improtant as presentation and just having a good buggy fly.  Naturally I tied up a bunch of my favorite Deschutes bugs.  Here is most of what I have been tying...

Purple Haze, sizes 12 and 14

Purple Para Wulff, sizes 12 and 14

Pheasant Tail, tungsten beadhead sizes 12, 14, 16

Inspired by Ken Moorish's Anato May, tungsten beadhead sizes 14, 16

Same fly in olive hare dubbing

I'll post photos while I am there if I can.  If not than for sure when I back.

Thanks for reading,
