Thanks, I haven't been doing leatherwork as long as some may think. I do have many years of experience in many other art mediums and most of those skills apply to leatherworking. Still need to build up my figure carving tool assortment as I still feel limited by what current tools I have. I'm getting good results and sometimes less is more as it applies in this case. Chris

Thanks for the comments.

I'm working on a split underwater scene with a Rainbow Trout about to take a dry fly pattern.

I have not posted in a while and just realized I didn't add the finished photo of the classic salmon fly design.

Chriscraft,

Unbelievable work. Your stitching is pretty nice too, and really adds to the piece.

And can you tell us where you got your Hermann Oak labels?

Thanks.

About those HO hang tags, they were not easy to acquire. Turns out they are only given from the tannery when one orders premium A grade leather. I just started ordering direct from HO tannery a few months ago.

Another Dry Fly pattern. I really enjoy tapping these one-of-a-kind fishing lures.

How does one go about ordering direct from the tannery, do you have to place large orders?
