Reel Seats, Streamer Flies

I have just received a couple of reel seats which will be used on my new glass rods. The hardware is modeled after Walton Powell seats, with an up-lock design and exposed grip slot. The inserts are satin finished curly walnut and buckeye burl. They will go nicely with honey-yellow and brown glass blanks.

We got more snow over the weekend in MN, so I tied some more streamers... The weather was perfect for fly tying. Pictured below are the Royal Coachman with the Spey twist and the Hollow Fly on the top of my old "Striper Killer" hip flask.
