Fly 10 - Jungle Hornet

Jungle Hornet
5x7, soft pastel


The Jungle Hornet is a grub style fly.  Tied by Monte Smith, this little guy looks like a bug I hope to never encounter!   Grub style salmon files are among the earliest of the various types of flies used in the 19th century.  

And that’s all I know about that!

  1. I think your Challenge idea is by far the most original of all that I've seen. And so well executed - even though I would have no clue if they actually looked like you have portrayed! Lovely job Cindy! Gillian

    1. Thanks so much Gillian! It's been a lot of fun so far...along with a lot of research.
