I'm starting this thread as an overflow from the "Pheasant Tail" thread. Just wondering what patterns you tyers have difficulty with and have given up on. For me, it's pheasant tails and scuds. Don't know why, they aren't that hard but I can't seem do make them look right. I call mine "mutants" that I don't have confidence in to actually use in my precious fishing time--who knows, they might actually work well. I can do tiny emergers all day, but these two particular patterns just kill me.
