My philosophy on fly tying is to tie flies that resemble the naturals (food items/insects).  This resemblance is more suggestive than an exact imitation which makes for a fine blend between the art of tying and the science of entomology. 

A photo of the natural accompanies each fly pattern below. I hope you can see the similarity that I see.
