Scott,
That is one drop dead gorgeous fly! The Tenkara style of fly patterns and the entire concept is fascinating to me! This will be my next move in fly fishing and tying! Meanwhile, your March Brown Emerger helps to prompt me along toward that end! Your patterns are excellent and I want to encourage you to keep up the high quality workmanship that you are famous for!

That is spectacular, Steve. Would love to have Misako see this.

WOW! Fantastic fly! Makes me want to raid your fly box and head straight for the stream. :twisted:

I'd steal your flies any day!

Superb! At first I thought the hackle was hare guard hairs.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
