Agreed! Subtle and elegant in its construction. Extra fine!

Do you have Sawada’s wet fly book? Nice book. He uses some really exotic materials.

Ray,

I do not; pulled the recipe from his site. He does use some interesting materials (some of which wouldn't be legal here), and ties some beautiful flies.
