Superb. Maybe your best yet (and that’s saying something).

Don Bastion (Forgotten Flies) quality wet fly.

The Tomah Joe has always been my favorite winged wet/streamer fly. Such a classy pattern. Well tied Scott.

I used to tie this quite a bit as a small #10 streamer pattern for fishing. Fished it a lot. It is not only a beautiful pattern but very effective.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

nice looking fly. I'd put one like that in a shadowbox.

You have really shown us some beautifully tied wet flies. The flies, and your photos are a lesson in attention to detail and precision. Well done, sir!
