Two questions:

1) What was the dressing for the William Mills & Sons' Grizzly King pattern shown above?

2) How did the grade "gut"?

1) Your guess is as good as mine
2) Your guess is as good as mine

In other words--I have no bloody idea and would have to research both. I'll bring some of the Mills flies north this spring and you can try them out. You'll need a tin with felt pads to soak the gut though, you have one already, don't you? And a fly box for carrying snelled flies? Like Dana's well-organized tangle?
