Classy. I love how the highlights in Red Grouse fibers harmonizes with the body color.

I am drawn to the exquisite body work! I like the way it looks....like a classic wet fly body from the past! Very nicely done! We appreciate your frequent postings! They are fantastic!

Thanks Doug but I’m a beginner when it comes to soft hackle though this one came out nice. Love
the gamebird feathers. I like the karma feel about them.
