Re: video - Lil' Dorothy

Lance,

Re: video - Lil' Dorothy

Just so everyone knows, here is the original, tied by me, photo by Hans some time back. Again, Hans, it's like a shot in the arm of good medicine to see you tie this. Thanks again!

Re: Good Words from Dave Hughes

Hi Lance,
That fly is simply beautiful in every way, at least to my eyes, and I'll wager, to fish eyes as well.
