Norm, Howdy;

I'm sure the trouts will appreciate it for it's intended use
it just invites and welcomes. Gorgeous, indeed.

That is the most comfortable lookin' fly I've seen.
Looks like if it were the size of a Queen sized bed
I'd want to lay on it and sure I'd get a sound sleep .

The tapered body is so precise and tight looking, and the legs are superb.

Nicely done and professional looking.
