These look like the real deal to me, William. Nicely tied and expertly photographed.

Exceptional! Nice to see you behind the vice and lens again. This will make a nice addition to your website, too.

I think Frank would be pleased. Very nicely done.

Thanks all. I am still infatuated by this fly. I sit at the vise without a plan and it's the first thing that comes to mind. These work great and sink quick. As a point fly where a soft hackle is on a dropper these are often taken on the swing. I just like tying them.
