Scott - Your tying is very efficient. Very well thought out and attractive fly. Well done.

Thanks for another excellent sbs.

Scott, I keep coming back to this one. Sorry I did say so earlier. The extended wire tag and the ribbing is something I haven't seen like this. It's an interesting combination of of the thread and wire body. Thanks for your thoughtful and very high quality sbs's. This is another excellent pattern.
