Ray,. That's awesome. I love the effect of the open turns off the un stripped peacock quill herl. Just a beautiful tie.

Ray,
I am speechless.
Hard to decide which I like better, the photographs, or the fly.

Ray, I tied one of these this morning and took it to a small brook that is loaded with wild brookies ! I would post a pic but a dozen Brookies reduced it to a bare hook ! Thanks so much for this pattern , back to the tying room tonight.
