Bill - What thread did you use? Did you manage this with silk?

Simply gorgeous!

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

Ray ~ The thread on this fly is Pearsall's Gossamer #10 ash, although the recipe in the book reference that Carl sent to me calls for darkly waxed #9a grey.

William and Bill,
I am stunned at how beautiful each of your patterns are! They both are real fish catchers and some beautiful photo's from each of you would be super-duper. Please include also the fish that took the patterns no matter what the girth.
Signed,
Garth
Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

Ditto.

I'd missed this one. William, Bill, these are stunning.
