Scott,
This recent series of flies, especially the hair-wings, just knock me out. They are so beautifully tied, with thoughtful materials and proportions. Thank you for taking the time to share them with us.

Scott,
An incredibly good looking pattern! Ironically, I was just given some coyote fur lately from a co-worker! I am looking at your pattern and I am looking at the fur.....Yea, I can do this! Thanks for tying such beautiful and creative patterns!

What a gorgeous fly! I'd love to fish this pattern. I imagine it would work great as a wet fly, and as a "damp" fly (lightly dress the wing with floatant to fish as an emerger pattern).

Tyed with your trademark perfection. ;)
