Nicely done, Scott. Don Bastian would approve.

Very nice, Scott. It's a great sea run cutthroat fly. I've had a few incidental hook ups on winter run steel head as well, using the Fish Hawk.

Someone who'd never tied this style went looking for more details. He found this: Fish Hawk SBS – by ScottP.
