That looks more like a Bergman than a genuine Bergman!! Excellent, Bill!

Bill,
This particular fly is destined to become a museum piece! It should be added to the hundreds of others in this category that you have tied! Thank you Bill for doing such quality work! It gives all of us great pleasure just to look upon this beauty! We are all waiting and wanting to know what's next from your vice?
Excellent, Excellent stuff Bill!

beautiful wet, Bill. You do tie the most beautiful specimens of these older wet flies. I have a couple very similar to this in an old loaded fly box that I bought from Bob Selb. Not as nice as this though. :D
