What a beauty of a fly. I like the body colors on it.

Tom - Flies like this make me conflicted. Would I fish it, or frame it? The wing and body work are such fine craftsmanship, but it is equally tempting to fish this fly.

Another fine example of piscatorial perfection...

X-nice tie .....That pattern works very well on the Beaverkill, Willowemoc, and Lackawaxen in size 14 and 16.

Awesome!

I've been trying to research which winged wet flies might be good for (shallow) lakes...Which I'm not accustomed to fishing. Any suggestions would be appreciated :)
