Alan - That is my kinda fly! I’d fish that pattern in a blink of an eye!

Great presentation (photo) too.

Nice. Some of those are going in the brook trout box. What sizes do you tie them in?

Oh my gosh fellows! These patterns are stunning! I love how they literally glow in the light! They both would go well on the menu of my little speckled darlings below the waters surface!
Absolutely wonderful guys and so perfectly tied! Bravo!

Thanks Dana!
It's still a tough thing to find a few moments to set down at my lap top and especially to comb the best forum in the world! I can remember only one other summer that I ran the weedeater more than this past one! This includes keeping the two ponds on our farm slicked back! Plants have really grown well this past season including the weeds and undesirable grasses! These, and a thousand other little jobs......I'm ready to fish again! About one month from now, I have a week off (vacation) and plan to play catch up for a summer of "loss"!
Thanks friend for encouraging me and checking in with me!
