This one is more than beautiful, all over. I would be very proud if it were my deed.

Hank,

Some folks didn't recognize Ron Eagle Elk and REE 04419 as being the same person. Forum Ghillie, that fine wet fly fisherman and all around gentleman, revived my original screen name.

PS, FG, the bill for that shameless plug is in the mail.

Thanks for the post and pic, lovely tie.

Re: Roger Fogg, I have a couple of his books and they are great reads and sources of info. Highly recommend his writings. He used to have an internet site but haven't seen it for quite awhile. Glad I copied / downloaded his info / articles.
