That is a jaw dropper there for sure. My gosh, I have no words for the beauty. There just are none. Flawless beauty, that's all I got. :mrgreen:

Thanks Kelly L. I'm glad you like the fly :)

Donald-
Hmmm a softie aye? Thanks for the heads up on the Scottish meaning. seeing I'm a born in Germany Aussie living in London (There's no hope!) I think I'll knowingly carry on calling them softie's without feeling too worried about it :oops: ;)
Oh & btw Kars.....he does have "big ears."
Willowhead-
Oh oh, you have confirmed my worst nightmare! I was hoping he didn't, so as not to offend the Jedi Master! They say time heals all wounds, at least I hope so :cry:

Ray-
Jar Jar Binks! Come on Ray wouldn't you rather be known for having hairy ears, bad grammar, smelling like you live in a swamp than being completely annoying? Your stuck with the Yoda title buddy, even if your wife agrees for entirely different reasons (I like her, she's feisty and makes me laugh). :lol:

I'm glad you shared Muz's flies with the troops, thanks for making me aware of the link. I wasn't aware of it earlier.

Me too. That is wonderful to see. Cool fly.

Glad your becommin' a regular here Kars.......are you refering to Muzzy, the Salmon fly tyer from up in the northeast? The guy is one of my favorite tyers on the planet, and a very nice cat. i've had the chance to watch him tye a number of times and got to hang with him quite a bit at the Somerset and Danbury shows. He's got such a great eye..... ;) Hopefully you'll get to come over here and hang some time. i have a Salmon fly of his framed here you'd love to see. 8-)

ooppss :oops: , oh well, i went and double checked to be sure............ :lol: ........i remember those flies from a while back.
Well, if you ever get a chance to check out Muzzy's (Ed Muzzerole[sp?]) flies, definately do so. :)

Alright, you guys settle down. :D What I meant was, I don't have the right words for the way I wanted to express my thoughts about the fly/flies. If I say, that's all I got...it means I wish I had more to say, but there just aren't the right descriptive words coming to my mind. If I say it's a beauty..but that didn't seem a high enough compliment, then I will say something else like the above statement that Mark was teasing me about. Carry on. :P

I just reread my statement. I was thinking about it, and typing at the same time. Plus who knows how many flies I had seen previous to that one. That actually was a very high compliment coming from me...very high indeed. :D
