I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Would not be surprised if this is a killer. Beautifully impressionistic.

Great looking flies Carl. Really like the proportions.
That back strip looks perfect.
Have you brought it over after tying in the body and ribbed with the wire?
How hard can it be?

Yeah, tied in at tail area, pulled forward and then tied down with the wire rib.
