Sorry about this.....I don't know how I missed this one! It's a beauty Bill! It has got to be a honor to tie with Darbee hackles just like when Lance sent me the brown mohair samples that belonged to his dad Pete! I was very nervous about getting it right but, I had such good guidance from both of you, then the honor part showed through! I am still humbled and I can see that you have done the Darbee hackle justice with your excellent work on this pattern and so many others! Your flies look so "alive"!
Excellent, Excellent work Bill!

Doug - you really hit the nail on the head with that comment......there’s a different feeling, or more of a special connection that I get when using vintage items like the old Bergman hooks, Darbee hackle, etc. it’s one of the reasons that I collect and give away those type of items...... it’s the connection!
