That may be the finest example I've ever seen. Super clean dressing.

I'd still ruin it by fishing it! :twisted: ;)

Wow, what a great looking fly! I like the effect if the badger with the black head and the terrific job with the floss. What type of floss did you use?

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

I fish this fly a lot, but mine never, even on my best days, look that good. I'm like Ray. I'd fish it in a heartbeat.
