I agree with Roadkill and Letumgo! Edmonds and Lee are smiling down upon you right now and we are all grins with the beauty you have created! So well done on all levels! You certainly know how to pick a quality hackle for the task at hand!
Simple and beautiful! And, as we all know, deadly effective out on your favorite waters!
Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.

That pattern saved my bacon late last Summer. I did not use silk, but the bastardized version was impressive.

You have skill in tying and photographing.

I love that book, so much fun tying from it. I spend too much time with the orange and the green, I'm going to tie up half a dozen of these and devote a little more time to them. Beautiful tie!
