Beautiful ties, Wayne. The aftershaft feather fly looks like you were channeling your inner Jack Gartside. I would fish them all.

RonR, Those worked great for me on the Selway and Lochsa last time I was there. With those glass beads, you can't drop your back cast on a gravel bar. Don't ask how I know.
