You're a kindred spirit, Scott. I admire your tying and your tutorials. Nice attention to detail. Well done, in every respect.

Thanks for sharing.

Every time I see a fly tied with Guinea, I remind myself that I need to get me some of that.
I still! don't have any....
Scott,
A wonderful pattern, and a beautiful tie. Thanks a bunch.

I've still got some from the fly tying kit my parents bought me in 1964. I keep promising myself that someday I'll find a use for it. (It looks nice on this fly, though.)
