I just like the looks of a sparsely tied partridge feather. The do as well!

As do I. Seductively skimpy fly and sexy rod. Cool handle. Did you make that rod?

No sir. That is a Classic Era Heddon #35, light trout action. The Classic Era was considered 1933-1938. Possibly a 96-year-old rod! Like Capt. Gus said in Lonesome Dove: “The older the violin, the sweeter the music.”

Stephen,

Is the rod/fish picture from your recent trip to the Lower Mt Fork?

I like the reel, and the fly as well.

Ken-

Yes it is. Those Limerick hooks did a good job of hooking on the swing. Looking forward to fishing this weekend!
