Good looking flies Ard, thanks for giving me MORE stuff to think about
Actually you did give me an idea of what I can do with a bag of pheasant feathers I've had laying around for a few years--SCULPINS!
I too have been logging what time I have at the bench in preparation for an upcoming Salmon trip. Sometimes you've just gotta sit down and get ready even though a wet line is the preferred alternative.
Thanks for posting, I enjoy seeing your flies.
