Default Sunshine Su;

By now you have guessed that I just make this up as I go. I tie flies and then each year I go to see what will catch a fish. This tie is meant to be fished in the riffles and I know right where to test it. I understand that not all our members have either all the materials that I use in some of my creations or have reached the level of tying where these would be fun to produce. I post them to the list to inspire you to experiment and expand your fly tying horizons. I hope it's working.
