    Default Silver Doctor

    This is the pattern from Fisher - Rod and River (1892) the only deviation being embossed tinsel for the body instead of flat. This is my favorite of the silver doc patterns.

    Tied for a client (who later decided to pass on the fly) on a vintage 4/0 Allcocks Sproat hook.

    I assume when you told him it took 3 hours to tie....he balked. Beautiful job.
