    Very nice! I have a couple of those in my Wheatley. I only use them when fishing Gert Canyon. When fishing Macks Canyon I use a Max Canyon or a Blue Max... ��

    Oooooh. Bet that's got a sexy wiggle in the water.

    +1 for the Perrine fly box. I've got a couple and love them.

    Sharp eye picking out that Perrine Scott!

    I agree on the wiggle, I use those rubber / latex strands on my bunny fur sculpins. I don't know that it makes them better but it makes me believe they work better....

    Nice tying as always Mike!

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
