    Here's a quick pic of the Alaska Maryann pattern; version 1. I like working with Polar Bear hair; it's got a certain translucency to is that's unique in terms of what I've worked with for fly tying hair materials before.

    I also like working with the Partridge Bartleet hooks; they're nice looking all by themselves; even without dressing; something that has me thinking about minimalist flies and their effectiveness, but perhaps more on that later.

    This was the last fly that I tied in 2009!



    As I was telling Ard today, the next version will probably have golden pheasant tail and veiling (red) and a simple married wing along with the Polar Bear Hair. The variegated bone-colored cotton thread body seems to be working OK; at least for the time being.

    Well I don't usually post pictures of the fly I am sending but hey what the heck.
    This fly was a take-off from the Mallard and Claret. I called it the Mallet. It was also my first attempt at spey flies.
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    I agree, Kerry. That's one very, very nice tie! I'm looking forward to getting that one wet.

    Ard, would you post a picture of your Alaskan Lady pattern? Thanks.

    Thank you, I appreciate your opinions and I also hope I can remember how the heck I tied it!

    Happy New Year! The first set of flies arrived today, from Joni.

    Very nice box (I hope that the rest of you can do as well - )!



    And what was inside was just as special; 12 great looking bombers, with recipes and an attached pic!



    Lady and gentlemen, we are definitely raising the bar here!

    Thanks Joni. For the rest of us.... only 2 months left!
