Stuart: superb flies, man! I just love those.

ttbloom: that is an excellent first! Hell, that's just a great fly. The materials and proportions are perfect. I wish I could crank them out like that.

as usual planettrout, great stuff.

That teal and silver variant is awesome, la jolla. love it. and thanks for doing the swap!
