Default Char Fin; A Salmon Fly

I had two of these flies and one got sort of torn up in the past two seasons so I figured to make another. For you wing aficionado's out there I would love to see one of these with a really good wing. I'm going to do one more and will stick it along with this on to see if they get better or worse. This is a sharp looking fly for salmon fishing and one not everyone will be carrying.

The Fin

Gary & Larry,

Thanks guys I was looking through some boxes today and saw that there needed to be a couple more of these. The best part about living here is that something will hit that like it's done something wrong
